More pictures from Drake's mission president's wife.

Sister Nielson posted more pictures of Drake and other missionaries from his district on her blog.  I'll just copy and paste a selection from what she posted. Enjoy!

This morning we are in Bydgoszcz for Specialized Training.  President does his "Good, BETTER, BEST" training every once in awhile and wanted one last time to make sure all his missionaries knew what the difference was...

Because President uses a power point presentation, the room needs to be darker.  To help block out the windows and set everything up, we rely on our great Elders.  President brings his own large trash bags and duct tape.  His motto can use duct tape for anything. During our stay in Poland, he has found many uses for "bailing wire and duct tape".

 The great missionaries in the Bydgoszcz and Gdansk Districts.  Sisters Swenson and Young with Elders Allen and Harris.  Elders Vernon, Skolmoski, White and Wilson.

These young men were passing out some fliers for the Monte Cassino.  At first we thought they were Polish Scouts.  Then we realized they were young men announcing the exhibition of the Monte Cassino  (not like the casinos we have in Las Vegas... but the battle).   The uniforms they had on were British Army uniforms because when the Polish Army came in to support and save the British Armies, New Zealanders, South African and French troops, they had no uniforms.  They took British uniforms and put their Polish patches and insignias on them.  Something we learned from our excellent, local and friendly tour guide-  Artur.
