Daniel is the translator for the Birch Church, which is the only church in Umeå that provides “live” translations from Swedish to English from the pulpit. He does an excellent job. Doing mission work here is different because it is in a University city of intellectual people. The missionary work is unique due to the fact that most of the “physical needs” here are met. The Swedish culture is very reserved.
We asked Daniel to further explain from his point of view about the culture and he was very helpful in that area.We had the opportunity to put the sewing ministry to work by mending some items for him. Besides translating he is part of the “technical team” which sets up the audio and visual portion for the recording of each service.
