Białystok

Greetings from Białystok.  For those of you who don't have your Poland geography down pat, Białystok is about three hours north-northeast of Warsaw near the border with Belarus.  We had a lot of opportunities to meet with other people today, first with a group of young and middle aged adults who meet with Don and Betty at an open air cafe twice per month to practice English, then again in the evening for pizza at Don and Betty's home with a group of students from Sweeden who are studying medicine in English at the medical university in Białystok to become medical doctors.  Don and Betty have a wonderful outreach to such a diverse group of people.  It's probably fair to say that we have all fallen in love with Polish food, Polish architecture, and the people we have met, both Polish and non-Polish.  It has been fun to see how alike we are with people who superficially seem so different from us.  We are all doing well and send our love to friends and family back home.

    Thanks for the updates. Thinking of and praying for you all throughout the day (and sometimes night!). Sounds like a fabulous time!
