Transition!

Nice view out our living room to the balcony and then the grill place (brown structure)

Transition is the name of the game right now. After 8 months of being transients, we moved into our apartment on Feb. 28!! Woohoo!!!! It’s great to have so much help from friends!!! We’re not quite settled yet. The apartment needed a lot of fixing and we’re now in the final phase of wallpapering. Fortunately, the landlords arrange all of this. So hopefully, we’ll be all settled in by the end of April. It’s about 1/2 hour drive to take the kids to school, so we’re getting used to that also.

Our church is also going through a significant change of location right now. Please keep Kroskyrkan in prayer – change is never easy  for a church! And for us as it impacts our ministry as well.

The Swedes have a 5th season they call spring-winter!! It’s now, while we still have quite a bit of snow and ice, but the days are getting quite long, sunny, and warm!! And so, we are all about transition, leaving the cold, dark, insecurities behind and looking forward to a season of warmth, sunshine, and growth!! It reminds me (Gwen) of my life verse, Philippians 3:13 & 14 – “Brothers and sisters, I don’t consider that I have taken hold of it yet. But here is the one thing I do. I forget what is behind me. I push hard toward what is ahead of me. I push myself forward toward the goal to win the prize. God has appointed me to win it. The heavenly prize is Christ Jesus himself.”

Sunday’s here!!!!

What a wonderful day when we can worship Jesus with our brothers and sisters!!! There is nothing quite so joyous or fun!! The language doesn’t matter, the same Lord and Spirit are in each place!!! We are so privileged to be a part of Korskyrkan. We are so honored to have been a part of so many churches throughout the years and have so many wonderful brothers and sisters from all over! It’s a little taste of heaven!!! We have so much to look forward to!! Below is a little bit of the worship service at our current church. Hope you enjoy it. Gwen 🙂

Relationships

Today, Tony had the privilege to preach at Korskyrkan – our home church here in Luleå – where he was able to share on the topic of  relationships. Included were discussions about the perfect relationship within the Trinity, the relationship between God and humans, and the relationships humans have with each other.

After church, our friends Claus and Christina hung out at our flat and enjoyed fika with us.

BTW…Happy Labor Day to our friends in the States!
