Costa Rica update…7.27.15

It has been a long day, and its only 4:00 pm (local time). Waking up at 2:30 am to leave for the airport at 3:15 am (in the rain), plus a two-hour time difference likely all contribute to that. It was a nice direct flight down to Costa Rica – the first flight ever for one of our team members. Some of us took advantage of catching a few naps on board, which were interspersed with many discussions of books and movies. Our flight arrived early; we were met and picked up by local Push The Rock staff at the airport in San José, and then drove back to our new home. After briefly settling in, we were called down to eat a delicious homemade meal, but it felt like it should be dinner, not lunch. Conversation at the lunch table was a mix of Spanish, English, some confused faces, and lots of laughs. After lunch we made a quick trip to the nearby AM-PM grocery store to pick up some breakfast items and snacks. Thankfully today is an easy day with a lot of time built in to relax, play card games, and prepare for the coming week and a half. When we returned from our errands, we sat down for a little planning time, discussing the school and foster home we are headed to tomorrow and planning age-appropriate games and activities. We decided to meet for our Team Time devotions before dinner, since we did not think we would have the energy or focus to meet afterward. It is still very surreal for all of us to be here – and especially for me to return, but we’re all looking forward to jumping in and getting started with the kids tomorrow!

Thanks for your prayers! Pura Vida!
