Thursday, May 27th

Just got home after our first week back at K37.  The team from Herndon Va. has been washing, painting and cutting metal bars for the windows of the sanctuary at Piedras Blancas, painting the columns that hold up the roof of the gym, and pressure washing the slippery sidewalks.  They also laughed A LOT!  The team worked with us last year on the San Buenaventura parsonage and we were glad to see so many familiar faces again this year.  

We've been building the retreat center at Kilometer 37 for the past 4 years.  We've spent more time there than on any other project since we started Costa Rica Mission Projects.  So, even though we'd been away since last August, pulling up once again with the truck and trailer full of tools on Sunday afternoon, seeing William and Macho waving to us from the parsonage, unlocking the gates on all of the cabins...it all felt very familiar.  Our team is excited that this year we will be able to turn over the keys to the District and the facility will be fully operational.  It feels good to walk around the camp knowing that the lives of the people, young and old, in the Golfito District will be impacted by the time they spend there.  Our prayer is that it will be a place where they can feel God's presence, fall in love with Him, and become the kind of servants that He calls all of us to be.

We have a lot of work ahead of us this Summer, but with the help of the hundreds of missioners who are coming to work with us, I'm confident that we'll get it all done.  Thanks Herndon UMC for getting us started and thanks in advance to those of you who are preparing for your trip.

Peace on Earth

If you are needing to do more pressure cleaning of sidewalks I wondered if you were using a surface cleaner or just the wand that usually comes with the cleaner. I run a pressure cleaning business and investing in the right tools makes life much easier. I have a video that shows our ECO cleaning system in action - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owr-m2L_Sj0 let me know if this looks interesting and I will find a local supplier for a surface cleaner - rough estimates are a surface cleaner will allow 4-5 x more cleaning than a standard lance.

Thanks Keith.
