What a Blessing!

I have always said there was a higher reason why we came here to Bydgoszcz.  Well yesterday proved yet again why we are here.

As many of you know from my previous posts, I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints, or also know as a Mormon.  We have a small church here in town but I am truly greatful for them.  They have welcomed us with open arms since we moved here even though the majority do not speak English!

Yesterday we got to participate in a baptism for 2 GREAT men!  I am so thankful that over the past few months that I have met this gentlemen.  They are a great blessing to our church here in Bydgoszcz.

Getting ready for the big moment! Yes, we are at a small swimming pool. Here is one of the biggest differences between the church here in Poland compared to the states and other areas. Most churches here in Poland do not have a baptism font inside the church so they use either local pools or some even have an above ground pool that they fill up inside the church when there is a baptism, CRAZY huh?

Few of the members of the church singing a few songs.

And a Mormon is a Mormon no matter where you are, there is ALWAYS lots of food at social events!!  Looks like my strawberry cake is a hit!

Days like this make me truly appreciate living here to see such wonderful smiles on people!

What is your favorite food to bring to social gatherings?  Mine, cupcakes!
