Friday, August 6th

I'm posting this from the very middle from the United States.  Our team of 16 from Costa Rica arrived safely yesterday afternoon in Blue Springs, Missouri.  Everyone is very excited to be here.  Don Felix, the 92 year old we brought with us (and the founder of the church in San Isidro) had his face stuck to the window from take off to landing on both flights!  We are looking forward to a week full of different service opportunities and time to strengthen the relationships we have with our church family here.  We'll be in Blue Springs until Thursday and then we're off to Fort Lauderdale to spend three days with Christ Church, another congregation that has supported CRMP since day one.

One of the coolest things that happened so far (besides one of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen! see picture below) happened as we were leaving San Isidro for San Jose on Wednesday afternoon.  There is a team from South Carolina and North Carolina that has been working with us in San Isidro this week and they all gathered together to see us off.  I think it's an awesome testimony to what the church's call to mission is really about, that there was a team of brothers and sisters from the United States working on our church, as our team was departing to come to the United States to work here.  It's not about WHO does WHAT and WHERE, it's about ALL of us doing SOMETHING and SOMEWHERE!

Thanks to all of you who prayed with us about this trip.  From the visa interviews to raising money to safe travel yesterday.  Please continue to be in prayer for us as we continue to serve in whatever ways God has planned for us this week.
