SERVICE (Eparisea)

This week we had the opportunity to go and do service with our missionaries.  We were able to go to a place - similar to Deseret Industries - and bag up gift bags for children and sort clothing.  WE spent 3 hours and will go back next week.  The people were so appreciative.  Very humbling to see what was available and to know that we were helping people not only here in Cyprus but also in other countries where they send items to (Nigeria and others).

We started the day out at McDonald's.  The missionaries love McDonald's and to be honest it isn't bad.  Actually better than in the states (or have we just been gone too long???)

These are our cute sisters:  Sis. Hall, Sis Dealy and Sis. Huby

The Elders sorted clothes.  They worked so fast that the lady in charge told them to slow down.
Elder Boyce, Elder Deighton, Elder Reeves and Elder Jacobsen (aka Bill)

This is in front of the warehouse were we spent the morning.  They really like 60's pop art here.

We accomplished something major today - hooked up the TV through our laptop.  We don't have cable or anything but now we can watch on something bigger then the 10 inch screen - and we did it ourselves!!

We had our Branch Christmas party on Saturday night.  Had a pretty good turn out of around 35 (13 non-members) which we felt good about considering it had rained ALL day and was still raining when we finished.
The sister on the right is from Latvia and just moved to Nicosia.  Her name is Zena.

This is Brother Dixon, long time member from England.  The Sisters are talking to an investigator.  He speaks only Greek.

Sister Huby and Sister Dealy.  Sister Dealy's brother served here 3 years and baptized some of our members.  The sister on the right is Sis. Cristina from Romania.

Brother Wood from North Nicosia (Turkey side) and our investigators from China.
The Elders are reading the Christmas story from Luke - Elder Boyce and Elder Deighton.

It was a fun party and everyone had a good time.  It really helped to get us in the Christmas Spirit. We watched the new video from the Church - The Gift.  Loved it!!
