Elder Kroll and Krishna Poudel witnessed the baptism of Rajesh Bogati in Cyprus. Elder Cook had the opportunity to baptise this wonderful elect child of God. When Elder Cook sent these photographs through, he put at the bottom of the email that Elder King was responsible for finding our brother Rajesh. In the Greece Athens Mission we work as a team.

We took a trip to Meteora . Sister Bell, bottom left picture is at the Room of Skulls. These are the remains of monks who had lived in the monastery. It rained so heavily I don't have any other pictures to display. The other pictures are taken in Athens and on Mars Hill .
The train took us on a tour through the most important ancient sites and monuments of the Athens Centre. Some of those sites were Hadrian's Arch built in 131 AD. The Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Ancient Agora and of course Aeropagus ( Mars Hill) and the Parthenon.
The senior couples from Cyprus joined with those in Greece . It was the first time that some had met having only ever spoken on the phone. Elder Bell top left is sharing with us some of the delights in store. we are all just happy to be together.

Oh I wish you could all be with us at moments like these. The miracle of it all. They come with authority, they speak a new tongue, they desire to share with others the beauty of the Gospel. Such heavenly times never to be forgotten.
