Costa Rica starting next project!

Costa Rica starting next project!

Hello family and friends!

On Friday, the team made more progress on the worksite. They welded most of the bars for the windows and finished putting mortar in the cracks of the building. Today we began digging holes for the office that we are building in addition to the classroom. Some of them really enjoy using the spud bar and it is something that they look forward to! On Saturday, we walked to the store. The team members love to buy their snacks and sodas! The team enjoys playing with the kids that live next door to the store when we visit. We put together a new presentation with new songs, puppets, and a drama. The team learned a song in Spanish called “Yeshua" for the presentation. The team loves making a joyful noise for the Lord! They are always singing worship songs together. 

We went to a different church Sunday morning. The team was thankful for the opportunity to go to a local church. We all were blessed by the worship and service. The team especially enjoyed singing along to Waymaker in English while they sang it in Spanish. The team presented the new presentation for the church. The pastor shared how blessed the congregation was by the presentation. Praise the Lord! They shared how encouraging it was to hear the testimonies of how our young people came to Christ. The pastor led the church in praying over our team. It was a sweet time to worship and fellowship with the nationals. After church, we went to a restaurant and had another local meal. The team even got to buy yummy ice cream. We have official practice quizzing on Sundays that the team loves. They enjoy being able to apply their verse memorization in a different way. We are cherishing our time here and look forward to what the Lord continues to have for us here! God Bless!
