He received some kind messages from friends, new and old, this week on Facebook. So far, he's had 5 or 6 people from Poland "friend" him, so I'm happy they are able to read the updates I put on there!
Last week was their Zone Training meeting in a nearby town named Poznan. It was wonderful to see some awesome pictures of him, his companion, and the other missionaries in his area. They all look so happy and healthy!
Lance and his companion
I'm so glad Lance gets to serve with these fine missionaries!
Pizza for lunch, it appears.
Today, they are attending a culture night which is going to be a gypsy jazz performance. He is VERY excited to attend that! He has an appreciation for the gypsy culture and, of course, jazz music. In fact, one of the tracks on his CD is titled Gypsy Jazz, which he dedicated to my late father (who also loved jazz).
He closes his email with thanks for the advice we give to him and reassures us that all things are going smoothly. He loves Poland, the people, the language, and all other aspects of his mission...well, except for the weather still being cold. But other than that, he is doing well.
