Team Putte Wins!

by John Poysti - Director

The winner of this year’s Körslaget (Sweden’s version of “Clash of the Choirs”) was decided last Saturday night with Team Putte receiving the most votes. The Vetlanda-based choir led by Putte Nelsson won over the nationwide audience with a rousing performance and their sparkling personality. Their many hours of rehearsals and travel back and forth to Stockholm were rewarded with a prize of a half million Swedish kronor to be distributed to the charity of their choice.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will remember that the Team Putte choir visited Holsby a few weeks ago to rehearse their next performance and to film an introduction to the show. It gave Holsby some nation-wide exposure, for which we were very grateful. But, because of time constraints in the filming of the introduction, the choir was not able to go through the ropes course and the other adventure activities and initiatives. So, we are inviting the choir to come back in the spring as our guests when we re-open the ropes course. It will be a good opportunity to further connect with our community and our latest celebrity heroes!

About John Poysti - Director

Life is good, because God is good! I can’t think of anything more fulfilling in life than to observe God transforming people more and more into the likeness of Christ, and as a result being transformed yourself – that is kingdom living at its very best. Holsby has provided me with a unique opportunity to invest in the youth of this generation as I draw on a lifetime of God’s grace and mercy with which He has blessed me. My life is further enriched by some key relationships. Christine is my best friend and faithful companion in life. And we have three beautiful daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law and four fantastic grandsons who bring us more joy than we could ever deserve. Currently, I find relaxation through reading theological blogs, riding my mountain bike on forest trails, keeping my woodshed stocked and tidy, and picking or gathering whatever is edible in the forests around Holsby.
