Friday and Saturday, December 16-17, 2016, we were able to have all the Senior Couples, with the exception of Elder and Sister Watson, here in Stockholm to enjoy the Christmas Markets and to have dinner and lunch with one another. Dinner on Friday evening was at TGI Fridays, where we had a wonderful evening together. Saturday morning, we all met at the Mission Home at 9 AM to receive some training as to responsibilities within the mission. Elder and Sister Anderson, our Apartment Couple, provided training on the inspection of missionary apartments and what senior couples need to be looking for and helping the missionaries with. Remember, the Spirit of God cannot dwell in an unclean place!
Elder and Sister Pettit introduced themselves to the other Senior
Couples and then explained what they have been doing the last year and
what their assignment change will have them doing here in Sweden and the
other Nordic Countries.
We then traveled to downtown Stockholm, Old Town (Gamla Stan), for lunch
and to shop at the Swedish Christmas Market. Lunch was delicious, as
we gathered in the basement of Under Kastangen (Under the Chestnut), to
enjoy a real old receipe Swedish Meatball dinner. This is a must for
all who visit Stockholm. Pictured left to right, clockwise, are:
