What mixed feelings of coming back home from such an incredible week in Costa Rica, Falling in love with the people at the CIA church (Comunidad Internacional de Adoración), the children that attended the VBS events throughout the week, and the many people we met as we walked through the neighborhoods of El Capulin. Although hard leave, there is something to be said about coming home to our family and friends.
We had an incredible time during our stay, and saw Gods provisions all throughout the week. We witnessed changed lives, building stronger bonds, and new passions for God within our own hearts.
This was a life changing trip for everyone involved, and look forward to what God does over the next 12 months. We are in anticipation to return and hear the stories of change from the CIA Church. Pastor Jesse and his family are an incredible group of people that are making a real impact in their community. It is said that to see the character of a leader, look at their followers. The followers at CIA Church are some of the most dedicated, loyal, passionate, energetic, and worshipful people on the planet. It's an experience that can only be experienced. I hope that everyone will consider attending next years mission trip with us. Think of how much more we can do with an army of supporters.
As for pictures; I took so many pictures that it will take me some time to go through them and pick out the best ones to process and share. Check back often to see them during the next week. I hope to get most of them up by this next weekend.
We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support and prayers. Without you, no of this could have happened. We are very grateful.
