Costa Rica Trip Update #4

Well, it’s Friday night, 11:15 Pm as I type this.  Tonight in our devo’s time we had some great discussion about servanthood, had some team members share testimony, and spent quality time in prayer together.  The day was another testament to God’s work here in Costa Rica.  At a school we went to this morning, we were blessed with time spent with about 100 children, most of whom are familiar with PTR.   We go there each trip that comes to San Jose, so there’s a great relationship there.  And before we left, about 10 of the students sang a song for us, and a young girl played a song for us on her violin.  It was touching, and a reminder of the opportunity we have to build into the lives of others, just through fun soccer games!  In the afternoon we went to a poorer section of the city and held a clinic for another 80 students.  By then it was quite hot (don’t feel too sorry, the sun feels great!) but the team, by God’s provision again, was able to remain full of energy and love as we spent time with them.  I could not be more proud of this team, and I could not be more blessed to be part of it, and to have the opportunity to get to spend time with our Costa Rican PTR team.  They are people with a real passion for Christ and service that is truly only defined by the teachings of Christ.

The games have been going well too! The women have yet to be beaten and the men lost one game, which was only 7 minutes long!  Tomorrow we head to a prison again, this time to play soccer with the juveniles that are in their for various reasons.  We are scheduled to be there for almost 4 hours, and we are PUMPED!

We are all holding up well and enjoying each and every minute we spend here.  We can’t get over how blessed we are to be here and to have this opportunity. Thanks again for praying … we feel it:)

Eric, for the team
