After landing in America, the three Anderson couples persevered through the immigration process and then the train trip to Kansas City; both were a breeze compared to their North Atlantic crossing. The land that Svan Anderson had homesteaded a year earlier was southwest of Kansas City in the Flint Hills region. There were no wagons traveling that direction, so the three couples walked one hundred miles out of Kansas City, carrying their few belongings. When they finally arrived to walk on the ground of their homestead, Svan and his family held a little service thanking God for bringing them to America.
