Costa Rica

In February I (Jeff) had the opportunity to go on a trip with a bunch of men to Costa Rica. It was a Students International men's trip. For the first time, in a long time, I was a participant not a leader. It was a great trip! Imagine a men's retreat and a mission trip combo and that is pretty much what it was like. We worked alongisde the missionary SI partners with in Shiroles (a small town in the south east part of Costa Rica in the Talamunca region). We were involved in various projects ranging from a medical clinic to a water project in the jungle to supply water to the town. It was refreshing and rejuvenating for me personally and a chance to regain perspective.

Above is a picture of the group.

After most of the team left five of us spent a few days in San Jose exploring opportuntites for SI to expand what we are doing in Costa Rica. God was good and there are many open doors and opportunites. Pray for us to be able to clearly here God and how he would have us move forward from here.
