Well, the big news for us is that we are being transferred.  I know - we didn't think senior couples got transferred either.  But we are transferring to the city of Larnaca.  It is on the coast about 45 minutes from Nicosia.  WE are excited about the new area but sad to be leaving our branch with so many dear members,  We will be very busy there with all the same responsibilities we have now plus teaching seminary, English classes and taking care of the Mission President's car, picking up and dropping off at the airport (which is in Larnaca) and a whole bunch of other things.  I just keep telling myself that busy is good!!!  Right????

Woke up Sunday morning and it was bright and sunny.  Five hours later we came home from church to this:

We have been having daily rainstorms.  I never would have guessed they received so much rain here. The missionaries from England feel right at home!

WE had zone conference on Friday and it was really good.  I had to give a tip to the missionaries.  I borrowed one from Dawna Drake and taught them the lifeskill of being happy where you are - or Bloom where you are planted!  I even led them in the song:  If you're happy and you know it . . .  Yes, I sang in front of everyone, not pretty!  It is amazing to see the growth and development in the missionaries over the past 4 (has it only been 4??) months that we have been here.  

Happy Birthday Sis. East, Elder Deighton & Elder Martinez!!

These are the sisters assigned to Nicosia:  Sis. Mueller (England) and Sis. East (Wales)

Our Elders:  Elder Valesquez (Finland) and Elder Martinez (Spain)

The Branch had a Valentines Party to celebrate the day.

Today at church we had 4 investigators and 2 less-actives.  We are excited to see that the work is possibly moving forward.  Worried that we so many of our missionaries are finishing up and heading home without replacements.  Please come join us!!!
