Costa Rica volleyball trip update #9 January 7, 2012

Saturday January 7th, 2012

Well we don’t want to face it, but our trip’s coming to an end.  Yesterday evening, we had our match against the Alajuela team.  Although, we lost each game to them, the team tried hard and were glad to be playing volleyball again.  They had fun meeting the girls from the other team and sharing a testimony before we headed back to the AMCA house.  We got back and enjoyed dinner before having our final team time devotions.  We then went to bed as soon as possible because we were exhausted!

Today, we woke up for breakfast at 8 and then headed to Cartago for our morning match.  The girls had fun once again and were glad to win most of the games this time.  The girls from both teams exchanged gifts and and then we shared a testimony.  All of the girls enjoyed interacting with the girls from the other team again.  We then packed up and headed back to the AMCA house.  We had lunch and did a little last minute gift shopping at a local grocery store.  We then had our debriefing session together and reflected on our trip to Costa Rica.  We’ve had a great time together and appreciate what God has taught us through each other and all of the people we’ve teamed up with on this trip.

Now, we’re doing a little packing before heading to a professional soccer game tonight!  All of our Costa Rican friends like different teams, so it should be a fun rivalry and a great way to end the trip together.  Tomorrow, the first group will leave for the airport at 3am, and the rest of us will leave around 9.  We appreciate your prayers for safety and all of the support you’ve given us throughout the trip.  It’s been a great trip, but it’s time to come home!
