We're Back!

Blogging after a 10 day hiatus is difficult.  Would anyone else agree?

We arrived safely home at 3:30 am on Wednesday morning.  Our trip to Costa Rica was beyond words.  I've been on many short-term mission trips, overseas and within the States.  I never expect to have much impact on those we serve.  How much affect can really occur over 8 days? But this trip was different, very different.  It was evident that God met us in Costa Rica.  And His plan was for us to have a lasting impact on the ministry of the Rought family.  It was incredible to see each of our students get involved, grow in their love for God and people, and leave with an increased passion about the body of Christ.

I will share more in the coming days.  It's too hard to process everything and write it in one blog post. 

Oh and I'm sure you're dying to see pictures.  As it turns out, we left our camera at home. Fortunately, there were 11 other cameras with us!  Here is a link to one of the missionary's web albums.  She only captured the part of our trip that occurred at Sojourn Academy - where we did lots of painting and cleaning.  She takes fantastic pictures!

Thanks for your prayers and support.  Its wonderful to be home with our baby girl.
