Four of us from this years team visited with the 1st thru 4th graders today about the upcoming Costa Rica trip. The kids were so attentive and curious. Brian showed them a small video of some of the trips from previous years. Showing the fun that everyone had at the VBS that we brought to them.
Brian explained what we were going to do, and why we wanted to do it. He told them of lifestyle, food, and various other aspects of life in Costa Rica. Many of the kids were surprised to hear some of the differences from the US.
When we opened it up for questions, the kids did not slow down asking about various things. The questions were all really good, and thought provoking. It showed that they had listened to Brian explaining the trip earlier. We finally had to stop the meeting to let the kids get back to their classes.
What a wonderful opportunity to spark future interests in missional lifestyle and trips.
