Communicating With You Makes My Day!!!

  • Day 1 in Costa Rica

    Well, we made it just fine.  No problems at all and, for that, we thank God.  The drive was a little longer than we expected but we arrived at the hotel Monday night about 8 p.m.  The road is full of curves and it is up hill most of the way.

    Tuesday morning we had orientation and then left for ministry. One group began working to remove the old roof of the church while the other went door to door rounding up the kids for Bible School.

    The people at the church are tremendous.  They are so kind and very hard workers.  Two of the deacons of the church were there working when we arrived.  It took most of the day but 2/3 of the roof is off.

    There were about 35 kids for the first day of Bible School.  They loved the coloring pages Tabitha Riggle brought.  The kids are very artistic.and were well behaved.

    We arrived back at the hotel about 4:30 exhausted and sunburned.  It reached 90 degrees and we were all working out in the sun all day.  Thank the Lord no one suffered dehydration. Some went to the pool, some napped and some took a walk.  Don Young did our devotion and did a fantastic job.

    Make sure to check-out the pictures in the photo gallery.
