Here's some of Shalisha's letter:
I have made it to Greenland safe and sound. I have now been in four counties belonging to Europe - Norway, Sweden, Denmard, and Greenland. Greenland being a part of Denmark doesn't count. :)
So Greenland for the the first couple of days perspective is very much like North American countries. People are wam and friendly in some situations , other times they just walk right past you.
There is not very much wild life to be seen in Aasiaat. Indeed the only animals I have seen so far are sled dogs and crows. Oh, should I count the seal meat and fish the fishers sell down by the docks?
After our morning of devotion time and worship, the eight of us took to the streets and explored the city for the afternoon. We kept warm by walking, but that didn't stop us from going to the cafe and getting some hot chocolate. Yum! Yum!
The sky is very beautful. The sun does not come up for another couple days. I think the 12th is the first day we can see the sun from the top of the hill. It is a special day for the people in Aasiaat. I also saw an iceburg today! I am not sure if it is the first time I have seen one in real life, but the first time I can remember, so yea!
I had the opportunity and privilege to give my testimony in front of 300 to 400 people. Anna took pictures. Maybe sometime I can put it on facebook.
So thankful for the warm boots!
Tell everyone I say hello and miss them.
All my love,
Shalisha's address in Greenland is:
Mission Husset (WO)
Box 136 3950 Aasiaat
She will be at this church mission for another week or so and then will go to another two cities in Greenland. They will be in Greenland until the end March.
If you want to write to Shalisha, it might be better to send her a message on facebook. If you want to send her a gift to help with expenses send it to my address made out to Shalisha. 10946 Ky Hwy 476, Hazard, Ky 41701. I will put it in her account here in Hazard. She has a debit card. (The bank in Hazard knows she's there, and she has used it a few times.)
