Here I am, my 2nd time in Costa Rica this month. I'm always amazed at the things I get to do. This trip has already been worth it. Didn't know what to expect taking 12 freshman (well now sophomores) out of the country. They've already grown. Tommy and Halle finally got their luggage late last night, so all is well with them. They had amazing attitudes the whole time, I was so proud. Today we went to two different sites to do VBS (vacation bible school). The first site was called Managua. The kids didn't know at all what to expect but they did a great job. They've learned a few spanish songs, and they're doing a great job of fumbling through the language. Everyone is already building relationships with the Costa Rican kids and I can already tell it's going to be rough when we have to leave them on Friday. Our second sight went a lot smoother than the first. It is called Calle Zimmora. The kids were like pro's this afternoon. Four kids (David, Cassidy, Cody, and Christa) have already had the opportunity to share their testimony using a translator. I can't wait to see what else is in store. Apparently this is exam week for the kids so we haven't had as many as expected but we are taking advantage of the ones that god sends us. Tonight we went into downtown San Ramon and hung out for a while. We are about to start the night session that consist of praise worship and a speaker. Keep praying for us. I'll keep you posted, everyone is healthy and doing great!
