We arrived in Poland to meet with the Bishop Jerzy Samiec of the Evangelical Augsburg Church in Poland. The church today has about 70,000 members. At the end of World War II, about 200,000 Lutherans remained in Poland. Since WWII, most of the decrease can be attributed to a low birth rate and the departure of Lutherans to other countries for better opportunities. Prior to the World Wars, approximately 1,000,000 Lutherans lived in Poland.
In our conversation, we explored for discussion between the LCMS and the Evangelical Augsburg Church in Poland. The meeting was positive. In the evening we drove to Slovakia, for a trip to Budapest.
