Last day of School and Culture Day

20 Jun

Lots happened at the end of this week!  First of all, it was the last week for our kids’ school, so we officially have a 3rd grader, 2nd grader and a kindergartner!  Here are some pictures from the last day of school!

We also had cultural day at school yesterday!  We experienced what Los Turnos are!  They are like celebrations each town has!  Kind of like fairs.  We had a great time!  Here are some pictures from that!

As we have done many fun things this week, we are also in the midst of making many decisions concerning the future of our ministry in Costa Rica.  Please continue to pray that we are wise about our decisions.   We are currently in the middle of negotiating a contract for a rental house.  Please pray for this process, that everyone involved would be blessed in our renting this property.   Our Spanish is improving daily and we are working hard so that we can reach the people here!  We love the Ticos of Costa Rica and we only want to be and serve how the Lord wants us to serve, to the best of our ability.

      Thank you Lanny and Nell 🙂 We are in need of more financial support. We are in need of two types of support: 1. monthly donors for our living expenses and 2. one time gifts for setting up the house (we will have to buy things like mattresses, a stove (does not have one) and washer and dryer, ect.) and doing construction on the house to make it suitable. You can donate online through our link to Global Outreach or you can mail it into them. If you mail it in, please put our name in the “For” line on your check and Global Outreach will make sure that we get 100% of it 🙂 They are awesome! Thanks again!
