Our week with the World Racers!!

The World Race TeamWe had the privilege of working along side a team from the World Race this past week!  These young people spend 11 months in 11 different countries serving the Lord!!  It is a fantastic organization and this group represented their organization fabulously!!  We have experienced unusual cold temperatures in Costa Rica this week, however, we were still able to get a lot accomplished!!  The team shared their testimonies in the Bible studies in Cipreses and Santa Rosa!  They also did some planting with Jorge and also help dig out new irrigation for the new plants.  They also got to go the Victor and Melba’s house and visit and love on the children there!!  They also made us the welcome sign that you see in this picture!  This group just brought us so much joy and they expressed God’s love to everyone they came across with their joy!!  When I think of them, I just think of the joy of the Lord shining!!  🙂

You guys know how I love to cook and so I also cooked them a Christmas feast since they did not know for sure how they would be spending Christmas!!  I look forward to keeping up with these guys and seeing how the Lord uses their journey over the next 9 months!!

Courtenay's Diabetic Friendly Cranberry Scones

Courtenay's Diabetic Friendly Cranberry Scones

Court’s Cranberry Scones

1 and 3/4 cups whole wheat flour

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

14 packets of sugar substitute

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup craisins

8 tablespoons shredded frozen unsalted butter 

1/2 cup lite sour cream

1 large egg

Mix together the first 6 ingredients.  Then shred your butter into and stir the mixture.  In another bowl stir together the sour cream and egg, then add it to your mixture.  When the mixture comes together, you can either form the batter into a circle and cut it into 8 wedges or my choice is to just pat out in my hand 8 triangles.  Put them on a greased baking sheet.  And cook at 400 degrees for 17 minutes or until golden on top and firm to the touch.  Let rest another 5 minutes and enjoy!!
