We will begin where i left off last night, the soccer game was a great opportunity! Billy got to play with the club team! Eighteen of us, joined our own game afterwards with a fun time had by all. By the time we got back to Pura Vida we were all really exhausted so that ended day 2. This morning in TAG time we learned that to "love out loud = doing." We were challenged by 1 John 3:18, "Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."
After devotions, we departed again to our different sites, both sites doubling the amount of children that showed up with approx. 50 kids per site. (God is amazing!) Brittany Wright and Izabela Bautista shared their testimonies to the kids today, both touching the children's and even some of the mother's hearts. We left our second site a little early in order to attend a youth service in town. This really challenged all of us in the sense that we didn't know what was being said, but knowing that it doesn't matter what language you are speaking its all about the heart of worship. We have just finished our time of, "BIG UPS" which is a time of encouraging each other, and "GLORIA DIOS," which is a time of giving God all the glory for what He did in and through our day. Its been amazing to see how my fellow classmates have been able to hear more clearly, the voice of God, when being away from our normal lifestyles. (Come to the chapel to hear more juicy details! :p) Now, we are settling down for the night praying for God to continue to move throughout our time here in Costa Rica.

P.S. Due to our hectic schedule and limited internet access, pictures have to be loaded (which takes time). Hopefully we will be able to share soon, but we definitely have hundreds of photos (again, please come to the chapel to see our amazing pictures!!!) :D
