A (Surprise!) New Sister Arrives in the Mission!

Marta has been a HUGE help to our missionaries in Poznan (Sisters Bown and Lidtka; Elders Jespersen and Caskey). She is a great member-missionary. But it's time for her to start her own mission!
As she boarded the train in Poznan...
...she was met by the Assistants (Zelezniak and Tiner) in Warsaw. A few months ago Sister Antkowiak recieved her mission call to serve in the Illinois Chicago Mission.  Everything was ready except one thing...her US visa.  We are still waiting on this but her time to serve the Lord was not put on hold.  She begins her mission service in the Poland Warsaw Mission.  She arrived at the Mission Home to be set apart and receive her first assignment.
We all had a wonderful visit. Sister Antkowiak was set apart and is now a full time missionary and representative of the Lord and His Church.  There was one more thing that we needed to attend to...
She needed to leave with us something to remember her by.  Sister Antkowiak was here last weekend at the YW Conference and has been a tremendous teacher and member in Poznan.  When her visa paperwork is all resolved, she will enter the Provo MTC and then head to the Illinois Chicago Mission shortly thereafter.
Her two new companions are Sister Howells and Sister Barth.  All three will be serving in the Warsaw I Branch.  What a great addition to our mission!
After dinner, being set apart and everything else,  she was off with her companions to get her luggage put away and then out to preach the gospel to the people in Warsaw.  Welcome, Sister Antkowiak, to the Poland Warsaw Mission! We love you and are grateful that you will be serving alongside us for a short while!
