The Arrival of Fall in Sweden!!!!!

Thought we would start this Blog entry out by sharing some wonderful pictures of Sweden in Autumn.  This country is truly enchanted and It's beauty is beyond compare.

And yes, the Harvest is in full swing here in Sweden.  Elder Goffe has a watchful eye over the yield in Växjö.

Senior Couple Farewell Dinner!!!!!

On Thursday evening, September 16, 2016, the Senior Couples in the Stockholm area gathered at a little Italian place on Drottingsgatan for a farewell dinner for three of our Senior Couples who will be returning home over the next four weeks.  We missed the Watsons, Mitchells, and Hurlbut's, all who are laboring in areas a great distance from Stockholm.  A great evening was had and we certainly appreciate all of our Senior Couples and all the great work that they perform here in Sweden.

Pictured left to right are:  Sister Beckstrand, Sister and Elder Wood, friends of the Clouse's, Sister and Elder Krupp, Sister and Elder Robinson, Elder and Sister Clouse, Sister and Elder Koyle.

Elder and Sister Wood, who have been serving in the Stockholm YSA Center, will be returning home to Utah on September 17, 2016.  We love you and will miss you greatly.  Thanks for everything.

Elder and Sister Koyle, who have been serving as our Apartment Couple, will be returning home to Kanosh, Utah on September 22, 2016.  Our heartfelt Thanks go out to the Koyles for responding to our pleas for help.  You have done an incredible job here in Sweden and we will miss you more than words can describe.  God Bless you!!!!!

Elder and Sister Robinson, who have been serving as Records Preservation Missionaries, will be returning home to Utah on October 8, 2016.  These two have done an amazing job filming and documenting millions of names for Family Search.  Thank you for all that you have done to help those who have gone before.  They will forever be grateful to you for your work.
