The Past Week...

This week has proved to be very interesting. First up:

Hopetown/Paradise Congregation Pioneer Meeting
The Hopetown congregation is now up to 13 regular pioneers (woo-hoo!). However, our neighboring congregation, Paradise, has only 4. So when it came time for our congregation pioneer meeting, we had a joint meeting with us and Paradise.

The following Sunday, Micaiah was giving the Public Talk in their congregation. But before I get to that....

More White People!
The pioneer meeting was on Wednesday. Friday we went into the capital, Georgetown, to pick up not one, but two new brothers. One was Levi Schultz, who's Micaiah's cousin.

See the resemblance?

The other is named Sage. I'm unsure about the spelling of the last name, but it's pronounced "Lam-row" (I think it's spelled like Lamreaux or something French-ish. Odd since he's from Tennessee.)
He's usually a lot happier than this. Maybe I had something in my teeth when I took this picture.

They came Friday night/Saturday morning, and then they went with us to Paradise on Sunday. It's a small congregation (about forty publishers) but they have a great Kingdom Hall.

And Now For Some Really Fun Stuff
We did two things this week that were fun enough they deserve a blog entry. First was a congregation party on the beach. Directions to the beach/Atlantic Ocean from where we are: Turn left, and walk for three minutes.

A variety of things that we did there:
Played cricket (sadly, I have learned how to play cricket)
Played a popular Guyana game called "Dog and Bone" (it involves running, tackling, and pain. A lot like American Football.)
Learned how to Wave Surf (that was fun)

And we did this...

Another recent event: We went over into Rosignol (the bordering congregation on the OTHER side) to have dinner with a need-greater couple named Travis and Kristen. Come to think of it, I don't know their last names.

Is it just me, or is this a recurring problem?

A picture of them from the Circuit Assembly. They're the two on the right. The guy on the left is Mark, and he used to be in Hopetown, but that's a story for another time.

That's all I have for this time. However, I'd like to leave you with an inspiring picture:
