Back to the Abraham Project for Tuesday!

We continued digging our trench

and shoveling gravel.

The team is awesome and they have worked so hard!

We had a contest of who could find the longest worm while digging....

And it's safe to say that Arielle won!

We continued our teaching in the Daycare Center.

Today's lesson was Jonah and the Whale (this is Jonah (Matthew) "in" the whale!

After lunch the gringos (us) play the Ticos (Costa Ricans) in soccer. Yesterday the Ticos won. Today the game was tied.

This is what the rest of us gringos do when the soccer game is being played....

After the soccer game we took a walk over to the Abraham Projects new land that they've recently purchased.

The land is beautiful. It will eventually be a parking lot for the new multipurpose building....

And four new children's homes.

While on the property we tried lots of fun and new things!

Cas, mustard, lemongrass, coffee beans, avocado, just to name a few!

We loved spending time with Steve, one of the missionaries here...

And hearing the vision for The Abraham Project.

The kids are definitely not afraid to try new things!

Here's a view from the new property of the Abraham Project.

It rained a lot this afternoon, so following our tour of the new property, we went back to sanding scaffolding.

Then it was time to head home. Here's a picture of our home for the week.

And the snack shop across the street--today's adventure was trying beef or bean empanadas. We also took a longer walk to find the local grocery store.

The team meeting tonight was sweet and encouraging. Robert had a word of encouragement for every team member. We then rested in the Lord and finished the night worshipping together. There are currently two different card games going on at the moment and some have already gone to bed. Every one has quiet times in the morning, starting as early as 5:45...which makes an 8:30 bedtime kinda nice!

We have one more day on the worksite. Tomorrow we are presenting salvation in the Daycare center. Please pray for our time with the kids!

We love y'all and are blessed by each of you. We show the kids the blog comments and they are encouraged to hear from home.

Buenas Noches!

  2. Keeping the team in our prayers. It looks like Arielle has joined her brother as a dirt moving expert. God bless your efforts there for the Kingdom.
