What a Mission!!!

 It's the little every day things that we love so much, like being with great young missionaries in our district, (Elders Brandenburg and Uhlig)
 and watching them grow. (Elders Clack and Sorg)
 Being one of four senior couples here on the island is always fun, 
 and we never tire of being together.

 Witnessing baptisms, even in another branch 
 and being a part of their Relief Society for the RS Birthday,

 Or in our own branch with the members we love so much!
it is all great.  Here is an after Sunday dinner in our flat shot,
at Zone Conference with the Assistants to the President.

 the sisters from Limassol with dresses a branch sister made for them. (Sisters Werner and McArthur)

 President and Sister Freestone at Zone Conference.  Out the window we saw lots of people lined up trying to get money out of the banks in Nicossia.  Even our account here in Larnaca is frozen.

 Back inside at the Zone Conference all is well as we celebrate Elder Clack and Konietz's birthdays.

 Another thing we love about our mission is how many different activities we have every week.  We got the seminary kids on the island together for a Super Seminary Saturday.
 Kali helps Marios put on the whole armor of God.
 Great youth!  Later that same day we got to go to the airport to meet another senior couple, the Rebers from St. George, Utah.

They were sent here to help with the work and take the place of the Smiths in Paphos who will be leaving, sadly.
 The Church auditors came to church today and over to our flat afterwards for dinner, Elder and Sister Madsen. 
 Great people!!
We can't imagine a better mission for us than right here in Cyprus!
