Well, our last full day in Costa Rica is in the books and we are in full packing mode for the journey home! To say that our time here has been blessed would be an understatement. We are so thankful for our support in the states, our old/new friends in Costa Rica, and God's hand that made it all possible.
The pics above are actually from previous days, but I had to throw them in for good measure. Day Six pics will be shown below. On our last day we had some more time helping in the feeding area with over 100 children coming through for gallo pinto and other Costa Rican delicacies. We also had play time outside with futbol(soccer), sidewalk chalk, jump ropes, and bubbles. The kids had a blast and we enjoyed helping them along the way. After lunch, we had some good time with some young people and adults who wanted to learn English. In the course of our time together it became a joint effort of teaching English and learning Spanish as the need arose. The conversations were sweet and the Costa Rican people were thankful for the opportunity to speak with a native English speaker.
This post will be brief, but we are so thankful for all that we have been able to experience here. These opportunities will be etched in our minds for years to come. Our prayer is that this partnership opportunity will grow to yield much fruit in the days ahead. That God will call others from our church to serve next year as we are already in the early stages of planning for 2017 and dates fill up quickly. We cannot announce dates yet, but possibilities exist even before the Summer of next year for those who would consider serving. Anyone who is interested may simply speak with one of our team members and we will answer any questions that you may have. Thank you also for praying for our team as we return today (Thursday) and will be driving home rather late at night. Once the dust settles, we will share a bit more about our experience and the impressions made by the people of Costa Rica in our lives.
