Yesterday was an AWESOME day at church!! OK, yes I say that a lot about our church activities but this one is one that can never be repeated again!!
Our branch here in Bydgoszcz became part of a newly formed district!! (Yes, I know I am using lots of exclamation points but I am just that excited of this!!) For those of you not LDS(Mormon) think of it this way… in Anglican terms think branch=parish and district=diocese. We were part of the Warsaw district but they formed the Bydgoszcz District with 3 other branches here in Poland… Poznan, Gdansk and Szczecin. Is this not neat?
2 times a year we do a District Meeting where all the branches come together on a Sunday for a church service. Since we are now our own district that meant not driving to Warsaw but getting to spend it right in our church building. I spent a total of 6 hours at church yesterday but it was so much fun it just flew by! I was in charge of feeding all 90 of us after the service. Do you think I would do all the food? Nope! The Senior missionaries from the 3 other towns made a crock-pot full of sloppy joes and myself and the missionaries here in Bydgoszcz did the rest, from shopping at the Polish version of Sam’s Club to cleaning and prepping the fruit and vegetables.
To tell you how excited my girls were with church yesterday they both asked this morning if we could have church again today. How awesome is that?
Now I am not sure what changes will be coming with this new formed district in Poland in our branch but I can’t wait and see.
What is your favorite food to bring to a pot-luck?
