Unwelcome Guests

Michelle Sat, 10/14/2006 - 13:42

Last night Paola and I were up reaally stinkin late...

We have had comfortable sleeping arrangements, though the mattress was just sitting on the floor in the living room. But one thing to remember about these Central American countries (and Mexico) Is that the houses are rarely sealed well. And sometimes not at all. So there are often many critter visitors.

Boquete, Panama

Ok, so let me tell you a little about our time in Boquete! A missionary couple, David and Julie Reynolds from Sacramento, CA have been serving in Panama for the last 5 years. They were SO great! They invited us to stay with them in the missionary home, which we did. Flopped a mattress on the floor in the living room... OK with me! It's better than having grout lines in my face like my "sleeping on tile" experience in Changinola. Bah!

Oh my goodness... I can´t believe how long its been since I was able to write here. Sorry for not being able to keep in touch very well.... I was really surprised because when we arrived into San Jose, we went straight to the Bethel and it was far away from anything touristy so there are no internet cafes or anything nearby. So far we have had an absolutely FANTASTIC trip. I´m keeping record of everything and will write more details soon.

This crazy obsession with traveling through Central America started last year, April or so of 2006. When Amber, Curtis, Nadja, Shelley, Kyle, Josh, Ashley, Jared and I ventured through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. It was one of the best times of my life! It was fun, adventerous, and the entire time we were surrounded by beautiful brothers and sisters that we met in all the different towns.

Getting Ready

Michelle Tue, 10/03/2006 - 20:05

Getting ready for this trip has been fun.... very stressful... but exciting. Who leaves for a month long trip with only 6 days notice?? hehe.. But that's quite alright. At least I'm going. It's sad too because I feel like I have to say goodbye to everyone... even though I know I'll be back in just 30 days. But I know that everyone wants to see us and wish us a nice trip before we take off, so it's been nice.

Deliverance Is At Hand! August 2006 District Convention

Michelle Thu, 09/07/2006 - 13:28

Ok so here's the story.... bit by bit. First, August 16th we left for Mexico City to go to the District Convention in the state of Queretaro, Mexico. For the middle of August I thought it would be pretty warm there - and it was, in the sun... but on a cloudy day or at night it was a tid bit CHILLY! As soon as we got there we went to Bethel and met up with some friends German and Abner and we were invited to dinner at Bethel. Later we went into Mexico City at night to do some sightseeing. It was very beautiful and I had another successful and safe trip into the city with no problem!

Carry Me Back to Ole Virginny

Hi Everyone,

I'm just writing to let you know that I'll be back in Virginia this coming week.... I'll be staying at Charles Creech's house with some friends so, if you want to get in touch with me, call me there :o) OK? I'd love to see you, have lunch with you, bring you shopping with me, or any of that stuff. (WARNING: I'm going into SUSHI OVERDRIVE MODE at 10:55pm Tuesday night.) SEE YOU IN THE STATES!


Summer in Cancun

Michelle Tue, 07/04/2006 - 12:09

I never, ever, in my life, thought I'd see the day when I welcomed a cold shower. I'm such a baby. The second cold water touches my skin, instantaneously every pore closes up, every inch is covered in goose bumps, and I go into a mild shock, gasping for air....

Isla Mujeres Experiences

Isla Mujeres Map
Michelle Mon, 05/15/2006 - 14:04

Having the blessing of a literature display table in the park in the center of downtown Isla Mujeres has enabled many people from a wide range of language groups the opportunity to learn the truth about Jehovah in their native tongue. Some become very excited and begin to tell others about what they have found. As the following experience demonstrates, the results are unimaginable.

Well, this is a long time in coming but finally I have the story for all of you. The Memorial, April 12th 6:45pm - Cancun, Mexico English Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. What a success! There was 143 in attendance at our Kingdom Hall (though only 40 publishers). I was able to invite around 10-15 people, and 8 of them came. 4 Bible studies, 1 husband of a bible study, and 3 children.
