These are the elders we have now in Larnaka:  Elder Dixon and Elder Deighton.  Elder Deighton served with us in Nicosia and is a sweet, humble missionary.  Has the best British accent!   We are glad to be working with him again.

The bike saga continues.  Elder Dixon is putting into practice the training he received from the mission president on bike maintenance.

There was a dance festival down at the seaside.  These dancers are in traditional Cypriat dress.

you can't tell but we are actually standing in the Mediterranean Sea.  Got about up to our hips but alas, no swim suits to go in much further.  :(

The highlight of the week was another baptism of an 8 year old Filipino girl, Ayia.  She got out in the water and freaked out - probably because it was a little rough that day.  She wouldn't let the elders put her under the water.  After a good 15 minutes the 3 elders said a prayer out there in the water and then everything fell into place.  She was baptized and happy as a clam.  It was a very tender moment - and evidence of a loving Heavenly Father who hears and answers prayers.

I loved listening to the Women's Broadcast.  Pres. Uchtdorf's talk was amazing.  If you haven't listened yet you won't want to miss it.  How grateful we are for general conference coming up and for our leaders.
