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.

I pulled into the parking lot this morning at 7:35... it was like a ghost town. Eerily quiet. So glad you made it there safetly. Sorry to hear about the lost luggage, but it wouldn't be a BRCS missions trip without it?
Stay safe, have a great time and let God use you for his glory.

Thank you for posting your safe arrival, you know we moms worry:) Praying for all of you! Let the Lord shine through each of you. Remembering that each of you contribute to the body in your own special way. As it says in Proverbs 22:6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” What you are teaching during this short time, will stay with them for a lifetime. And I am sure, during this time your lives will be changed as well. Thank you blessing the Kingdom. Have a great week! Blessings and Love from the Hageman's.
