Drake -- Dawid and the goats

Poznań Streets
(Note the Sweater!)

Dear Mom, 

That's cool about the Facebook group that you made. That is super fun that you are in contact with the missionaries moms (and dads).

My exchange with Elder Saltmarsh was super awesome.  It was way cool getting to go back to Bydgoszcz.  There was actually like a miracle that happened!

So you remember that Dawid kid? The one that chased us down on his bike?
Well, had lost contact with him and couldn't get a hold of him after our first few meeting with him.

Elder Saltmarsh and I were walking to the chapel and there was Dawid walking down the street! So I talked to him and he said that he wanted to meet with us and his phone number had changed. So he gave us his new number.

It was way awesome! Because Elder Stockford and I are the only the missionaries that had ever seen him. So if I hadn't been in Bydgoszcz on that exchange, we would would have never found him again!
So that was pretty awesome!! :)

In our apartment -- Map of Poland

This week, we did what is called a Free Table. We set up a table at a busy street corner. And put a bunch of church stuff on it like Book of Mormons, pamphlets, cards, stuff like that. And then had a sign saying that we were giving away stuff for free. It was WAY successful!!!! We ended up teaching (with the Sisters included) a total of 9 lessons and gave out 11 Books!! In only like an hour!! It was way cool!!! We are definitely doing that again!!! :)

We had Branch Conference this week and that was cool.

Well, I better get going!! :)

Tell everybody that I love them!

Have a great week! :)

Love, Elder Drake Allen

These are goats above the clock of City Hall on the main square.  They come out every day at 12 o'clock and bang heads 12 times!  Really weird... actually... haha
It's from some old story in Poznań where 2 goats like saved the city from a fire and became heroes...Look it up!
