Interested in hearing stories about church history, I was surprised to learn some surprising Karvonen family history. My Minneapolis cousin informed me that our family tree included pastors in Finland as far back as the 1600s. This was news to me. This line of pastors were from a north central Finnish community called Pudasjarvi. They traveled to Uppsala, Sweden to attend the seminary.
Here are my four kids outside one of the campus buildings at Uppsala, University.
