Costa Rica

Attack of the Killer Ants

Michelle Tue, 10/17/2006 - 13:42

This morning set off for the volcano Arenal.... again. I've got this monster green backpack that is SO heavy. John keeps making fun of me.... I really didn't pack that much stuff but it seems like I did because the backpack is just so heavy. Fortunately it's a lot easier to carry when it's on and when you're standing straight up... but in your arms, it's a ton. So I'm lugging this thing around, but its ok. I've got a handle on it! We pile into the Land Cruiser and Nathan brings us to the bus stop and where we needed to wait for the right bus to take us up to Tilaran.

Special Assembly Day - Costa Rica English

The special assembly day was so nice! We got to meet brothers from the english congregations and groups all over Costa Rica. It was very similar to Mexico's english assemblies in that there is this apparent zeal and excitement for the ministry. Everyone there has a specific goal in mind and they're all just so eager to accomplish their ministry.

It was a very encouraging assembly and we had a speaker from the Costa Rica Bethel branch. A brother named Will Teasdale gave some really GREAT talks. When John, Jeanna, Paola and I left the assembly, we were totally pumped up!

COSTA RICA and PANAMA!

Oh my goodness... I can´t believe how long its been since I was able to write here. Sorry for not being able to keep in touch very well.... I was really surprised because when we arrived into San Jose, we went straight to the Bethel and it was far away from anything touristy so there are no internet cafes or anything nearby. So far we have had an absolutely FANTASTIC trip. I´m keeping record of everything and will write more details soon.

Getting Ready

Getting ready for this trip has been fun.... very stressful... but exciting. Who leaves for a month long trip with only 6 days notice?? hehe.. But that's quite alright. At least I'm going. It's sad too because I feel like I have to say goodbye to everyone... even though I know I'll be back in just 30 days. But I know that everyone wants to see us and wish us a nice trip before we take off, so it's been nice.
