Costa Rica update 1/6/11 #2

It was another full day today. We have experienced so much rain the past few days that it was also nice to be able to enjoy the sun. Unfortunately, some of us enjoyed it a little too much. Our rose cheeks and Rudolp-esque noses tell the story. Not to mention the backs of the legs. Nonetheless, we had a great 2 1/2 hours this morning with the kids from a foster home. Normally filled with the voices of 120+ kids, all but 12 were gone for the holidays. These 12 did not have any family to spend the holidays with so they spent it with each other. It was great to be able to spend some time with, playing volleyball, sharing the story of God’s work in our lives and sharing how God loves them and wants to be a part of their lives as well … a Heavenly Father who will always be there, especially when an earthly father cannot.

By the time we made the 1:15 trek back to our house we were very hungry. Breakfast is at 7 am, so by the time 1 pm roles around, it is time to eat! We had a fantastic fish lunch and then headed off to play some friendly volleyball matches. The ladies picked up a player to round out their team and then the guys followed up with a match of their own. It was just a great environment there with the open gym and both each team really getting after it. We concluded the night with both teams sharing testimonies with the other players. You never know whether you are planting, watering or cultivating, but we do know we are to be faithful.

Once we got home it was time for dinner. Again, an 8 pm dinner makes for a long day. But we were blessed again with some great food and then had Team Time before finally heading off to bed. Tomorrow will be another great day with a clinic in the morning and matches in the afternoon and evening.

Thanks for praying for us! We sincerely appreciate your partnership in ministry! Please pray that we would finish strong as we are down to our last 2 full days here in Costa Rica.
