Mission to Cyprus

April 2000 - September 2001

Week of May 20, 2001

Ruins at Kourion.

"We took the sister Missionaries last week, and the Elders who are being transferred this week, to Kourion. If you are into Crusaders and Greek mythology, these are great places."

Baths at the sanctuary of Apollo.

"Kourion (or Curium in Latin) goes way back to Achaean colonists from Agos in the Peloponnese. The dates start about the 16th century B.C. and goes to
the mid-11th century B.C. The Egyptians even talk about. Ramses referred to it as one of the places in Cyprus which he wanted under his domination."

Mosaic in the House of the Gladiators.
House of Achilles. Sister Abrantes, Sister Taylor, and Sister Bowman.

"There a lot ruins everywhere on the plateau above the Sea. What a great setting as you walk through the ruins and can see the Mediterranean Sea below you."
