To welcome in the New Year we invited the missionaries from Sandvika, Drammen, and Olso to the mission home to eat and play games. After all the Christmas chocolate…we decided to serve Cafe Rio pork salads. It was a great night!
And…. we watched as the missionaries cut down a ceral box over and over until there was just a piece of carboard on the ground. The object was to pick it up with your teeth without putting your hands or knees on the floor.
Elder Broadbent’s compititive spirit emerged. He even borrowed an old pair of yoga pants from Sister Hill so he had a full range of motion…
Tuesday we began our interviews for the transfer. We attended District Meeting in Moss with the Fredrikstad/Moss/Sarpsborg missionaires.
On Wednesday we flew to Bergen and had dinner with Elder and Sister Cardon and the missionaries. The Elders made lutefisk for the first time.
Friday found us in Drammen with this great district…..
We were so happy to finally meet Elder Christian! After a visa delay and an apendectomy, he arrived at the Sandefjord Airport on Saturday afternoon. We were excited to find out that President Hill was a Bishop of a BYU ward many years ago and Elder Christian’s parents were in the ward. Small world!
Thank you so much for all the wonderful pictures! My son – as well as all the missionaries I’m sure – is having a wonderful time and the pictures reflect that. It does our hearts good to see these photos of our kids! We know you are so busy, so thank you for taking the time to also take photos as well as do all your other duties 🙂 We love you and President and all the senior missionaries who do so much for our missionaries.
These Pictures are priceless. You really do help our missionaries enjoy their missions, as well as teaching them so many truths. Thanks for sharing.
The Hills are amazing stewards to whomever they are serving. We had the privilege of serving with Bishop and Sister Hill on the activities committee. They have so much love, focus and energy!!! They are sooo much fun!!! Thrilled, grateful and joyful were emotions we felt knowing the Hills were serving with our son. Thanks so much for taking time to spend with our son. I appreciate all the details….pictures, email, messages, picking him up, feeding him, rushing to the Christmas party, the hours driving, patiently awaiting his late arrival . My heart is so touched as well as our family’s, thank you!!!!! <3 😉
We loved seeing Parkers arrival and reading all the news. It is so fun to see the pictures and see all the missionaries. They are so blessed to be able to serve with the Hills and be in beautiful Norway. Jennifer and Jeremy were so excited to hear that their former Bishop would be Parkers Mission President. How special is that. Thank you for your fine service…And thank you for all the news and beautiful pictures.
