Conversion Story of Bodild Hansen Jensen

Contributor: dolphin1973 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Bodild Clausen lived in Denmark about 1850 with her husband, Jens Peter Jensen and three children. They lived on a farm with a mill that belonged to her father-in-law, Jens Jorgensen. One night in about 1859 her husband came home and said he had to go to the coast with his father early the next morning to sell a load of flour. Bertha got up early the next day to fix them breakfast and lunches for the journey. When they left she got busy cleaning their home and forgot about the time. About noon she stopped to fix lunch. Just as she and the children were sitting down to eat there was a knock at the door. She went to the door and there stood two young men. Now her father-in-law was a county commissioner and he was used to giving orders. He had said that there were two strange men in town and no one was to talk to them. She heard them talking but she couldn't understand them. She knew she wasn't supposed to talk to them and she just wanted to get rid of them without hurting their feelings. Then they stopped talking and just looked at her. She knew she had to say something, but what? Then she noticed how thin they were and she asked if they had had a meal that day. One said they hadn't eaten in three days. All she said was, "Come in and eat with us." Four hours later they left and she was converted to the Gospel. When her husband came home she told him what had happened and asked him to talk to the missionaries. He said if he did, his father would kick them off the farm. She said she didn't know about him but she was going to be baptized. She was baptized on 4 April 1859 and her father-in-law forced them to leave. They got along well until winter when her husband, who was not used to working outside, got sick and died on January 5,1861. Bodild had no where to go, no family support and no money. A member family who lived a few days away invited her to come and stay with them. She and her little children walked to their new friends' carrying everything they owned on their backs. Later her father-in-law came to see her. He said if she would come back, he would take care of her and her children but she must stop going to church. She said the price was too high. He left but he did give her some money. With that money and some help from other church members Bodild and her children were able to come to America. She and her children joined a wagon train and walked most of the way to Salt Lake City. Upon their arrival in Salt Lake Bodild was able to obtain a wheel barrow which they loaded with their meager possessions and pushed to Logan. There she spent the rest of her life supporting her self by raising goats. Her daughter, Bertha Marie Jensed who had walked most of the long journey west grew up and married John Peter Fjeldsted they had a son named Peter Christian Felsted. Peter Christian's son was my father Harold Ney Felsted. Story told by William Ney Felsted,
