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.
