Friday, June 25th

As Wil said in the last blog my name is Colby Ray and I am a member at Asbury UMC in Birmingham, AL. This is my third time to come to Costa Rica and work with Costa Rica Mission Projects, but this is my first time to spend my summer here doing volunteer work.

New Albany UMC, a group of nine just finished working at K37. While they were here they spent their time sanding, painting, and moving rocks. The team finished sanding one of the cabins and started to pain it. We should have the rest of the cabins finished soon. In front of the new shower house we are getting ready to pour a sidewalk to connect to the gym. Some of the team members pushed wheelbarrows full of rocks and dirt all day, to start the foundation for the sidewalk. It’s about half way full so that is one of the projects that the team this week will have.

Throughout the week there was a lot of time building relationships and making new friends. It is always exciting to meet new people and hear their story, hear what God is doing in their lives.

There is one new addition to the camp. A very long piece of bamboo with a TV antenna mounted on the top, so we can watch the World Cup games. Sometimes the signal isn’t that good so someone has to run outside and turn the bamboo until the TV is clear. Its funny because everyone yells once the signal is good. Well Wil told me that I am going to be doing some of the blogs, so I will be back on here soon.


In Him,
