Costa Rica final update…8.05.15 & 8.06.15


IMG_2070Today was our last full day in Costa Rica and we finished with half a day of ministry and half of tourism. We spent the morning at a public school working with about 35 preschool and kindergarten students. We started with the “Warm-up March” (a song with motions) and then divided the group in half to participate in two stations. The director and I shared a lesson and testimony after we finished the games. The time flew by – and it especially feels that way since we are on our way home so soon! We had lunch at the Soda Tapia, which is a very popular and well-known restaurant with a 1950s diner feel. After lunch we took a walk through La Sabana, the largest park in San José, and the location of the national soccer stadium. We ran a few errands on our way back to AMCA, where we changed and got ready for dinner. When we arrived at our hosts’ house, they reminded me that this was my home since I had stayed with them for a week last summer. They really showed their hospitality through the enormous portions of arroz con pollo and tres leches they served us. After dinner we returned to AMCA and a few church members stopped to say goodbyes. We spent our Team Time debriefing and praying for the kids, church, and ministry here in Costa Rica. It has truly been a wonderful time here, and many prayers of thanksgiving were offered for the opportunity to come and partner in the work Push The Rock is doing here. Afterward we finished packing and went to bed. Thanks again for your prayers during our time in ministry here and for praying for safe travels for tomorrow! Pura vida!



IMG_2092It felt more like I had only taken a long nap when my alarm went off this morning at 3:15 am. We headed to the airport and made our way through lines to pay the exit tax, check bags, and pass through security. Our travels, along with the rest of the trip, went very smoothly and we arrived back in the US on time. As we transition, please pray with us that we continue to pursue what God has been showing us through this trip and that we don’t leave the ministry behind in Costa Rica, but bring it back with us to our school, churches, friends, and families. Thanks again for joining in our journey and partnering in our ministry! Que Dios les bendiga mucho!
