Elder Vagen March 20, 2017

In reviewing this blog, I realized I never entered Elder Vagen coming to our mission.  He arrived here from Norway!!  He is deaf and is a convert to the church of about 2 years.  He learned ASL which is a little different than Norwegian sign language.  He has a tremendous testimony and loves serving as a missionary.  His story of running into missionaries in Norway is a miracle.  The ASL missionaries in Norway began teaching him ASL so they could communicate and teach him the gospel.  He bore his testimony this last zone conference and we all felt we were int he presence of a spiritual giant.  His companion is ASL and they serve in the ASL branch in Phoenix doing a tremendous job there.  We are so grateful to have Elder Vagen with us!!

Elder England is on the right who is hearing but is one of our ASL missionaries. Elder Gubler is on the left and he also is one of our ASL missionaries. They were very helpful in translating for Pres. Robinson.
