Please Pray for Us!

We are leaving today for The States for 3 weeks because Thomas, our oldest son, is having surgery. Please pray for peace for him and us and that the Lord would work through the doctors to care for our little one. Thanks so much for praying and we will post updates as we have them.

Camping Trip

So, Daniel decided to take the boys on a camping trip yesterday for the night. They have been talking about wanting to go for a long time and because the evenings here have been somewhat pleasant they decided to take advantage of it. They went with our friend, Bruce, who owns property on the beach in Esterillos, about 20 minutes from Jaco. This was the first "official", out of the yard camping trip for the boys so they were really excited! They had so much fun and look forward to going back sometime soon. Here are a few pictures of their adventures... eating beans in a can

Christmas Outreach

We had the Christmas Outreach thispast Saturday and it was a huge success!!! Thanks so much to all of you who sponsored children and to all who prayed for us and for the families represented. It was so much fun and the kids were truly blessed! For those who don't know, we do a Christmas Outreach every year for INVU, the neighborhood where we do kid's club. We invite all of the families and we have food, clowns for entertainment, the Christmas Story, presents and clothing for all. It was LOTS of fun and we had so many wonderful volunteers from our church who were a big help as well!! Daniel and I are praying that this is just one more way to reach the families, deepen relationships and gain trust to minister to theindividual parents of these children as well. We are really praying for that in the new year. The following are a few pictures from the Outreach Event.
