We have worked with some amazing missionaries during the past three years and this group is among the best of them. They have been great leaders, great teachers and disciples of Christ. We have been blessed to have several Norwegian missionaries this past year and two returned home in this group. No missionaries are coming to replace them this transfer because borders are still closed in Norway. We are down to 43 missionaries now.
Sister Horgmo returns home to Moss, Norway, Sister Wyssenbach to Sandvika, Norway, Sister Hilterbrand to Utah, Sister Benedict to Idaho and Elders Van Slooten and Tilby head back home to California. Interestingly, Sister Benedict's grandfather, Atle Tessem, was a recent convert from North Norway when he moved to Idaho in 1975 and was one of the language training mission instructors for President Tew at the Rexburg Idaho Language Training Mission.
These great group returning missionaries joined Sister Tew, Elder Thackeray and Elder Farnsworth at the mission home.
