The mision in PARAGUAY       Mision in Brazil


Dear friends!


But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law. Galatians 4: 4

This short phrase sums up the mystery of Christmas : Jesus came at the right time, in the fullness of time. And it is a pleasure to celebrate this Event again !

One year has passed since last Christmas letter. One year with many events, but fortunately not the big and dramatic. We do it well.

Family means the lot to us, and special attention are the grandchildren .

Hosna and Ariel still lives in Jamestown. Their children, Ava Adriana is now 1.5 years and Leila is 4.5 years. It's not that long road home ....

Rosi and Ruben still lives in the apartment downstairs. Taina is almost 9 years and is in 3 class, and Gabriel, 6.5 years, is in first class.
They're constantly visiting us , since the road is short. Rosi goes now the " Health School" and she is really clever!

Elisabeth and David are both working in the municipality, respectively, in home care and assisted living.

Celine 's almost nine years, and is in 3 class. Patrick is 10 years old and is in 5 class. Christian is 15
years, the last year of middle school. Alexander is 17 years old, and goes now the second year of high school .

Both Celine and Taina singing in children's choir JOY at the church of Betania, and Alexander plays keyboards in the youth choir.

But retirement needs don't means a quiet period. We have both worked somewhat in the hospital (Rudolf most), and it is always pleasant to meet colleagues and to continue the subject .....

Likewise activities and tasks in the church takes part of our time .
Brit- Lajla is much concerned with home and grandchildren. Especially the little ones is ever here .

Mission is the another important activity. Rudolf was both in May and December in Bolivia and Paraguay. This applies to monitoring of various projects. If this interests, see www.pymisjon.com

In June we were in northern Norway, all the way up to Tromsø. We drove with caravan. It makes the journey more flexible. Both the north and southbound trip, we visited family and friends around. We were incredibly lucky with the weather. To travel through this region in bright sunshine, it's great ! So early in the summer is there some snow in the mountains, which puts a special color on them. Beautiful!

Wishing you a peaceful Christmas and a good and prosperous year !



God jul!!

Godt nytt år!!
