I'm probably being a little dramatic as far as claiming I haven't done anything the last few weeks. My mom and I did go to Mexico for a few days to visit family, and it was such a blessing. I cannot even explain how much I love everyone there. In the midst of instability, everyone seems to be completely at peace and so strongly in love with the Lord. At church, I got to worship alongside my family, singing contemporary Hillsong in Spanish- it was so special. Each of my tias prayed over me to give me their blessing, and man can those women pray! I may not understand every single word, but I was so touched by the Holy Spirit. It is extremely encouraging to know people are daily praying for me.
So this is where the journey begins! I'm so excited to get to meet the Bribri community and to work alongside them this summer. I'm ready to lead the different short-term mission teams and meet all the different churches that will be coming in. Please continue praying that both my leadership team and the short-term mission teams coming in will be open-minded and flexible. Pray that we will continually place God first and rely on Him to lead us in how we can best meet the needs of the local people. Finally, please pray for safe travels, as Susie, Roberto, and I board our flights to Costa Rica! Next time I blog I'll be among the Bribri in Talamanca!!! :)
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
