Our biggest kiddo has been enjoying a weekend visiting with friends over in Isla Mujeres.  (“the island of women”)  This island is a ferry ride off the coast of Cancun.  He left Friday and I guess he has been having a such a great time that he can only send back the briefest of texts.  😉  They are coming back on the last ferry tonight -they are probably on the boat now.

We had an interesting day in service yesterday.  Our territory is mostly based in the very tourist filled area of downtown Playa del Carmen but we also have a lot of territory on the non-tourist side too.  There are more and more english speaking people moving here.  Yesterday we worked right alongside the friends from the spanish congregation that works the neighborhood around our Kingdom Hall.


Here is the group from both the spanish and english congregations getting paired up to look for english speaking people in the territory



Julia (who is visiting for 6 months from Norway) is learning spanish and this sister knows ZERO english but they had a wonderful morning together

One part of the service group for the morning. We had to take this shot with each person’s phone and several cameras.

There are 4 spanish congregations, a french group, and an english congregation that use the Kingdom Hall here in the Ejido neighborhood of Playa del Carmen.

We have people in our english speaking congregation from 10 different countries!

  • Mexico, Canada, United States, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Italy, England, Germany, Argentina -did I get them all?

My little Ginger Kitty ended up getting sick later on -you can see her kind of falling asleep on Mikee in one of the photos.  She slept in my bed last night so I could keep watch over her.  After getting her all comfy I asked does she need any of her stuffies.  She said, “No. Because I have you.”


What a sweetie.

    I hope Ginger Kitty is feeling better. What a great idea for the English and the Spanish to work together to look for English. That is really que buena onda. Keep on Keeping on Tom and Levanne

      Hey Sue Ann,
      Austin said he met them last weekend. There were 15 at the meeting on Sunday.
      We’d LOVE to skype with you and Shannon and catch up on things. 🙂
