Costa Rica team heads into final days of ministry June 3, 2010

Today was our last full day of ministry.  We have a clinic tomorrow morning and then head to the beach in Guanacaste for the last day or so of our trip.  So far, it has been amazing seeing God at work in and through our team. 

Today was an extremely busy day.  We left AMCA at 7:30 and did not return until 4:30 and we were either working at a clinic or driving to the next clinic.  We didn’t even have time to stop for lunch.  The morning clinic was at the “Nuevo Horizonte” School where we worked with Ceasar from GOALL.  There were two sessions at this school and in between the sessions we played against some of the teachers at the school.  For the first clinic, we had our normal stations and then split the group in two with half playing a soccer game and the other half playing volleyball with Ceasar.  Julie shared her testimony at the end of this clinic and then we played the teachers.  The game ended up going in to overtime and then penalty kicks.  The kids really got excited about the game!  After the game, the second group of kids came for the clinic.  We had a shorter amount of time due to the game going into overtime, but it still went well.  Again, we had our stations, and then Ian shared his story with the kids. 

We had to leave the school as soon as we were done, to travel to the next school to get there on time.  We ate lunch in the car on the way to the “Benjamin Herrera” school. This clinic was at the school that Danny went to.  We had a lot of kids at this clinic!  The clinic started out well, and then it started to rain and we had to eliminate two stations that were out in the rain.  The end of the first clinic was a little chaotic, but it ended well, with Danny sharing her testimony.  For the second clinic at this school we adjusted our stations so that everyone was inside and although it was crowded the kids had fun!  Nattie shared her testimony with the kids after the stations.

After the clinics, we headed back to AMCA for a restful evening.  With the rain still coming down, I think the rest of the day will be spent resting, Team Time, and fellowship! Hard to believe that tomorrow is our last day of ministry. We are excited, though, as this means we are headed to the beach for the remainder of the trip!
