Images from Costa Rica


Here is a quick blog post about our amazing first trip to Costa Rica. I am currently on a plane home as I type. Can you believe there is now wifi as you are in the air on a plane?! Very excited about this as it gives me a great time to upload pictures and blog and just catch up!

This first team to Costa Rica was so sent by God. Each person was so called and it was obvious as they interacted with the children. I've been on many mission trips. I don't usually see children cry when we leave. Most orphanages we visit have already had visiting teams, and they understand that the team will come and then have to leave in a few days. The orphanages we visited here in Limon had never had a team visit them. The girls at the second orphanage all cried as we were leaving. I have noticed that I've really had a heart for the pre-teen girls I meet. In Gulu, it was Faida. In this orphanage, it was another girl. She is 13 years old and she cried the hardest and the most. She was in the orphanage as her step father had been abusing her. This is where my heart is... I will write more and show you her beautiful picture tomorrow...for now, please enjoy some photos from our time with these children God so esteems!
