Middle row: (LtoR): Elders Baranowski (Warsaw I), Bokinsky (DL- Katowice), Vernon (Warsaw I), Wilson (DL- Warsaw II), Hayes (ZL- Katowice), Rittmanic (Lublin), Zelezniak (DL- Gdansk), Cieslak (DL- Szczecin), Jespersen (DL- Lodz) and Szymanski (DL- Krakow). Seated: (LtoR) Elders Garfield (DL-Wroclaw), Jensen (Assistant), Mikloyski (Assistant) and Weir (Wroclaw).
President Nielson always makes sure he arrives in plenty of time to get everything set up for the meeting. It takes a lot of time and effort to get these leaders in one spot in such a large country, so every minute President has with them is important.
All Elders are here and accounted for....and on time! The trains and tramwajs were working with us today! After some great instruction from President Nielson and the Assistants, everyone was ready for a break.
Lunchtime! I have found that it doesn't matter how much you make....they can always eat more.
