Costa Rica Update #1 August 1, 2010

We could not have asked for a better or easier traveling day. We got a little worried when the security line stretched a mile long with a  little over an hour to our departure line. However, we were escorted to another line where we got through in time to grab some McDonalds for breakfast and jump on our plane. Upon arriving in San Jose, our luggage was all ready for us by the time we got through immigration and then once again we we were ushered through another security line as if we were celebrities. I’m not sure why the special treatment but I was not about to argue.

As soon as we stepped out the doors of the airport we were greeted by Nattie and Danny, our hosts for the week and soon after Guillermo our bus driver pulled up in the bus with a friendly wave. He is a very friendly man who will make our bus rides a lot of fun this week.

After settling into our new home for the week, we were treated to a wonderful lunch compliments of Anya our cook for the week. I am pretty sure we will not be going hungry this week. After lunch, the team went through some soccer skills and station drills to prepare for the week and finished up with a fun game. Then after working up a sweat the team enjoyed a nice swim in the pool.

Tonight we will wrap up the day with Team Time where we will come together to study God’s Word from 2 Timothy and prepare for the week in prayer. God is certainly going before us as we come together as a team.

Tomorrow we look forward to fellowship and worship with the church that we have come here to serve with. Please pray that as meet and spend time with them, we would bless them as they encourage us and our unity in Christ would be evident in our time together.

For the team,
