Costa Rica Update #2 March 11, 2013
What a day! It was the perfect day to get acclimated and prepared for a busy week. We had a fantastic time worshiping the Lord with our brothers and sisters at CED. After a hearty breakfast of fresh fruit, sandwiches, and coffee, the team shared a song in the service … “Amazing Grace.” The worship band was great and the translator did a tremendous job of communicating God’s Word for our team.
After the service we went to lunch at a local mall. It is a wonderful tradition that the church has. Each Sunday whoever wants to go to lunch heads to the mall. There is a food court there with a combination of American and Costa Rican eateries. Our team probably went 50/50 in their choice of foods. We, of course, had plenty of time to hit up Pops and enjoy some ice cream. Seems to be a team favorite already:).
Well nourished, we went downtown to the outdoor Arts and Crafts Market to buy souvenirs. If nothing else, the team really got into the bartering that takes place when you and the shop owner do not agree on the price of your item. It was different to have our shopping day on the first day we were here, but it was the best way to fit it into the schedule. We spent a good 2 hours scouring the shops for the best items, and I think we are pretty confident that we found the best they had to offer.
We enjoyed a night back at our place of team devotions, testimonies, worship in song, and dinner. At the end of the night we spent a good deal of time in camp prep for tomorrow. It is getting late and we are up at 6:15 tomorrow. Hoping the Lord can make 6 hours feel like 8-10!
Thanks for praying for us! It is much appreciated. We are excited about what the Lord is going to do tomorrow through our two clinics and evening match. May the Lord be glorified in all we do and say!
