Day One- Arrival in Costa Rica



Our class set out to serve, change hearts and explore. Today we mostly invited people to come to our activities scheduled for tomorrow. We saw children a plenty and thankfully, the locals were very receptive to our presence.
We arrived in Costa Rica and were welcomed with food. After a short break, we had orientation. We then went out to the surrounding communities. They greeted us "Hola" and "Como estas?" We visited two neighborhoods and invited the children to VBS tomorrow.
After exploring the area, we had a diner fit for royalty, it consisted of rice, beans, plantains, chicken and salad.
Day one is almost over. Although we did not do much serving, we did plenty of planning. We all are excited and look forward to spreading the gospel of Christ here in Costa Rica.
As they say here: "Hasta Manana"

We have been praying for all of you young ladies who wanted to go out and minister to these children in Costa Rica. Can't wait to hear how your first VBS day went with the children. I know you must have won the hearts of those kids over when they saw your beautiful loving smiles. You have all had to give up alot of luxuries for this Missions trip but it will all be worth it when you see how many hearts and lifes changed because of the message of love and hope you delivered to these children. Thanks for sharing the love of Jesus to these children who don't have much of anything else. We love you and will continue to keep you in prayer. Ashley, I can't begin to tell you how many people are praying for you and I have everyone going on the Boca Christian Mission trip blog to see what is going on. They're cheering you on from down here in South Florida! Love you! Candee DelValle
