We gathered together early and made to the long trip down to Costa Rica. It seemed like the whole plane was full of a variety of mission teams. There was a large group from North Carolina that had a puppet and dance ministry and another group from Norcross, GA that was doing VBS to the less fortunate areas around San Jose’.
The thing that captured my thoughts were the number of people pouting into this community. Even as we know we are only a small team of eleven, and that we may never see the results of our investment, the joy was to know that Christ was moving in this area. There were believers in Jesus that were spending vacations, money and energy to go love others. Yes, it may be a good get away from our reality, but it is still an outpouring desire to encourage and love others.
We got to meet up with Will and Ella and we are excited that we get to go up to a rural church tomorrow morning on the side of a volcano. (I just hope that they don’t get all crazy with sacrificial offerings!!) We hope to post more details, but just wanted to let our family and friends know that all is well and if our devotionals tonight are anything like the rest of the week, it is going to be a blessing we could not even imagine.
