Conversion Story of Bodild Hansen Jensen

Contributor: Turpinca 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,

Life timeline of Artie Knight Van Orden

Artie Knight Van Orden was born on 26 May 1893
Artie Knight Van Orden was 11 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Artie Knight Van Orden was 21 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Artie Knight Van Orden was 35 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Artie Knight Van Orden was 46 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Artie Knight Van Orden was 49 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Artie Knight Van Orden died on 8 Oct 1952 at the age of 59
