This past week was a busy one.  We started the week taking the young missionaries up to the Troodoos mountains.  Yes, they are real mountains with snow.  We had a great time and it was beautiful.

Of course there was a snow ball fight!

We found a 'flipper' if anyone is interested.

This is outside of Barnabus's church.  They are the tombs of some of his followers.

This is supposedly the tomb of Barnabus.  Barnabus was a Cypriat Jew who was from Cyprus and taught with the Apostle Paul.  He was stoned to death by his own people.

We drove over to the Turkey side of Cyprus.  These are some ruins at Salamis.  As you can see the wildflowers are in bloom.  They say by summer everything will be dead and brown

Can you see the boat in the arch way?  This was part of the aqueduct.

We had a wonderful day and can't wait to go back when the weather is better.

We had a mini transfer on Thursday and sent off 6 missionaries - 2 from Cyprus and 4 from Athens. We will miss them terribly but wish them the best on the next chapter of their lives.  More on that next week.
