Sunday in Dąbrowa Górnicza

The team is about to begin its daily “debriefing,” so I will just share a few thoughts about the day before we gather  in the church hall at the church where we are staying in Dąbrowa Górnicza. After breakfast, we began our day at 7:45 a.m. when we left the charming Globtroter Guesthouse and loaded up the van with Don and Betty Orr and “intern” Jonathan (a university student from Canada) for the hour and a half trip to Dąbrowa.   Dąbrowa Górnicza is an industrial city situated to the east of Krakow.  Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by Pastor Jarek Ściwiarski and the entire family of Społeczność Chrześcijańska w Dąbrowie Górniczej.

With the help of Asha, a church member who translated for him, Dr. Entwistle gave a timely message during service.  Damaris and Sam offered special music with Kim as the accompanist.  One parishioner characterized their singing as “angelic.”  After service, we broke up into small groups and traveled to the homes of five church families where we enjoyed delicious Polish cuisine and fascinating conversations.  Amber, Katie, and Adrienne shared enthusiastically about their discussions over dinner and a journey to a local castle, where they continued their chat with their host family over cups of hot chocolate in the café of a re-built castle from the 13th Century.  Carrie reported that this was her favorite day yet!  (I would have to agree!)

Tomorrow, we begin a day of service.  We will be involved in some “spring cleaning” at the church and help with some neighborhood clean up and service activities.  We continue to marvel at the varied experiences and heritage of this wonderful country.  Thanks to all for your continued prayers.
