Back in Nicaragua after Pioneer School and Leah's Wedding

Pioneer School 2009!!! In Aug. we went back to the U.S. for pioneer school. It was so great. Our instructors were excellent teachers, “the gold standard,” as some might say (imagine with Bro. Velucci's voice) and our classmates really set the bar high for good preparation and comments. Being...

My Favorite Moment in Rural Territory

My Favorite Moment in Rural Territory: We’ve begun working our rural territory as a congregation more often. We pile on the bus, or sometimes in a brother’s truck and head out for a whole day of preaching. We are on foot most of the day. It is great. The young brothers and sisters really...

New happenings

The Lindalas Last weekend we had a missionary couple stay with us. We had a great time. We warned them that our place was small. “It'll be kind of like sharing a largish hotel room,” Shane told them. Everything went fine. They have been here 6 years in Matagalpa where we go for assemblies and...

We were preaching in a meteor crater

We've been preaching in a meteor crater and we didn't even know it! It's true. You can see it on Google Earth. There is a large population that lives in the "Valley of Pantasma." And to us it always just looked like a normal valley. But some photos on from space show it is actually a huge old...

Salvation and Suffering

(I chose the title because it sounds epic. Not because it has any direct relation to what's been going on with us.) Greetings to everyone. We hope that everyone is enduring the North American winter. Firstly we would like to introduce a road sign which, we believe, should be in every road...

Evelyn and Roses

Evelyn: We have a great new study. The best kind, the kind that comes to you. Parents send their kids to sell things from door to door. Kind of a shame because they should be in school. One girl, Evelyn, sells us tortillas (Sad confession: we don't actually eat the tortillas. The...

Our Kingdom Hall

Some have been asking about pictures of our KH and so we thought we would oblige. (I included the icecream man in this one, evidently people buy ice cream at 8:30 on a Sunday morning? :)This is a picture of our Sunday meeting. This day we had around 140 in attendance, again this is with 65ish...
