We had an unexpected trip to Warsaw on Tuesday after Monday’s P Day when Elder Smith broke his ankle playing soccer with the other missionaries. We left Tuesday morning to take Elder Smith to the Mission Home for his exit interview with President Nielson. We stayed overnight at the Home and departed for Katowice the next morning. The Nielsons put him on the plane at 6:00 a.m. the next morning. (They needed to be at the airport two hours earlier for check-in and security.) This is why Mission Presidents always come home looking tired after their 3 years in the field! But the Nielsons love doing these selfless acts for all their missionaries. They are wonderful servants of the Lord.
After getting back to Katowice we quickly put our English lesson together and prepared some food for Institute that night. Friday we had a mission training session by the Nielsons with the missionaries from Wroclaw. The topic was Good, Better, and Best Missionaries. And these missionaries are certainly the BEST. Our part of the training was the food, so the temporal nourishment as well as the spiritual nourishment completed the training.
