Echoes from the mission field of Norway

Welcome to Brayden’s Blog

Hi, I am Brayden. I’m doing this blog so people will think that it’s cool how I’m going to Norway and so that they would follow me and pray for my family so that we can be safe and stuff. I’m only 8 and I’m going to be a missionary. A missionary is a person who goes around the world and tells people about God and Jesus.

I love NBA basketball and Minecraft. I’m going to be homeschooled for 3rd grade. I’m a little sad to move to Norway because I’m going to miss my friends, but also very happy because I want to see how fun it is there and I can make new friends. I hope when I get to Norway I will love it. It is awesome how there are berries everywhere! Literally everywhere!

    Great post, Brayden! I see there’s a young writer in the family. Just like Dad, huh? :-)

  8. I’m sure you’re going to love Norway, Brayden. And even more, you will LOVE being home schooled. My two sons were home schooled most of their lives, and they can tell you what a great experience it is. You can study so many more things that what you would learn in a normal classroom! And I can’t think of better teachers than your two parents.

    I will be praying for you and all your family and asking God not only to keep you safe but also to help you make a difference in the lives of many people who currently don’t know Jesus or aren’t living wholeheartedly for Him.

    Keep up your writing! I will be eager to hear all about your new adventure.

  9. Looking forward to your next blog, Brayden! Now that you are in Norway, I am excited to hear all about your first experiences! Miss you so much!

  14. Hi Brayden!
