Day 10 – Side trip to Finland

It’s amazing how difficult it was to find a church in Stockholm to sing at on a Sunday morning in early June.  We worked for months to set something up to no avail.  So, we figured if we can’t go to a church, we’ll bring the church to us. Our tour guide, Roger Berg, set Read More …
