Costa Rica Wednesday Night

9 p.m. After posting the blog at McD’s I was picked up by Bobby and Kent and we went by the grocery store where we picked up Kathryn and Terry who had been shopping. We then returned to the church where the team had finished cleaning after an afternoon of painting. We loaded into the bus and headed to the town of Santana. On the way we stopped at a Burger King / Church’s Chicken to grab some dinner for the ride. Half of the team went to each restaurant. After everyone finished their dinner in the bus we spent some time quieting our hearts and praying for the evening service. When we arrived we were greeted by the pastor, Guillermo. It was a small church in a residential neighborhood and we were blessed as about 50 people showed up for the service. After the church’s worship team led us in a great time of singing, Ady & I introduced the team, gave some opening comments, then invited the team forward to perform our drama Everything. There were more than a few teary eyes in the room. Following the drama I shared a message on Ananias from Acts 9 with Adriana interpreting. During the message I had Sarah Chalgren come up and share her testimony which tied in perfectly with the message. After the message David and Tiffany Davila came up and sang a song entitled Solo Cristo. Following their song the team came forward and prayed over almost everyone in the church who had come forward for prayer. During the altar ministry Adriana sang a song. It was a beautiful service, at the end of which the pastor and his family thanked us for coming and presented us with two beautiful paintings as a token of their appreciation for us coming.

11 p.m. The team is now settling down to bed. I just discovered that we have WiFi here at the barracks, so I thought I would get up another post. Tomorrow morning we are heading out to another location where we will be staying for the next four nights. Thanks to those of you who posted comments! I will pass them along to everyone tomorrow.

Hey Team! Its great to read how you are doing and see the wonderful pictures. Pete-when Mom saw the pix of you playing Jesus she started sobbing. We are so very proud that you have answered God's call and are working for Him! No better place to be - in the center of His will! We are praying for all of you and can see how our beautiful Savior is working through you to reach the people of Costa Rica. You are truly the hands and feet of Jesus. PK & Ady- thank you both so much for everything you do for our children. You are both a wonderful blessing. We'll keep our prayer vigil going for all of you.
- Mike, Debbie & Grace
