“The first Servant Teachers training course has been held in Sweden beginning of november. Christina, Anita and myself, from Norway, together with the most experienced S.T.s in Sweden held the course outside Stockholm, and were able to get six new Servant-Teachers trained. That was high time, since several new clubs are about being started. There are four Clubs at present in the area, and four additional clubs may be a reality by the new year. We had opportunity to visit two Clubs in the area, which was a nice experience, since they really work well”.
