Senior Couples Mission "Adventure" - Torino

First -
Special thanks to Anziano and Sorella Hall
for researching and arranging all the events and accommodations 
for this Senior Couples Mission Adventure.
Adventure it was!

Wednesday, May 9th, we checked in to our lovely hotel
and walked to the Museo Egizio.
This is rated the BEST Egyptian museum
in the world!
We figuratively (and literally) found
ourselves lost in a world of long ago.
Afterwards we trekked to the Mole Antonelliana,
which is the highest masonry building in Italy.
We rode the elevator to the top for a lovely panoramic view.

On May 10th many took the opportunity in the morning to go
to a local duomo to see the Shroud of Turin
and Roman ruins.
Afterwards we drove to Torre Pelice and Angrona 
to see the Rock of Prophecy where President Snow
dedicated Italy for missionary work.  
We walked in the mountains to a leaning rock
cave church where the Waldensians met to
secretly live their religion.  
The Waldensians were a persecuted people who
fought for their religious rights.
A short fireside was held before we left for dinner.

On May 11th we enjoyed walking through
Venaria Reale, Italy's "Little Versailles"
and took note of the long-ago lifestyle of the "rich and famous".

Thank you for a wonderful time!
(Should I mention a couple gelato stops?  Of course!)
