Sweden in my Heart 17

Vaggeryd 13

Let me take you on a “stroll” through Vaggeryd, from the Casa Blanca (White House), as Dad calls it, to the store. My mission was to buy Marabou chocolate for my daughter and Cactus Läkerol pastilles that my grandkids love, especially David and Sarah.

This is a sunny day so we had to take advantage of it. The weather has been rainy and cold. We don’t have a car, so it has to be a walk. Dad, my 94-year-old father, was gracious to push the wheelchair. It should be the other was around.

Vaggeryd is a town with about 5.000 people. The walk to the store might be one kilometer. In the background of the next picture you can see that they are building a “highrise.” There are two apartment buildings under construction.

If you read my blogs last year some information and pictures might be repetitive. Sorry about that! Here come a coulple of pictures of the most popular color for houses: yellow!

This is the white house where my sister Agneta and her husband Ola live. On the second floor is where Dad and Mary live and where I have been staying.

Last year we had many beautiful days and I could walk down to the lake. This year has been different, maybe because I’ve had more work and more pain, but today I made it down to the lake.

I love this view I can get through an open arch-way in a house by the lake.

My sister has methodically been “killing” some trees which root system have taken over the yard. They are slowly dying (on the right), but not the beautiful tree farther down the street.

Back at the house I was welcomed by Misssan.


That’s it for my big adventure of the day! Now it’s back to business. I’ve been working on a lesson about Nicodemus and the visit with Jesus that changed his life. It’s got pictures to color and pictures to use as flash-cards as well as a PowerPoint.

If you speak Spanish and would like to see them, they will be in hermanamargarita.com under Halloween.

May you have a good rest of the week!


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.
