Baptisms, Missionaries and Meetings

Victor's baptism in the Sea was on Saturday, June 2nd. Elder Wilderspin is performing the ordinance as Elders Jensen and Nicholls witness.

Elder Nicholls is contemplating something.

It looks like he decided to take a swim back to shore!

He's been wanting to get wet for quite a while now.

 Great young men all!

Victor with the two elders that taught him, Jensen and Nicholls.

Rosie brought beautiful Alexis to the baptism.

Both are perfect in the sight of God.

Elder Boutoille of the 70 came to visit our District Conference.  Our Elder Neville is also from France and a good friend to the Boutoille family.

Pictured here with Elder Boutoille and Elder Neville are Elder Wilderspin and Valentin.

We have so many great elders, including Valentin who just cut his long, long hair.  We love them all!!

Are these Hughs brothers cute or what?  They reminded me of Aaron and Bryan after a LONG Sacrament Meeting!  So naughty and just like our twins!

It is so funny that we had to come to Cyprus for Virgil to find his cousin on the Nielson side, Sister Niebuhr.

May birthdays.

Elder Gibbons and Wilderspin are two fantastic missionaries!

Our whole zone minus two senior couples, Smiths and us, who were taking the pictures.

Zone Leaders Elders Gibbons and Radnoti.

We took our district for Fish and Chips in Dekaylia.

    1. Karen, We found out yesterday that your son and Elder Jensen are staying in Larnaca for another transfer! We are so happy. They have quite a few baptisms coming up, so this is will be perfectly wonderful!

    1. Thanks Julie and Joe. Will you let me know if you get this message? I can't figure out how you might get it unless you get back on this same comment section. Thanks, Lucy

    2. This is actually Derek who posted this comment.

    3. Thanks Derek for the comments. So does my reply back to you come to your e-mail or how do you get it? And do you have to have a blog to make a comment? If so, what is your blog name? I was also wondering how your son Mark is doing? Is he old enough to go on a mission yet? Where ever he serves, his amazing talent on the piano will be totally utilized.

  3. A cousin on the Nelson side how did you ever figure that out?

  4. Joe & Julie actually did look at your blog but Derek posted his commentfirst You guys look like you are having so much fun. We love your pictures
