“The two of them (Paul and Barnabas), sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and from there to Cyprus.  When they arrived at Salamis, they proclaimed the word of God in the Jewish synagogues.  John was with them as there helper.” Acts 13:4,5

I(DeAnn) just posted the pics from our trip to Salamis on flickr.  We went there on the same day we went to Famagusta. I have to say that of all the places I’ve been so far on Cyprus, Salamis is my favorite.  I couldn’t get over the fact that Paul had preached the Gospel there.  It is so uncommercialized and practically empty that it was possible to imagine what it was like almost 2000 years ago.  Please go here and read more about it.  It has an interesting history.

    The Olympics — C & D, you must be having fun with the friendly rivalries in your community over the Games. Have you had viewing parties? Any events you dropped everything to watch (other than soccer, of course)?

    Despite awful timing/coinciding of events on the part of Russia/Georgia, it’s been nice to have some happy, positive, peaceful news from the world these past 2 weeks.

    I’ve been meaning to write to tell you that I saw a sign up at a local park a few weeks back, “no soccer or football” with the Spanish translation printed next to it, “no futbol o futbol americano”. Seems our US sports always need a little translation back to the names understood by the entire rest of the world… I’ll try to remember to take a picture next time!
