Today we got a new District President for Cyprus, President Mario Georgieva, our Bulgarian friend. He helped translate The Book of Mormon into Bulgarian several years ago and will be a great leader for the Church in Cyprus.
He and his wife Rumi have been good friends to us. They bore wonderful testimonies of the gospel today as they spoke at the conference.
|Their daughters, Eva and Kali, are two of my seminary girls.|
About 138 people attended the conference today. Sonia from India has become one of those great friends.
President and Sister Kosifou are going home to England after being here for ten years. We are already missing them.
Last week we took these two fine elders, Koponen and Bernskov, out for lunch at Traditional English Fish & Chips where we surprised them by having President and Sister Freestone sitting at the table as we walked up.
President Freestone insisted on paying for everyone--plus bought delicious ice cream treats afterward at New York Sweets. The Freestones always brighten our lives and help inspire and motivate all the missionaries in Greece and Cyprus. How can we not love such a couple?
We love this sweet Nigerian member, Antonia, and teach one of her roommates with a sweet little daughter,
We have lots of fun experiences with the other senior couples, and
we will miss these wonderful people, the friends we have made and the experiences we shall never forget.
What an amazing ride it has been! Memories we will cherish for years to come.
Our hearts are so full. We will never forget.
We love this amazing mission in Cyprus! Thanks for viewing, reading and commenting! Your support has meant so much to us over the past 17 months.
