Just finished the English convention of Jehovah's Witnesses down here. Don't worry, I won't be giving away any details just in case anyone reading hasn't had theirs yet. I think it's enough to say it was one of the best I've ever attended.
Something special we got today (Monday) was a meeting for all those serving here in Nicaragua in full-time service from various countries. We talked about the closing of the local branch and what that will mean for the 'need-greaters' here as well as the positive outcomes to be expected.
It was a bittersweet meeting since it'll probably be the last in this particular venue and many of the Bethelites that we've grown accustomed to will be leaving the country or reassigned to other areas of service as soon as November 1st. Many of us foreigners here have come to this country because of the warm welcome or encouragement we received from the branch. They'll be greatly missed.
