Land of the Vikings (6)

I have been on a trip to Tidan over the weekend. My pictures are downloaded but there is no time to write. We have visitors coming so I have to put away the computer from the table that I use. Hopefully there will be some time tomorrow to continue my tale.  As for now, I’ll show some pictures of that farming town.

November is a dreary month. No sun shining through, no bright colors, lots of rain. To see Sweden in all her glory one has to come here in the summer, or go up north in the winter to see the snow-covered landscape.

The State Church and the cemetery

The rail road overpass

Here are the Swedish “marshmallows,” the food for the cows, as Mary says. Could it be for these little ones that bid us welcome?

The grocery store

The not-so-Swedish house.

Swede’s don’t paint their houses in such bright colors. Tidan is a town with lots of immigrants. This is a “Polish” house!

See you tomorrow!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
