Senior missionary get together in honor of those departing the mission.  These are disciples of the Lord who are courageous.  They come to an unfamiliar land and language willing to sacrifice as their do the Lords work.  We will miss them and their great service but wish them well as they return to their homes, friends and family.

Iceland zone conference

Power of coaches




A very busy weekend in Iceland with an annual marathon bringing visitors from around the world.  Our missionaries manned a booth making free hot pancakes.  While people waited for their pancakes, the missionaries taught them about the gospel.  Very successful!

Look who finally arrived in Iceland!  Our son after his mission.

These are disciples of the Lord.  They have been tried, tested, and faithful.  We are sorry to see them leave Denmark but know that they will be blessed in all their endeavors.  We've only known them for one month but have learned to love and respect each one.
