Meeting Needs

Today we had the privilege of going down to Quepos (a city about 1 hr from Jaco) to take food that our church has collected for Casa de Amor. Casa de Amor is a drug and alcohol rehab center for men that is run by some wonderful missionary friends of ours, Kim and Laura Stilwell. They emailed us last week saying that they had great needs at the center for food and toiletry items. We presented the need to our church last week and what a blessing it was this week to see our church members wanting to help!! They provided tons of groceries for us to take and bless the ministry today. So, because Thomas was out of school today we made it a family day and went down with all of the goods and visited with Kim for a while. It ministered to us to be there with these men and they were so excited to receive all that we had, knowing the Lord had provided!! We then took the boys to a fun little restaurant for lunch called"El Avion" (the airplane). It is an actual a C-123 that was abandoned here after the Iran-Contra affair was exposed in the 80's. Later it was moved to Quepos and turned into a restaurant. They had a blast playing in the airplane and we enjoyed a delicious lunch there! Enjoy pictures of our day below...
