After around 24 hours of traveling on airplanes and a bumpy bus, we arrived in Costa Rica at 5 AM on January 1!! Hallelujah! Our first day, yesterday was full of rest, fun, and yummy food! We spent time unpacking and getting all of the supplies organized for our VBS. We also spent some time on Susan’s beautiful lake and went tubing and kayaking. Last night we were able to attend a church service in the church that we did the VBS in this morning. And yes, it was all in Spanish. ?
Today we went back to the church to share the love of Jesus with the kiddos by singing some music, doing crafts, sharing a verse and Bible lesson with them, and playing games. 80 kids showed up and several made a decision to accept Jesus into their heart. Yay God! We enjoyed connecting with the little kids even though there was a language barrier. Next, we went shopping and stopped to see several iguanas hanging out in the trees. We had such a great day and can’t wait to see what God will reveal to us during this week! Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to minister to kids and share with them the love of Jesus.
