Wednesday in Costa Rica
March 29th, 2012
Greetings from Costa Rica!
Today [Wednesday] was our third day with the wonderful people of the church of Lajas which is south of Canas. Your Red Clay Team continued the work previously described, more painting, and we turned out the first finished desk.
This afternoon we were blessed with a reception with cake and coffee and many thanks and blessings for their first North American Team. We also presented to the church on behalf of Red Clay, the school supplies, quilts, and bed sheets, as well as the toys and games for the older children. These gifts will be used by the church for outreach to the entire community. The church has been very open and trusting of us and extremely gracious in making us feel welcome. They shared with us today that they have been praying for this church to be completed for a very long time and we are thankful to have been a small part of that.
Tomorrow we will be applying a second coat of paint to the outside of the church and completing the assembly of the desks.
