Need Greaters

El Crucero

Michelle Sun, 01/05/2014 - 00:06

El Crucero. We arrived on a school bus stuffed full of witnesses who were all riding back from the convention together. The town of El Crucero is about 30 minutes away from the outskirts of Managua. It's far enough away so we feel safe here. The town is quite small. I think there are technically a lot of people who live in the town, but there really isn't much of anything available here as far as stores, restaurants, etc...

Nicaragua Life

Wow, After all this time. All this planning, i can't believe we actually accomplished this! It's really pretty amazing! We arrived safely into San Jose, Costa Rica and our friend Dan arranged for us to have a place to stay with some friends in the english congregation down there. The past week getting ready to leave had been very exhausting so we just spent a day trying to relax and recover and it was welcome! Costa Rica is so beautiful! Around 12:30 we decided to walk to a nearby mall to get some lunch. It was a bit of a walk ( and our first day completely without transportation!

Bye Bye John & Jeanna, Hello Mike & Jared

The time has come to say goodbye to John and Jeanna. Wahhh! We had such a great time with them. They really changed the dynamics of this trip. I hope they enjoyed coming as much as we enjoyed having them! We brought them up to the airport in Managua and said our goodbyes... then we waited for Mike’s plane to arrive. It took quite a while but after they were sent off and Mike landed we jumped in a bus heading back to Granada to meet Jared. It was so nice to see him again! We got the scoop on Las Salinas (the town where he lives) and Granada.

Special Assembly Day - Costa Rica English

Michelle Mon, 10/16/2006 - 16:52

The special assembly day was so nice! We got to meet brothers from the english congregations and groups all over Costa Rica. It was very similar to Mexico's english assemblies in that there is this apparent zeal and excitement for the ministry. Everyone there has a specific goal in mind and they're all just so eager to accomplish their ministry.

It was a very encouraging assembly and we had a speaker from the Costa Rica Bethel branch. A brother named Will Teasdale gave some really GREAT talks. When John, Jeanna, Paola and I left the assembly, we were totally pumped up!

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!

COSTA RICA and PANAMA!

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.

I'm a Flyin Foo again!

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!
