We are sad/happy today as we said goodbye to our final group of missionaries. This was our 26th transfer since arriving in Norway… plus many, many other random pick ups and drop offs at the airport! We know the Olso airport well!
It warms our heart when we welcome missionaries as they arrive fresh from the MTC. I love how excited they are to finally be in Norway! We teach them, train them, serve with them, laugh with them and sometimes cry with them…always LOVE them and then…we hug them goodbye. They return to their families and we continue on.
Each group is special. Each group forms a bond of their own. We love hearing of their experiences and listening to their testimonies of the Savior and of His work. This group was wonderful! We shared a very special evening with these 2 sisters and 5 elders. We sang “We’ll Bring the World His Truth” and the “Norway Oslo Mission Song” together for the last time in the mission home. Bitter sweet for sure!
Singing the Norway Oslo Mission Song…
Thanks to Elder Applegate for sharing his music talents!
Sister Horgmo is from Moss Norway…just an hour away. Her mom and sister came for dessert and picked her up!
Ha det bra! They served with all their heart, strength and might!
A final chapter for us!! Can’t wait to thank you in person for the loving care you gave to our son. We are just starting to hear all the details. Thank you! Thank you! ?
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!! How do you adequately thank someone for watching over your child and guiding them so well these past two years?? So much goodness and love has been shown. What an example of the Savior’s Love. Nick speaks very highly of you. He loves you!! From my momma heart, thank you again so much!! And safe travels home. I know your family has missed you very much. We appreciate your selfless service. ❤️❤️❤️
Love these pictures! The one of those elders walking away is so awesome!
Oh my. What a joyful, tender heart full of feelings as I looked through these final pictures of our Norwegian missionary son and those other young men who have become such great friends and fellow mssionaries! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! We could not have asked for a better mission president and his wife to lead, guide, and direct our son through his mission. We are so excited to meet you when you come home so very soon!!! We love you!!!
It is so strange to see my wonderful Elders altogether leaving the mission and not being there. I loved starting my mission with them but am sad that I couldn’t finish it with them. So proud of all of their hard work! And thankful to President and Sister Hill for taking care of all of us!
What is the good month to come and visit Norway.
Oh how I love to see all your pictures and experiences. I sure would to come and visit Norway someday.
