That question brings back a lot of memories. So let me see... how are we doing...
We're actually doing ok. Our papers finally arrived from Uganda so we're OFFICIAL in Zacatecas now. And tomorrow was our return ticket. I was supposed to do our check in online now...
And now it's going. I can hear it taking off... No flight back for a year now!
Anyway, the field is going great! Chris found a new study for me. She lived in the States for a long time and went to the KH a couple of times there but never really studied although she read the whole teach book in Spanish. So in one of our field day asking "Alguien en la casa habla ingles?", she came out and explained everything to Chris, including that a couple of days before brothers from the Spanish Congregation visited but she hid because, as she said it, "my family is catholic and I don't want to fight with them".
Fair enough... but then she told Chris that because he knocked again, she felt like Jehovah was telling her something. And now she's been studying for 2 weeks and she already came to the Kingdom Hall on Sunday and loved it. Now for her to come to the Kingdom Hall she has to swap her shift at the hotel where she works with another colleague so that she can attend the meeting. It worked out last Sunday so now she's hoping Jehovah will make it work again.
So funny enough, last Sunday, we had three interested ones at the meeting, which was great. One of them studies with Patrick (Service Overseer) in Starbucks every week and has really good and deep questions.
And another is a girl who was going to the Spanish congregation because one of her relative is studying, but she wasn't studying and her English is really good.
So we're having really good results considering that as a congregation, we're only 6 months old.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, Cedie and Annie had to leave to return to their homes. It was really sad but I'm sure Jehovah will bless them wherever they are. Now we're waiting for Kentucky girls to come back. Can't wait honestly. We miss them a lot. I miss them a lot.
Not long for them now. And their parents are coming to visit with them.
So it will be nice to meet them and to show them how all crazy we are.
And we're waiting for my parents in exactly a month from today. And that's going to be lots of fun. And they're bringing me a lot of Italian goodies so... and we're going to PV when they come. I miss the sea sooooo much you can't even imagine. And then Assembly time. And then back home... So looking forward to that!
That's all for now!!!
