Dear Friends and Family.
We had a special treat. Our daughter Faith Elise) and her husband Jessie came to visit us. We had a great time. It is wonderful to see family when the are so far away. It was so great to spend a week with them. We were blessed with perfect weather, 60's and 70's and no rain. They about wore themselves and us out. Fun, Fun. We are so grateful for a wonderful daughter. It was also good to see Jessie and spend some time with him. They were pretty tired when they got on the plane. We had a baptism last week of one of our YSA's, Sigurd Silevik. We helped the Sisters teach him and have really grown close to him. He is a student at the University here in Stavanger. The gospel has really changed his life. We are grateful to have him as a new member. We are really enjoying working with the YSA. We have a really active group right now. They really enjoy being together for activities. We are looking forward to General Conference, Stake Conference and a couple of baptisms. We love you all and really appreciate when you have time to respond. It is good to hear how you are doing.
