Costa Rica Here We Come!

The excitement is building.  Matt and I have been preparing with a team of 10 students to go to Costa Rica over Spring Break.  If you're like me, you don't get excited about something until you're able to accomplish last minute things.  That's how I know the trip is close!  You know, things like printing tickets and traveler's insurance, packing supplies and cleaning the house.  All of those things are getting done today - just 6 days until we leave.

We'll be working with Ryan & Gretchen Rought - ABWE missionaries in San Jose, Costa Rica. They are a beautiful family!  Ryan works with TACTICA Ministries - ministering to the Costa Rican police force.

We are so blessed to be a part of their ministry for 8 days.  Please pray for our group...
  • We need safety traveling.  12 people, 14 checked bags, 12 carry can get crazy!
  • Strength for ministry.  Work projects, VBS, evangelism...a little bit of everything.
  • Open hearts that are BOLD for the gospel of Christ.
  • Servant attitudes - willing to put the needs of others before our own.
  • Christ's love for the Ticos.
  • Matt's parents - who will be staying in Michigan will Annelise.
Thanks for praying.  We look forward to sharing an update when we get back.
