We are thrilled to have 14 new missionaries arrive this week. Sorry for the delay in posting these pictures. We are off to a district meeting in Bergen this morning but I wanted to post these quickly. Nine of them arrived on time and 5 came on a later flight from London…baggage issues with American Airlines. We had some lost luggage but it arrived the next day….We were thrilled they all came in 1 day and we were able to get them on to their new areas the next morning! They were given their bedding which was a highlight for some. There were several who wanted to stay up to see those that arrived late in the evening…but jet lag prevailed. We have two Elders that grew up as next door neighbors! Elder Osguthorpe and Miller! There is a photo of them with President Hill. We love our Sisters and the two in these photos are brand new companions and had met each other 30 minutes before I snapped this photo. They had just discovered that they were both captains of their high school soccer teams! Oh.. Our AP is Elder Parkinson and he has a twin in Hungary….We have a new Elder that is also a twin and his twin is going to Hungary!
I will update this later….these are not even in order but I wanted to share ASAP! and….there may be duplicates! Sorry! Have a great weekend!!
These photos and all the cool connections make me a bit teary. I’m so inspired by how the Lord’s work is moving forward.
Sister Hill thanks for posting these wonderful pictures. Our son is Eldste Hall. My husband, Doug, and I had an opportunity to visit with your sister Joy and her husband and learn a little more about Norway and you and President Hill. Thank you for taking care of our sons. Eldste Hall has been so excited to get to Norway!
You are totally amazing. How kind and let these mama’s and dads know that their kids have arrived safe and are ready to go to work!!! Love the photos, good job.
These pictures made me teary as well. I love seeing all these missionaries and pictures of you and Tracy. I love how their wonderful spirits just shine through. Thanks for sharing not only pictures of the missionaries but of the beautiful country of Norway as well. I’m sure all the moms and dads love this!
As grandparents, we too, are grateful to learn of the safe arrival of our grandson, Eldste Joshua Rasband. We are delighted by the blog account and photos. Many thanks!
