Hey Everyone! Hola hola.
So far I’ve been having a great experience living in Costa Rica. Today we ate a delicious breakfast and headed down to the Abraham Project to serve God and the missionaries. On our bus rides, it is impossible for me to sleep or close my eyes because there’s so much scenery for me to take in. The ride is usually pretty long though. When we got there, we took nails out of as many wood blocks as possible. But THEN it started to rain. We had to stop what we were doing and go indoors for other work. We washed the dirty walls in the school area of the orphanage so that they could be painted later.
There was a little niño (boy) who had a mini conversation with me as I was working in the hallway. He was so cute and I was touched that he tried to speak in English to me. He was pretty good for his age. ❤ Anyway, then we had a break and ate lunch in the cafeteria. Our food was so spectacular.. haha I love the cook who works hard to give our team a yummy meal! It was rice, juicy chicken, mashed potatoes, and salad. P: After that, it was USA vs. Costa Rica in a soccer game outside. Then we worked on getting nails out of the wood again and finally ended our work by 3:00ish.
When we got back to the hotel, I went swimming with a few people (even though the weather was cool and drizzly outside). After that, we drove out to a restaurant and ate dinner. I’ve noticed that every meal is served with a juice in the beginning and a little dessert at the end. So the same thing happened with tonight’s dinner. 😉 I think everyone enjoyed their meal. Later, in the hotel lobby, a few people and I had a coffee party and hung out for a while. Then we had devotions. After that I was too tired to do anything else, so I went to sleep in my cozy bed. Buenos noches! ZZZzzz
PS- a special shout out to the 5th and 6th grade class: thanks so much for praying for me. You guys are the best. ❤ I’m really enjoying my time down here! 🙂
