Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua - July 28, 2013

Jean and Annette writing letters
We are just two weeks away from Pioneer School and one month until we have our convention in San Salvador. We can't believe how quickly time is going by.

We have had quite a lot of rainy weather in the past couple of weeks which has meant a few changes to our witnessing. We have spent some time writing letters as well as working closer to home rather than going to Haulover or Raitipura. I think our calls and studies out in these areas will think that we have forgotten them! Hopefully, this coming week will be a little better.

We have a few visitors here this week which has been nice because we've had some pretty big service groups. There are two sisters visiting from the US - Neema and Malacha (Malli) as well a the Hunter family that are serving in San Juan del Sur. Pat and Byron are happy to have a couple of brothers around to help with meeting parts - it gives them a little bit of a break. Paul, Marie Claire and their son Kieran are here until Monday and then they will head back to the sun and surf of San Juan but the girls will be with us for a month. The Hunters also have a blog which you can read at

On the way home from service we did a little "foraging" for ripe mangoes. There are a couple of huge mango trees out on Bush road that don't belong to anyone and so we filled up our bags with some ripe fruit. Pancho was really happy because our mango tree is finished and we have been giving him bananas again which he suddenly doesn't like too much!

Annette has left for Bluefields to attend the Miskito language course. After the course she will come back to Pearl Lagoon for a couple of weeks and then after the convention in San Salvador she will be heading home to Mexico for a few months of work. She hopes to return to Pearl Lagoon in early January 2014.
