Päivö Tarjamo Brooklyn 2008
7th Finglish trip September 2008 #27
Päivö Tarjamo began his work as a pastor to Finnish immigrants in 1969 in Malmö, Sweden, during a period of active Finnish migration to Sweden. He worked in Finntown, Brooklyn as the last Finnish-speaking pastor of the Gloria Dei congregation (1987-1992) and went on from there to Dallas.
He describes his years in Dallas with an anecdote noting that there were no funerals, because the members of his congregation were so young. Tarjamo was a few years in retirement in Finland before being invited to serve in the Finnish congregation in Manhattan.
