Warsaw Zone Training Meeting 11 Dec 2012

This week we have Zone Training Meetings. This meeting is to be held the week after Zone Leader Council and takes the place of District Meeting for that week. It enables our Zone Leaders to teach their Zones all that was discussed....'getting the water to the end of the row'.
As we drove up to the Wolska Chapel to attend the Warsaw Zone Training Meeting, we saw two of our great Lublin Elders (Wilson and Rittmanic) who had arrived a little early. They were helping Godfrey shovel snow from the church parking lot.
When Elders Kotter and Fletcher arrived, it looked as though we needed more shovels!  Elder Fletcher is busy talking with a man walking by...always talking with everyone.
Since most of the Elders helping were from 'snow states' (Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, ALASKA!), they knew just what to do. Elder Basha (front) from Arizona......Well......
When Elder Manwill and Elder Baranowski (serving in Warsaw II District) arrived, it was time to start the meeting.
As the meeting was going on, Elder and Sister Jensen made a 'McDonald's Run' to make sure we could feed this hungry crew fast and get them back out on the streets doing Missionary work.  It was quick and easy- the McDonalds 'option' doesn't happen often.
Elder Dopp (Warsaw Zone Leader) did a great job passing on information to the Missionaries in his Zone. Here he is with his companion, Elder Cieslak.
(Top):  Elders Pofelski and Walter (Office Elders) and (Sitting): Elders Rogers and Lanham, serving in Bialystok.
Elders Rittmanic and Wilson (Lublin), Elder Jensen (Assistant) and Elders Saltmarsh and Hooker (Warsaw I).
Sisters Packard, Young and Sheahan are doing a great job covering both Sister areas in Warsaw I and II for the time being.
The Warsaw Zone: Zone Training Meeting, December 11, 2012.  Elders Walter, Baranowski, Rittmanic, Manwill, Wilson, Pofelski, Dopp, Hooker, Jensen, Saltmarsh, Fletcher, Basha, Kotter, Rogers, Lanham with Elder and Sister Jensen and Sisters Sheahan, Packard and Young.  We have great missionaries in Poland!
Afterwards, the Missionaries in the Warsaw I got together in the chapel for a quick practice of the song they will be singing in church Sunday. Our Mission is truly blessed with many talented musicians AND singers.
Time to head home. Our Lublin Elders make their way to a tramway with a much needed case of Books of Mormon.  You can count on both these great missionaries talking with the approaching mother about the gospel.  
Tomorrow, we leave for Poznan to attend the Bydgoszcz Zone Training meeting being held there for the Poznan and Szczecin Districts.
