Sunnmøre – where many missionary colleagues come from たくさんの宣教師の故郷

November 11-18 I flew to Ålesund for meetings near by. The weather was wonderful, and I enjoyed looking down on the snow-covered mountains below. Less snow as we came close to the coast.

On my way back I took pictures of Ålesund and the surrounding islands.

Ålesund’s airport is on an island. We get there by a tunnel under the sea. The place were I was to preach was about one hour’s drive from the airport.

This region is called Sunnmøre. Very many missionaries come from this region. I met some of the missionaries to Japan and their families.

The sister and brother of another missionary (I.V.) invited me for dinner after the Sunday service. They live on a farm. In the village the church was situated by the sea, because people went to church by boat in the old days. There was an old church pier.

We went for a little drive. The fiord in the picture below, Storfjorden,  turns right and continues for several kilometers. Geirangerfjorden (Unesco World Heritage  世界遺産) is another fiord that is connected to Storfjorden in the far end.

The man who built the chapel at Hiruzen Bibel Camp in Japan, Hans Lillevik, lived in the little town across the fiord (picture below): Sykkylven.
