Every Day Brings Something New and Exciting

We went on a walk through Larnaca with the Georgievas and found this amazing vine growing in an old barrel with the roots wrapped tightly around each other.  Yes, those are it's roots!

This was our last Sunday with Marvellous before he flew home to Nigeria on Friday.  We hope he comes back while we are still here, but if not, he will serve as a wonderful missionary for the Lord after he has been a convert for a year in September. We are so sad to see him leave us.

 We enjoy feeding the members of our branch whenever we get a chance.  We love them all so much!

 We always have plenty of volunteers for clean up afterwards.

 Some like to exercise on the balcony after dinner,

 or visit,

 Our branch is full of beautiful African members!

We took a small bus to Nicosia for a fireside with a General Authority--taken by me from the back of the bus.

A nice lady in the park told me I was lucky to have such a very handsome, beautiful husband.  I am.

Joy is one of the investigators we are teaching right now.  We hope to see her baptized at the end of this month.

I was trying to get a close up on these flamingo, but it was getting dark fast, so I turned a little to the left

and got a picture of the beautiful Cyprus sunset instead.  What a truly magical place we get to serve our mission. Life is good and we are so incredibly blessed of the Lord every day.
