Day 1 @ Pura Vida

Posted by: Hollie Hageman & Alicia Feldi

Our journey started when we left Boca Christian at 6:30 am this morning to arrive at Miami International Airport. All was well with the flight and we were excited to see how beautiful Costa Rica really is. A couple of unexpected turns (loss of baggage) have already taught us to be flexible. "Latin up" is the popular phrase here for, lighten up. We got to the site and were split up into two groups where we each were assigned different tasks for the four Vacation Bible School sites we will be working at for the next four days( 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon). There we will be singing, playing, and most importantly sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the Costa Rican kids. After lunch, we dispersed into our groups and went on what they call a "prayer walk." We used this time to go to one of the sites each group will be working with, and invited kids out for the upcoming activities and also prayed for God's favor and annointing. Now we're off to worship and learn God's word. Pray for God to use us mightily in revealing the Gospel.
