Costa Rica MWS Trip Update- 5-14-12 Part II

We drove through pouring rain, hoping our first game would not get cancelled…and it didn’t!  We were playing UCEN Alajuela, one of the top teams in the top women’s soccer league here in Costa Rica. By the time kick off happened, it was down to a very slight drizzle, and we didn’t even have standing water on the field(Thank you Lord!).  It was a great team effort, including Tannia’s first ever career goal keeping experience!  Messiah took a 2-0 lead into halftime, both goals coming from Corinne. In the second half, goals from Alex and Rachel sealed the win, leaving the final score at 4-0.  A solid win for the girls who showed tons of heart and energy, despite the long day and aggressive play from UCEN.  After the match we enjoyed  a few conversations and laughs with UCEN, took a photo together, and then Mackenzie shared her testimony with the group.  It was a great evening for sure!

By the time we got home and ate dinner, it was 10pm.  During Team Time we had the pastor from the church we are working with join us as he shared his testimony.  There were not many dry eyes in the room during his time of sharing about what the Lord has done and continues to do in his life.  He is an amazing man of God and we were all blessed and encouraged through his words.  We are so grateful to all our brothers and sisters from this church who have made this whole experience possible for us, and we look forward to joining them again tomorrow night for a time of worship.

But first, our last 2 clinics tomorrow! We continue to appreciate your prayers.

Buenas noches….
