The day is here! Today is the day we leave for Costa Rica and we could not be more excited about it!
For some of us, this is our first missions trip. I personally have been dreaming about this moment for almost 20 years, when I first heard God’s voice calling me to go and make disciples of all nations. Others in our team are seasoned missionaries, and others are what we commonly refer to as MKs (missionaries’ kids) and have been around and involved in missions most of their lives.
Three of us are native Spanish speakers, and others have learned the really important stuff in Spanish, like: “¿Dónde está el baño?”
So far interacting with the team has been an incredible mix of different experiences and we love talking about our lives in other countries and our shared love of juicy mangoes 🙂
As you know, we’ve partnered with Moviendo Esperanzas which is a non-profit organization that seeks resources to help vulnerable and impoverished communities in Costa Rica.
Part of their work is in partnership with Samaritan’s Purse and involves distributing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. They also donate and fit custom wheelchairs to people with disabilities and Tom shoes to children and families in need. We are so excited that we get to participate in all of these things during the seven days will be there.
As we take our almost 7-hours flight to Liberia, I ask you that you continue to pray for our safety, health and the work we’ll be doing.
Gracias por tus oraciones (thank you for your prayers).
P.S.: Jesus kindly proofread this post for me and edited it accordingly.
