During our visit to the north in April, we met with the pastor and an elder in the church in Gdynia. During our conversation, they invited us to attend their family camp at the beginning of June. This would be just 5 days after returning from Austria, plus another 9+ hour trip each way. But we decided it was worth going. So we registered, paid our money and packed our bags. Me being the introvert I am was quite apprehensive. We knew not one person. I was scared out of my mind. But with a good attitude we arrived day 1 of the 4 day trip.
It was a great test of language skills. I feel like I failed. It was so hard. Every break I wanted to run to our room and hide. (And I often did!) I wanted to leave a day early to go back home. But we didn't. And honestly I'm glad we didn't. It was the last afternoon/evening that I felt we made some connections. The girls made some friends and are looking forward to seeing them again in August. Ella even met a girl who go to the American Elementary School.
Amidst all the anxiety and frustration, it was a good time. The worship in the church is amazing. Each night we had praise and worship was such a blessing. Poland played their first game of the EuroCup that weekend and it was fun to watch it with a big group...I don't even like soccer. All in all I'm glad we went. Here are a few pics from the weekend. I only had my phone that weekend but it's all good.
Actually no pics because apparently I deleted them from my phone. Oh well. Next time. :)
