"And after they had been received unto baptism . . . their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God, to keep them in the right way . . ." Moroni 6:4
A New Beginning
We are Elder and Sister Grassli serving in the Zurich Switzerland Mission as Outreach missionaries in the Bern Institute of Religion for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are new at blogging, but our daughter, Jane Anne, and Elder Reinhardt and Elder Trogden have made it possible. Pictured here are the wonderful elders enjoying the meal we bribed them with!
Why We're Here
We have planned on serving a mission since before we were married. We were absolutely delighted with the call to Switzerland and we'll tell you why. Elder Grassli is a native Swiss, and that alone is enough to delight us, because we love the country so much. In addition, his patriarchal blessing said he would retain his mother tongue for the Lord's work. But wait, there's more! We were so pleased and surprised to have this call to fellowship new young adult converts and nurture the less active, because missionaries, led by Elder J. David (Bud) Billeter, did that for him as a new convert. So that's why we're here and why we love it. We will do our best!
To Missionary Families
If you want to see your Swiss missionary, he or she just might be here! If you don't see him or her on this page, click on older posts below or on this link: Missionary Gallery. We also add random missionary pics from time to time.
