Costa Rica Update March 14/17

Prayers have been answered and Operation Christmas Child – Costa Rica now has enough volunteers to make it a “go”!  The transportation is all in place and excitement is rising.  The volunteers have received their orientation packages and before long our T-shirts will be in the mail with our flight tickets to follow.

Our itinerary tells us we will be flying into Liberia, Costa Rica, and from there moving into the Nicoya Peninsula which is in the north-west of the country.  In addition to the shoeboxes collected last December, we will be distributing wheel chairs and Toms shoes which I hadn’t realized before.  We will also be attending/assisting with several graduations of children from The Greatest Journey program.

I have only a little bit of Spanish so I’m trying to brush up on it and learn the correct Spanish for Costa Rica.  There is still so much to do.  I am so thankful for those who have contributed to my mission page, Operation Meet the Children, and am praying that I will have reached my goal by the deadline of April 5th.  I’m also looking forward to the team Conference Call a couple of weeks before we head off.  If you are praying for this mission team, please be specific:  great team work, health, and meeting our financial goals.  Thank you for your prayer support.

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.

    Reblogged this on Ms M's Bookshelf and commented:

    Last week I reblogged from my own travel site the exciting news about my upcoming mission trip to Costa Rica for Operation Christmas Child. From now until I leave on April 19th, I’ll be doing updates on that site and reblogging those updates on Sunday here at Ms. M’s Bookshelf. I hope you’ll enjoy reading about the preparations and will follow my posts there when I’m on the trip. So this is the latest news on my Sunday Reblog!
