On another note, being in Jacó for a week really gave us a good pulse on the city and it is much darker than we had anticipated. Prostitution is rampant, pornography is everywhere you turn, drugs and drug addiction are an epidemic (Daniel got offered drugs about 6 or 8 times while we were there), and homelessness is very common. Satan is also having a field day trying to cause MAJOR division among the very small Christian community. The Lord has taken our prayer lives to a whole new level and I imagine will continue to do so as we begin to make our home there. Please pray for protection over our family--for safety, for protection over my boy's eyes, for unity among the body of believers, for our health (rainy season is beginning and certain species of mosquitos carry serious diseases), etc...thanks to all of you for loving us and serving alongside us while we are here.
Below are a few pictures of our time in Jacó...
