Costa Rica Update #7

Well, our time in Costa Rica is coming to an end, but staying behind is our amazing team of PTR Costa Rica.  It has been a true blessing to work side by side with them, and the local church as we reach out to many local schools, teams, and prisons.  Thank you all for your prayers during this time, we have really seen good work not only amongst our team, but through us as well.  As for today, the painting in the prison went well!  We painted a “cell block”…2 walls greenish yellow and 2 walls blue.  Its fair to say that a good amount of paint ended up on our shirts….not sure how that happened:)

During that time, we were able to mingle with the ‘inmates’ and many of them talked to us, and some helped even.  What a time together for our team and also just to be able to serve in a practical manner.  The prison then served us a tasty lunch…and the guys we painted for(the prisoners) wanted one last soccer match, so the wardens awarded them a 30 minute game.  So that was extra special too.

After picking up some Costa Rican jerseys, we are now about to head out to our final match of the time here in Costa Rica.  Both teams will be playing tonight, then we’ll come home to pack up and debrief!

So this is it from Costa Rica, and again, thanks for your prayers, we really have felt them!

Pura vida:)

 

Eric, for the team
