My Story:

Hej! My name is Melissa Carlson and I moved to Sweden in January 2011!

I am living in the city of Jönköping - a city about 3 1/2 hours SW of Stockholm in the NW part of the province of Småland. A beautiful city, Jönköping is located at the base of scenic Lake Vättern, Sweden's second largest lake.  

Jönkoping is large, but not overwhelming. With a population of about 60,000 (125,000 if you count the greater Jönköping area), it has the perks of city life with the added charm of the countryside nearby! It is also a university town, drawing students from all over the world.

I am now currently working with missionaries Karl and Masayo Andersson in their newer church plant - Bottnaryd Baptist Church - in Bottnaryd, Sweden, a town of a little more than 700 people about 15 miles west of Jönköping.

I keep busy with Bible club ministries for kids, neighborhood outreach, music ministry, women's ministry, writing ministry, etc.

I am very excited about being a part of this work!

So please pray for the ministries in Jönköping! Pray that the Light of the Gospel would shine into the hearts of the people in Sweden!

To God be the glory!
