Doug and Judy ...Part 2

We took a little road trip to Giron to do some hiking and see some waterfalls. It took us about an hour to get there and the views were spectacular! The camera just doesn't do it justice! We had a really great day there. Thankfully, the weather was beautiful, so we had a clear view of the tops of the mountains! One of the brothers in the congregation, Guillermo, drove us down, and we also invited Cristian, one of the young brothers in the congregation, to go with us. You will see them in the video. It was quite the adventure!

>On a spiritual note, how did everyone's memorial go? We had a really nice memorial. There were 341 in attendance, which we thought was really good for our congregation of 140 publishers. However, I received a very exciting email today from some good friends of ours (Robert and Susan Woods) from the congregation that we belonged to in PA. Guess how many they had at the Memorial? 402! WOW! It just goes to show that Jehovah is definitely speeding up the work and there is work for us to do no matter where we are! Thanks so much for that encouraging email Robert and Susan! Keep up the good work! We miss you all!

Las Cascadas, Que bonita! What lovely pictures, wish I could have been there with you. Here in Lewistown we had 145 for the Memorial (about average for us)Doug & I were happy to have a Bible student there for the first time. Our 17 yr old high school student came and seemed to enjoy himself. Sounds like you had a wonderful turn out. Keep up the good work!!
