THE CARLSSON FAMILY
Anders & Sara are the leaders of the base and they have 4 kids; Benjamin, Felicia, Elli and Josef.
Asseged, or Effi, is from Ethiopia. He has a big heart for the Bible, for preaching and listening to people. He works with DTS, administration and is also on the base leadership team. Effi is definitely the biggest quote machine on base, and spreads joy wherever he goes. Ask him why he has two names for a good story!
Joanna is from Sweden. She is an amazing story teller, has a big missionary heart and can connect with any child, no matter the language. She enjoys the outdoors and knows many hacks on how to make a recipe healthier. (Bean pancakes anyone?) On base she works with DTS, media, King's Kids and is on the base leadership team.
Martin is from Katrineholm in Sweden. He is the one to talk to when you want to book tickets for outreach, need to know how the base finances are going or if you need a lesson in Swedish history. He has been connected to the base for many years and will also be able to share statistics in a beautiful graph over what countries we have been to and had students from over the years. Martin is the head of administration on base.
Zac is from Minnesota, USA. He enjoys coffee, music, cooking, fishing and having conversations about anything from how to make your own cheese to WW2 history. On base you usually find him in the kitchen, hanging out in the sofas or playing chess with a friend. Zac is great at creating a sense of community and making people feel welcomed!
Joel is from Argentina, but he also has a big heart for Sweden. He leads the worship ministry and is also involved in the media work on base. He is the happiest with a guitar in his hands, on the football field or making BBQ. He invests his whole heart in what he does and is not afraid of hard work when something needs to be done, he is a great example of a servant heart.
Jakob is from Skillingeryd in Sweden. He loves people and wants to see them live at their fullest potential. Don't be surprised if you find him in a deep conversation with someone he met 5 minutes ago. He will be the one that keeps you updated on the latest Marvel movies and the one to talk to about your computer problems. If you want to make him happy, invite him for a kebab!
Meet Aniek from The Netherlands! She loves prayer, listens well, is a quick learner and loves doing things with her hands. Aniek is your friend when you need to organise something, anything from a big kids camp to finding beds for everyone when there is a big event. Her laughter is contagious and she is generous in sharing joy and wisdom with the people around her!
Lukas grew up in USA but is also a Swedish citizen. He has a big passion for sports and people, especially youth. He is good at asking the right questions and connects easily with people around him, making him a great discipler and evangelist. He has an eye for fashion and design, and will be the one noticing nice shoes and cars when you walk down the street.
Javidavish, Javi or JJ. A dear child has many names. He is from Venezuela but has lived many years in Spain. He loves music and is a part of the worship team on base. Javi also enjoys cooking and seeing people gather around a nice meal. He is great at seeing people around him and easily finds a way to bring encouragement and joy. And speaking of joy, when Javi starts laughing everyone will join him.
Nathalie is from Edsbyn in Sweden. She is great at enjoying life and making every place she goes feel like home for everyone. She wants to see people, especially youth with problems with mental health, meet Jesus and start living fully for Him.
