2008 reunion 07 Apr 2008
Last night I attended a reunion in sandy Utah with my father Mark Winsor. It was delightful meeting people he served with and others who served in Norway. President Haugen spoke about the work of missionaries. His dear wife suffered a stroke many years back and has lost her speech but the warmth and love spills out of her. She is such a lovely lady. I had the pleasure of hearing the laugauge of the country I was born and eating the food as well. I do hope next year more come and share with us the experiences they have had. PLEASE if anyone is willing to add to my scrapbook I will be putting together send it all to 7467 S. Gold Cir West Jordan Utah 84084 or email it to jeepeater80@hotmail.com. I really would like everyone to send stories and photos and news clips letters or whatever you have.

Karsten and Ellen Andersen 18 Jan 2008
If anyone knows about Karsten and Ellen Andersen who lived in Fyllingsdalen and were baptised in the Bergen Branch in 1976 I would appreciate hearing from you. Especially if you have any contact information. I was one of the missionaries who taught them and I was blessed to witness their baptism.

Norske Family History 26 Dec 2007
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I have just joined in with the Family History Centers in a work that will extend my missionary efforts of the past. The church has received authorization to do extraction work from Norwegian Farm Books. These books contain the family history of each farm district around Norway. This information was required by Norway about 1923. Although the language is not required to do the work, I have found it to be helpful and fun. For me, after 30 years or silence, I can still read the language ..... I just don't know what I'm reading!

If any of you are interested, please contact me at dstradling55@mac.com and I'll forward the information on for you.

Godt Jul !

Hilsen,

Eldste Dann Stradling 1975-1977

Sissel: Northern Lights 13 Dec 2007
I know many of you became fans of Sissel's music while in Norway. But you may not know she has a new album out: Northern Lights. I highly recommend it.

In March of this year, in the hauntingly beautiful 17th-century Norwegian village of Roros where little has changed since 1650 - a magical musical event took place. In the landmark church that has served as a beacon for the community since 1784, Sissel performed in concert with world renowned special guest tenor José Carreras. The magic of that night in UNESCO World Heritage site of Røros was captured for all of us to experience.

John Langeland Book 05 Oct 2007
Dear Former Norway Missionaries:

I thought you may be interested in knowing the President John Langeland has recently published an autobiography entitled: "A More Excellent Way: The John Langeland Story." The book has been published by The Lighthouse Institute and additional information is available at www.thelighthouseinstitute.com. I believe the book will be available through Deseret Book. You may also contact Bergen Distributing about acquiring a copy by calling ph. (801) 972-3003 or by e-mail to bdi@bergendistributing.com

Palmer 23 Aug 2007
So back to my original question, has anyone read Palmer's book? If so I'd be interested in your thoughts and you can e mail me directly. It is certainly worth a read. I understand it would make some people uncomfortable but that doesnt make it less of a work nor can someone challenge Palmer's dedication and service to the Church. Just read his resume.

Grant Palmer's Book 12 Aug 2007
I have not read this book but from what Bro Palmer wrote about himself it seems that he has lost some faith in the divine origins of the Restoration. Here is the link from his publisher's website: http://www.signaturebooks.com/excerpts/insider's2.htm
A wikipedia article states that Bro Palmer wrote under a pseudonym while employed by the Church Educational System and retired early before his book was published. Here's the article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Insider's_View_of_Mormon_Origins
All in all, it doesn't seem like a beneficial read to me. For a scholarly approach to Joseph Smith and the restoration of the Church I would suggest Richard Bushmans "Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling." I have read this one and it is excellent.

Need a job speaking Norwegian? 27 Apr 2007
I am currently working for XanGo in Lehi and we are in dire need of a Norwegian speaking customer service rep. It's a good job with an awesome company and it would work really well for someone recently returned who is going to school at BYU or UVSC. You can contact me through the site if you are interested or know someone who is. I can then get you all the information you need to apply.
Heie Norge!

Damon in Moss 03 Apr 2007
Does anyone know if a guy named Damon from Moss is still in that area? He was the missionaries age in 1998 which would make him about 27-28 now. He loved basketball and video games.

Where are they?? 25 Feb 2007
I was baptized in 1963 by Eldste Arnold Butterfield and Eldste Wade C. Starks, who confirmed me. Eldste Starks was then a "greenie", who was later assigned to Oslo under President Peterson. I was then also a missionary, working in the Mission Office at Drammensveien 96G.
I would very much like to know how these fine missionaries to whom I owe SO much, are faring. Last I heard, the Stark family had moved from Medford, Oregon to Salt Lake City.
If anyone knows them and can contact them, please let them know that I am still active in the Church, attending the Temple frequently, and am called as a Family History Consultant. I love my calling!
I can be contacted at <bestemor3@verizon.net>
Thanks!!

Correction 12 Dec 2006
I just became informed of this posting about Lisa on this website. I want to make sure that everyone knows that I did not post this message. I believe someone has used my User ID to post this. I have contacted the web master of this site to resolve the issue. I hope that the contents of this message are not true, but if it is true, my heart and prayers go out to the Gunderson family.

Christine Kolstad address? 25 Nov 2006
Hi, I served as a missionary in Lillstrommen 10 years ago, wherein we tracted into Chrstine Kolstad. We taught her for about 8 months, then I went home. She was baptized several months later and I would like to get in contact with her - a simple Christmas Card. Could anyone please help me. I believe she is in the new Romerike Ward.

Thanks,

Borgli 30 Aug 2006
Does anyone know whether the Borglis, who lived in Baerum or Haslum, ever joined The Church? He is Norwegian, but Mrs. Borgli is English, and were very kind to us when there in 1962 and recieved all the discussions about The Church. They were very close to baptism when I moved from the area, but never did hear if they ever joined.

looking for Siri from Skien 18 Aug 2006
The last city I served in was Skien. This would have been in December of 1989. We had an investigator named Siri who was a student in Porsgrun. We taught her right up until I finished my mission. About a month after getting back to the States, I got a letter saying she had been baptized.

I have tried to find out where she is. All I am able to find out is that she married a missionary and is now living in the States. I don't know who the missionary is, but if any of you do, please let me know.

Thanks,

Eric Martin 1988-1989

Have any other Brits Served In Norway? 14 Jul 2006
I have always wondered if any other Brits - that's true Brits born and raised subjects of H.M., ever served in Norway? While I served in Norway, I asked that question of several of the older life long members up and down the country, but they could not recall ever meeting a British missionary prior to me - I know that my polling was very unscientific and probably doesn't mean much. There were also a few expats (Skien) and dual citizens living in Norway too, and they didn’t know either. So, once off my mission and living in SLC, I inquired with the Church's History and Missionary Departments, but alas they too were unable to give me an answer. So, if your a Brit by the aforementioned definition or know an Brit ex-missionary who served at any time in Norway, please leave a message!
