First Post From Russia

23 June 2008
Dear Gregersen Family,
My name is Sister Cameron. My husband and I are serving here in the Russia Rostov Mission as the office couple. Sister Gregersen asked me to write you to let you know they arrived safely in Krasnodar and are all settled in their apartment. We went down with them and helped them for 3 days. We served in Krasnodar for 3 months before coming to the office last year, so we know our way around there pretty well. We showed them grocery stores, transportation, the branch building, etc. We tried to set up their internet but couldn't get it to work. Hey, that's Russia for you.
Sister Gregersen will email you as someone helps her set it up this week.She said to tell you they are fine, and to pray for them. She feels really out of her element. Their apartment is in the city on the 8th floor of their building. She says that Challis house is looking pretty good right now!!She will write more as soon as she can.
Love, Sister Cameron
Russia Rostov Mission Office

Happy Father's Day!

Hello Elder & Sister Gregersen! This is your family here... taking over your blog for a minute... wishing you, Dad (a.k.a Grandpa) a HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!

And now: A little message from some of your favorite grandkids...

We hope you've had a wonderful Father's Day in the MTC.

And Jerica would like to add: (with the help of her father) "Feliz Dia De Padre" She's certain you can learn Russian since you are related to her and she has such impressive bilingual skills. " :-)
