Safe and sound in Denmark!

This morning we received the following email along with these photos from the mission office:

Greetings from the Denmark Copenhagen Mission!

We are sending you an email to let you know that your missionary arrived in Denmark, safe and sound.

We are very excited to have him here. He looks excited to work and serve the Lord in Denmark. Thank you so much for preparing your missionary for this time.

Missionaries in the Denmark Copenhagen Mission usually have their preparation days on Monday. They will email on their next Monday. Just know that they are here and safe.

When you send packages: A) send them to the office at the address below. B) Do not send a package worth more than 50 dollars, or they may have to pay an additional tax to receive it. Missionaries love to get mail. All mail comes to the mission office and we forward it to them. The Danish Mail will no longer let us forward packages from here. If you need to get something to your missionary in a hurry, have him give you the address where he is currently serving. A problem with this is that he may have a transfer before he receives the package. Make sure that you visit with your missionary about future transfer dates and when you are sending a package. Otherwise, send it to the mission office and we will get it to them at our monthly Zone Conference, Specialized Training, or when someone is traveling to that part of the mission.

His permanent address is:

Elder Kenneth Swenson
Danish Copenhagen Mission Office
Borups Allé 128, 1 tv
2000 Frederiksberg

Elder Swenson will be serving in Ballerup with Elder Stoffey
His current address is
Slettebjergvej 2, st. th
2750 Ballerup

The trainers are the best of the best! Your missionary will have an amazing trainer that will help start off his mission in the right way! We hope all is well with you. Have a wonderful day!

  1. Hi! My name is Shannon Keyser. My family and I live in Denmark and we just finished having dinner with Elder Swenson. He told me that he had a mission blog, so I just had to look it up. Elder Swenson is doing great and is so excited about being here in Denmark. He is a great missionary!

    1. Shannon! Thank you so much for sharing this! I am so excited to hear all I can about Elder Swenson and Denmark. Bless you and your family for feeding the missionaries. We are having the missionaries in our area here for dinner on Sunday. What a great idea to write a note to their parents. I think I will do the same. I'm so appreciative of you and your family. Please tell them thank you. If there is anything I can ever do for you, please let me know.
