On Friday as soon as the kids were done with school we picked them up and off to make a 1pm train to Brzeg, about a 4 hour train ride away. David served there and taught a man there who was Baptized. Mariuszh met us at the train station and we all walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner. We had a great time visiting. There was a little girl Isabel's age at the restaurant. She was either the daughter or granddaughter of the owner and the kids had a great time playing with her. It was only 5:30pm, but we were still a little eary for the dinner hour, so the restaurant wasn't busy. The little girl was very friendly and she would just chatter along in polish as the kids would follow her around. David and Mariuszh had a nice time visiting together. Mariuszh spoke a little english so i was able to talk a bit with him as well. If we got stuck, then David would help with translating. It was so nice to meet him and get to know him a bit.
After dinner we made our way back to the train station to continue another 30 mins to the city of Wroclaw. Mariuszh said he would see us Sunday at church there. We climbed on the train and found it super crowded. There were no seats and the aisles had people standing and sitting all along it. We ended up just sitting on our luggage at the door of the wagon. Although the doors were closed, it is still cold in this part of the train. We were glad it was only a 30 minute ride and not longer.
