Missionary Discussions 29 Oct 2013
While sharing stories of my mission with my sons, I have tried to relate to them the content of the "rainbow discussions" (a.k.a. A Unified System for Teaching Families). I went through my memory box to find them, but came up empty. Can't Google 'em either. Does anyone have them around still? I'd love a scanned copy. English or Deutsch.

Swiss Ambassador visiting Utah 11 Sep 2012
The Swiss Ambassador to the United States, Manuel Sager, will be visiting Utah this week and will be the guest at a private luncheon at the SL Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, September 13th, 2012. If any other "Geweseners" have also had post-mission business dealings with Switzerland, or have Swiss roots otherwise, I could probably get a few souls into the luncheon. Please contact me if you are interested.

Glen Douglas Lybbert 23 Nov 2010
For those who served under Presidents Mabey and Christensen, albeit few of you are registered, you may want to know that Elder Glen Douglas Lybbert passed away March 28, 2008, in Las Vegas, NV, from melanoma. Doug was my LTM companion in the St. Gallen District. Also, if any of you have contact information regarding other elders of the St. Gallen LTM District (June to September 1967) , i.e., Gerald Hyde, Richard (Dick) Jardine, Tim Reynolds, I would love to hear from you so that I might contact them. (Mitch Wilson, who was in our St. Gallen District, was killed in an automobile accident in August 1969, in Austria just a few weeks before he was to return home).

Members I knew 23 Feb 2010
Can anyone recall these members? They were baptized 1961-64.

They will likely not be with us, but if so, I'd like to contact them, or their children.

Sister Meier, had 2 children, Eddie and Lily. I heard that Lily later joined the Church, and served a mission in Great Britain(?)

Fraulein, later Sister Frei. She was a handicapped lady that worked as a seamstress from her house. Memory fades, but I believe she lived just outside of Biel.

Sister Kiener, who had two children, a son , Willi, who was a barber, and a daughter, Elspeth.

Any help will be appreciated.

Apartment photos? 16 Nov 2008
I am looking for pictures of missionary apartments. I was looking through my pictures from 20 years ago and realized that I never took pictures of some of the places I lived. Anyway if anyone who served back then and lived in Winterthur, Itingen, Bern, Weingarten or Weil am Rhein, and has pictures of the apartment from the outside, I would appreciate a copy of it. Thanks.

Swiss Days 28 Aug 2008
Swiss Days in Midway is every Labor Day weekend which is tomorrow 8/29 and Saturday 8/30. It's a lot of fun with all the Swiss stuff and a chance to reminisce back to the mission so you should all come. We could all go and practice our Swiss German.

Elder Cody Carr 31 Jan 2008
To those who served under President Worlton--Elder Cody Carr, from Tremonton, UT, passed away over 10 years ago in an accident at his parents' home. He left a young widow, but no children. He was still with the Air Force at the time, having returned to the US Air Force Academy after his mission in 1978, but his death was not related to his military service. Elder Carr was a fine missionary with whom I had the honor to serve in Singen, Germany, in 1979.

Familien bestehen fuer immer 20 Jan 2008
The following comment has been submitted by Paul White.

Dear Jonathan,

...FYI, I have scanned and loaded onto YouTube the filmstrip presentation called "Familien Bestehen für Immer", produced by the missionaries in 1982. President Bischoff is the narrator. There are two versions of the film available, English and German.

For anyone who was ever in the Zurich mission, certainly for those around
82, this should bring a smile. Sorry about the quality of the pictures and audio, but I used the filmstrip and tape several times a week on my mission, then stashed them in a box for 25 years.

So, please let people know the presentation is out there. Thanks.

Alles gueti,
Paul White 82-84
(Go to the YouTube home page and search for "Familien bestehen fuer immer".)

Elder Kurt Frischknecht 08 Oct 2007
For some of you this may be very old news, but I received an email from Manfred Grzan who was my last companion in Balingen, Germany back in 1979. In his email, he informed me that Kurt Frishknecht who served with us from 1977-1979 and who also was a companion of Elder Grazan, was killed in an auto accident some three years ago. I was not aware of this, but had been thinking about Kurt a lot lately and was trying to locate him. I'd given up trying and then received Manfred's email. Just thought some of you who didn't know might want to.

Dear Friends,
Some of you you will remember my sister, Melissa Dalton, and brother-in-law, Randall Bradford, from the MTC where they were instructors during 1985-1988. Just days ago their oldest child, Parker, died after being involved in a drowning accident. I have included the link for Parker's obituary.
