We're back!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that yesterday we arrived safely back to Costa Rica and to our home in Jacó. We are all really tired but are so happy to be back. Of course it is a drastic temperature change from what we experienced while we were in The States so we will begin to adjust to the hotness again! Thank you all for a wonderful visit home! We were so blessed to see all of you and spend time with loved ones. Thanks for all of your prayers---we are feeling them daily! We will blog more and post pictures soon! Off to more unpacking....

Christmas Outreach

As promised, here are the pictures of the Christmas Outreach we did in 2 different barrios in Jacó. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who prayed and gave financially! The outreach was such a blessing to us and to all of the children/families involved! The outreach consisted of clowns, refreshments, the Christmas story and a present for each child. It was wonderful and we look forward to building relationships this next year with many who attended. A few families came to church the day after the outreach and, Praise the Lord, one lady gave her life to Christ right after church!! It was definitely a day of rejoicing! She came over to our house after church for a visit and we were able to talk briefly about the decision she had made! We look forward to getting back to Jaco next week to begin walking alongside Jaquelin and her daughter Angelina. Again, thanks for all of your support for the outreach---it was a tremendous blessing and God was glorified!!
This is Jaqualin (who committed her life to Jesus the Sunday after the outreach)
