So I just wanted to give a quick update to my former post "Rural Rant."  I told you guys I have some new return visits out there.  Well, we just did rural again last Sunday, and it was a hit!  I was able to call my return visits ahead of time and prepare them for the visit, and they were all waiting for me; it was great!

The best visit was this pair of sisters-in-law named Angelica and Ligia.  They had their patio set up with chairs, their Bible and tracts out, and as soon as we came told us, "We've been waiting for you!  We thought maybe you forgot about us today!"  They sat us down and gave us fresco and we had a great chat.  We explained the who is Jehovah and Jesus using Psalms 83:18 and Luke 1:31,32 and then explained their roles for the Memorial invitation.  After our conversation they told me they were really happy with our visit because no one had ever explained that information to them before about Jehovah and Jesus.  Ligia told me she cleans the house of some older Belgian nuns, and she told them she was studying with Jehovah's Witnesses.  Get this....they encouraged her to continue with her study acknowledging that we are very knowledgeable about the Bible.  Then they sent me home with a cantelope which was delicious!


  1. As usual, I'm uber jealous of your success with your studies. Arabic has been a welcome relief from the usual English service, but they are not as keen to discuss the Bible (because, of course, the Qu'ran is MUCH better). Glad things are going well, and keep up the good work?

  2. Oops. That last part was not supposed to be a question. What I meant was "Keep up the good work!!!!!"
