Table Witnessing

Bavaro/Punta Cana is a very touristy area. Many people from all over the world come here on vacation. It is thought that about 40% of the tourists are Russian speaking. In this photo, there are a few brothers and sisters working at a table for public preaching. Notice closely the languages on the banner. Our goal in the near future is to use mobile carts displaying literature in english, spanish and russian. Perhaps other languages will be added in the future.

 

Russian Group in Bávaro

The Punta Cana area has become a high tourist area for Russians. Here is a photo of Russian brothers working at a table for public preaching. Many people of different nationalities pick up literature in their own language. And some request more information.

This photo was taken last year (2012) of some Russian brothers and sisters doing public preaching in many different languages, of course, including Russian. A group of Jehovah’s Witnesses was started here in Bavaro/ Punta Cana in the Fall of 2011. Most all in the group are only Russian speaking. They forge ahead the best they can to reach out to those Russians who have made the area their home.

Here’s some photos of our Brothers and Sisters who help out in the Russian territory.

On my bus ride here from Santo Domingo I asked Jehovah for an open heart so I could feel like I was among family.  That’s exactly what happened with you two and all the friends in Bavaro.  You will always be my Bavaro parents.  – Gabrielle A.

Nice Beaches Near Punta Cana

El Cortecito beach, white sand, blue sky and water.

El Cortecito beach is only about 5 minutes away (by walking) from where we are.

Our Bed and Breakfast is situated right in among the resorts on the coast of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  It is conveniently located–just a 5 minute stroll to El Cortecito beach, the same beach that many all-inclusive resorts use. Jehovah’s Witnesses like to do beach witnessing here.

There are other beaches to visit all along the coast.  One we all like is Macao beach because it has nice waves. Some people like boogie-boarding there, while others like to try their surfing skills.

Another nice beach to visit is Playa Blanca, about a 20 minute drive by car. It is usually very quiet there, and you can play volleyball, do some kite surfing, snorkeling, or just relax and have the waiters from the restaurant bring you something cool to drink.

Making a House a Home

My wife and I have wanted to share in the preaching work in Dominican Republic for many years, and now we have been able to realize our dream. We found a lovely place to live in a safe neighborhood of Bavaro, on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. The area is more commonly known as Punta Cana, and it is very popular. This is a great home base for our preaching activity with the English congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses located in Veron about 12km away. It’s only about 25 minutes by car, and there are also Spanish and Haitian Creole congregations at the same Kingdom Hall. Our congregation includes a Russian-speaking group, which adds even more international flavor to our preaching work.

We live in a quiet gated community with a very nice pool, and a beautiful beach is just a five minute walk away. We love to have our Christian brothers and sisters visit us. Please email us at info@preachingindr.com if you are coming to visit the Punta Cana area.
