CHRISTmas in Denmark

Elder Swenson had a great Christmas in Denmark, and I would like to personally thank two families in particular who I know made it so nice for him: The Jensen family and the Paulsen family. Brother Jensen is the ward mission leader in the Ballerup ward, and Bishop Paulsen is the bishop. Both of these families opened up their homes and fed the missionaries well, several times I'm sure. I thank the Lord for their generosity and know they will be blessed! We were able to skype with Rusty for several hours, and it almost felt like he was with us while we were opening gifts. Elder Swenson will be transferred next week, a bittersweet move, as he has been in this area for ten months and has a few investigators that may be close to baptism.

This is Bishop  Paulsen and his cute family, and his companion, bottom left, and the two other missionaries he lives with.

Picking out a movie to watch at the Jensen's home.
