Ginger Kitty came down the stairs this morning and her greeting was,

“I am super duper tired.”

Then she just leaned against the wall too tired to even finish coming down.


It’s been a fun busy week.  Worked in the local woodshop that builds for RBC projects here in Mexico.  Had lots of other little kiddos in our house while their parents had important appointments to attend.  Our circuit overseer is visiting and we have enjoyed every minute of that.  We have spent every day in service.  And also trying to keep up with all our other regular “stuff.”  We also squeezed in a little good-bye time with some special friends moving to the other side of Mexico.  There have been some not-so-fun things as we have friends going through some particularly difficult times right now and that takes it’s toll too.

We'll miss you Amelia

Inside the party were deep 'man' conversations

Outside the party was a beautiful double rainbow


So it was understandable that Ginger Kitty is feeling a little (I mean “super duper“) tired.  But Saturday was another busy day.

We started with picking up our friend Maria and meeting up for an early service group.  Our congregation is working to get a group going in Tlajomulco -a city that is an hour drive from our territory.  There is a large number of english speaking people who very much would like to learn more about the Bible.  Twice each month we go up and spend most of the day Saturday in service and also have a public talk & watchtower study.  (there are others that also go during the week for service -including Austin)  Then on the way back we stopped into our friends wedding.  We also had the privilege to be stuck in a parade.  We have learned when we are “in” the parades to look for the kid holding the stack of bottle rockets and the guy shooting them -they are usually right next to us.  (an interesting side point: the only place to buy these and other fireworks is through the church and they are sold to the very poor townspeople for religious celebrations)  We were able to drive by this parade.  You will notice it is the typical combination of catholic and aztec that is very common in Mexico.  The float even has the “head” of John the Baptist -thus the name of our town, San Juan Cosala.


This local family speaks english and has been supporting the group in Tlajomulco

Congratulations to Valeria & Hugo.
May your marriage be as beautiful as your wedding.

This kiddo had a couple hundred rockets in his arms



Oh, and did I mention that we are moving in a couple days?  So, in our free time we are packing like crazy.  Hope you are having a good day today too.

    Its very encouraging to read your blog! I’m planning a move to Aguasccalientes, which is the center part of Mexico, since there is an English Cong and a group of 10 publishers. I’m a single sister in CA, if you and your family can do it then I def can do it with Jehovah’s help.

      What a great move Sandra. That cong is part of our circuit so maybe we will see you at the district convention in November. Have you visited the area? Sometimes when a person makes a move like this, it’s not until they are here that they truly appreciate the benefits and joys of this kind of service. And adventures too. 🙂

    Moving!? I’ve been a faithful blog follower since (almost) the beginning (but having gone back to the beginning and having started there it seems proper and legit to say “since the beginning”) and I must say I didn’t expect moving to be in the plans. Is this plot number 4729 to mess with our minds? wow. Hope all goes well and that it’s as beautiful a place as you are in now. Same congregation and everything or a big move? I’ll have to wait and see I guess! Keep up the good work guys! (especially Austin and pioneering! great job!) love, Cheri (Mansfield congregation, friend of the Westons and Palanzis – who isn’t?)

    It seems everyone is moving, buying houses, selling houses, renting houses…houses,houses,houses. LOL

    When are you moving?

  • Ellice June 25, 2012, 9:40 pm

    OK, so you had the Flemmings and not Sinclairs? or both?
    And your convention is in Novembern, not September? Do you know where it will be?
    Hope your move goes smoothly : )
