President and Sister Edgren arrive in Poland!

We found ourselves back eight hours later at the airport Friday afternoon, but this time...
...we were waiting for 2 very important people to the Church in Poland...the new Mission President and his wife. The wait was getting long...which meant there might be a problem. 
Soon they arrived from the baggage claim area....all smiles (even after losing 5 bags!) A warm welcome to President and Sister Edgren to the beautiful country of Poland.
The Edgrens at their new home...the mission home. We spent a few hours together "briefly" giving them information that hopefully will help them get quickly adjusted.  We love you and wish you the very best as you lead the Poland Warsaw Mission.  We departed in a taxi for our hotel knowing that everything will be perfect in Poland.  Tomorrow it is back to the airport again- only this time it's us that will be departing.  Three years has gone by so fast...and we have loved every minute of it!

  5. Thank you for your service in Poland and for all you have done for our missionary, Elder Walter, and the other fine missionaries. I know they will miss you.

    Sister Nielson, please know that we loved checking the blog each week to find out not only what was happening in the Poland mission, but also to see if our son was in any of the pictures. Your blog brought us so much closer to him and the work he is doing. I downloaded many posts for his mission book. I hope Sister Edgren continues your fine work!

  6. Sister Nielson, Thanks for being the ultimate Mission Mom for the last 3 years. We faithfully checked the blog daily. You were cheerful and welcoming to missionaries AND THEIR FAMILIES online! Our son sent us about 6 pictures in 2 years. When he came home I had a scrapbook with dozens of photos from your blog in it and his weekly emails. How could we have survived that long duration without your faithful perkiness??? YOU ARE SUNSHINE IN A SKIRT.
    Welcome back to life...and Vegas heat.

  9. It is with tears in my eyes that I read your last blog post in Poland. You have been beyond fantastic! Our son loves you and has enjoyed serving with you! Our family got to meet the Edgrens for lunch a month ago and we are excited for them to begin the work of the Lord there in such a choice land. Love and thanks to you!

  10. I'm still checking the blog, ;-) hoping for an update. It is muscle memory to check it daily, I'm sure, for most of us. Thank you so much for all the time and love you put into the blog, so we could watch in awe as our children arrived in Poland and went on their way. What a wonderful gift you gave us all. Thank you so very much!
