The day they arrived we let them get settled in their hostel and walk around the Rynek and then had dinner at our Polish version of Chili's...not quite Chili's but it's ok.
|Our goal was to keep them awake to get their bodies adjusted to the time change...obviously we weren't super successful.|
Day 2 we went to church at our church and had lunch at a pizza place nearby. Then a few people began tearing out the stage at the church so they could rebuild it during the week. The rest of us did a prayer walk around the city. It was a great time of praying for our ministries as well as showing them the city of Krakow.
|Brett preached and did an amazing job!|
|Praying at the Jewish Ghetto wall.|
The next 3 days we spent doing crafts and games at Ella's school in their after school program, building the stage at the church, surveys of people in the Rynek about their thoughts on religion, and 2 of the evenings we had a youth meeting and had an amazing turn out of Polish teenagers. Unfortunately the girls and I did not stay for the youth nights so I have no pictures of that.
The last day they went to Auschwitz. Again, I did not participate so I don't have any pictures. We took them to eat twice at two of our favorite places...Babcia Malina and Pod Wawelem. It was a fast week but we had a great time. We are praying that the people they encountered were blessed and taken one step closer to God.
FBC Georgetown has amazing youth!!! Ella and Macie made great friends and were terribly sad they were leaving. They were already counting down to their return in 2 years and figuring out who would be able to come and who wouldn't. Thanks for being awesome!!!
