Finally Connected Again!

Okay, you are probably wondering where we have been.  We have been in Comalcalco, Tabasco, Mexico.  We have been staying with a family who do not have wifi. Although the family are extremely nice I find it to be a hardship not to have an internet connection. I realize that I sound like a spoiled, whining American but it has been very hard to not be connected to family and friends. I thought Merida was tough because we only had wifi in the lobby! I was wrong. So my words of wisdom are that if something is important to you you  should make sure that whatever it is is included in the arrangements others make for you.

I loved Merida! It reminded us of Antigua Guatemala.  It was cleaner and pretty. It has lots of restaurants and great old buildings. You feel safe walking around.

We took Ado busline from Poza Rica to Mexico City through the mountains. Great driver. Beautiful scenery. Veracruz is very green. Then we flew Interjet airline to Merida. Nice flight. Interjet airline was easier to work with than Aeromexico airline.

We have been out in service a couple times. It was interesting...mostly return visits and Bible studies. Tomorrow we will go out in Paraiso. We hope to finally see the ocean! I will let you know how it goes!

Yesterday we finally got to see Paraiso. We are thinking that if we do pick the Paraiso congregation to serve in we would like to live in Paraiso rather than in Comalcalco where the congregation is now meeting. Paraiso is closer to the ocean and smaller.

We are planning on leaving this area on Tuesday. We are not exactly sure how we will be going home. We will let you know.

Robin gave the talk today. The congregation meets on Saturdays at 2:30. Monday night we will go to meeting again.

We have driven by houses for rent. The rental market is diverse.  We saw
