Hello All, Just a few new pictures to post. First is Rick and I in front of Le Castella near Crotone. We stopped there with friends on our way to Maxi Conference.
Next comes Typical Sicilian Puppets- these are at Taormina.
Rick contemplating the replacement car we may want to buy when we get home.
Last, Matera, a city near Taranto that we stopped to see on the way home from the Maxi Conference. Matera is where Mel Gibson filmed "The Passion of Christ".
It has been a tiring week with the mission auditor here for 3 days (whew- we passed so they are not going to fire us), packing tons of stuff to be delivered to the other side of the mission, starting to pack up the office, sorting, labeling, tote and carrying (don't remember those in the job description). All is good and we work with wonderful people!! Love sharing the gospel because it makes us all better..

OOPS!! Ok so I forgot I already uploaded one. Well, these were taken at Siracusa. Rick is in front of the Ear of Dionysius (huge cave, Good echo sound inside, used as a prison and they could hear their enemies talking). The Greek Theater, 3rd century BC. A stage being built on it for performances this summer, which they do every year.
Yesterday President and Sister Toronto's belongings were boxed up and shipped home. It is getting close to the end for the Catania Mission as well as for President and Sister Toronto. We are very busy getting things wrapped up. We had Zone Leader Council last week and it is always terrific being with the wonderful missionaries. 8 Baptisms in May.
