Costa Rica update #6 March 16, 2013
We just concluded our final day in Costa Rica. Hard to believe how quickly the time has flown by. We praise the Lord for a fantastic week of ministry here!
Today was a nice day to finish it out. We got up early (of course) and headed to the Hot Springs near the Arenal Volcano. It was about a 4-hour drive, but we made good use of the time studying Gideon and taking naps. We had a great time hopping from thermal pool to thermal pool (of varying degrees) and going down the water slides. Not sure how many of these slides would be legal in the US, but we certainly had a great time with them today. After lunch at Baldi we headed up to our Canopy Tour. What a tremendous experience! We ziplined through the trees and even enjoyed the Tarzan swing out over the jungle. The Lord provided us with a beautiful afternoon on the Canopy Tour, which gave us great visibility while whipping through the trees. In the words of one of the team members, “It was sooooo good.”
After the canopy tour we made our way home. We got home around 9:30, just in time for a late dinner. We were able to do our debriefing on the ride back. It was a bit unorthodox but it actually worked really well. It as great to share with each other about the experiences we had and how God worked through the team and through the ministry throughout the week.
We spent some time in Praise, Worship, and Prayer before packing up and getting ready for bed. We need to be leaving for the airport in 3 hours for the trip home, so should probably cut this off about now. We are grateful to you for praying for us! We saw God’s hand at work and it was awesome! Please pray for us as we travel home in the morning.
The volleyball team has a blog for the trip, so please free to check it out here.
