ACTS 16:9,10: And during the night a vision appeared to Paul: a certain Mac‧e‧do′ni‧an man was standing and entreating him and saying: “Step over into Mac‧e‧do′ni‧a and help us.” Now as soon as he had seen the vision, we sought to go forth into Mac‧e‧do′ni‧a, drawing the conclusion that God had summoned us to declare the good news to them.

Jamaica Bethel...and Other Neat Things

   Thanks to Jehovah we have returned safe and sound to Guasave. While we are happy to be reunited with the friends here and to see the progress made (the congregation has a new unbaptized publisher since we left!) we are remembering fondly the trip back home. We have been thinking about the warmth shown to us, the interest many expressed in the work here in Mexico and the visits to places near and far. Here are some interesting things we did during our trip...

  We visited the Branch Office in Old Harbour, Jamaica. The Jamaica Bethel Branch supports the work in Jamaica and Cayman Islands. The preaching work is being conducted in those countries in the English, Chinese, Hindi, Sign, Spanish, and Tagalog languages by over 12,000 of our brothers and sisters.

    We also got to visit old friends and family as we traveled to North Carolina, Georgia and in my best Alicia Keys voice.....Nuuuuuu Yaaawk. Although I didn't take a tour, I got to take photos of  "The Mother Ship"

"Wanna Buy a  Bridge?"

I wanted to see the sign one more time before it goes away

    We traveled many miles by plane and auto but our journey has led us back here to Guasave. We returned to our congregation to find that the Mexico Branch has encouraged all publishers in the country to set a prayerful goal of helping at least one of our Bible Students to progress to the point of being an Unbaptized Publisher by the end of the service year; an auspicious goal indeed! We reason that this would not be asked without the direction of the Holy Spirit so Jehovah must have great things in store for the work here south of the border. So, as mentioned in our April 2013 study edition, there is plenty of work to do if we offer ourselves willingly!

  1. Hola mis amigos! Greetings from your sister in the Central/Fingerlakes area of New York. :)

    I'm loving your blog posts. I think they're so very encouraging and they're making me really miss Mexico! I was in Guadalajara for three weeks last spring and loved it. Right now I'm making plans and getting everything in order to return to Mexico at the end of this year or very early into 2014. I can't wait! Looking forward to reading more posts and updates from your family.

    Abrazos y Besos! :)
