Costa Rica: June 22nd- Early rise and shine! Breakfast at Denny's and then on the bus and out the door about 7:15. This morning we had a devotional at the church and then went to the local school. Byron spoke again and Jon Hackett led singing. Some of us went door knocking in an area about 4 miles from the building while, some did a community service project. The main part of the team went to a large public school and did a VBS for grades 1-6. We essentially did 4 VBSs bank-to-back and presented to 400 children.
We returned to the church for lunch and then had separate Bible classes for men and women. Then men's class is being taught by Chase Turner, who has done the class the past 3 years. The ladies class is being led by Diane Adams, who has also being teaching the class the past3 years. After dinner, we had a Gospel Meeting and VBS at the church. Jeremy Crump, from Houston, Texas, is the keynote speaker for the meeting.
After the meeting we had a time of fellowship and then returned to the hotel for the nightly ritual. The team, although from several different places, are bonding together really well. New friends are being made over pancakes and cheesecake!
