Sorry for the delay in posting a new blog about our week with Glenwood! We have been really busy. However, that does not mean that we did not have a great week working with them and they did not bring tremendous glory to our Lord this past week! We were so excited about the teams arrival and they worked so hard here. They went door to door sharing the gospel in Ciprese and Santa Rosa. They conducted a men’s and women’s Bible study. They played with and encouraged the children at Don Victor and Dona Melba’s house! They played soccer in Santa Rosa and again the gringos won!! We may need to start loosing or they may get discouraged and we don’t want that!!! LOL!! They had a great time!! This group also ministered to our family! They were so sweet to our children and our family! They were such a pleasure to work with.
And for the chili jalapeno eating contest results…… I know you all are really anticipating this….. 🙂 They had two contestants in their group and two different strategies (I will not tell strategy!! LOL!) It ended up being Kristen that triumphed for their group! Not only did she triumph for their group, but she also beat Victor from Mt. Airy’s record! On a side note, she is such a tough little lady that earlier in the week, she fell in the rain and hurt her wrist. Pastor Dale’s wife Marianne is a nurse and she encouraged her to get it checked out. I also let her know that we had a family doctor in San Jose and I would take her personally to him if she felt she needed it looked at. I talked to Pastor Dale today and he said that she went to the doctor back in SC and that her arm is broken!!! She is one tough cookie!!!
As far as my health goes, please keep me in your prayers. I have gotten back into some pain. I am putting off going up on my Prednisone. I am doing better today than I was yesterday and yesterday better than the day before, but I really do not want to have to take more Prednisone. I have started the new medication Methotrexate and my body seems to be handling it well. So thank you for your prayers for that. I have been so encouraged by you guys’ prayers and encouraging words. Thank you!
Please also just continue to pray for the work here on the Irazu volcano!
A new team is coming in on Saturday from Mt. Airy! 26 people strong! And mostly high school and college students!! Please pray for their time here!!
