Costa Rica Update April 4/17

Two weeks from tomorrow we take off.  Flight itinerary and tickets are in my hand.  T-shirt and cap arrived today.  Funding deadline is tomorrow and my friend’s is complete and mine is almost there.  Praise the Lord!

Some of these days I don’t know if I’m coming or going.  Took time out last night to go and see the Samaritan’s Purse documentary Facing Darkness about the fight against ebola in Liberia, West Africa.  It was an amazing production that really brought home the immense battle they had against this deadly disease.  What an experience these missionaries had and how their faith saw them through!  I’m overwhelmed to have a small part in this organization and its dedication to helping people around the world regardless of their colour or creed.

I have one more pill to take tomorrow against typhoid and the second drink of Dukoral to take the following Wednesday.  Then I just have a course of pills to take while I’m there starting the day before and finishing the day I arrive home.  All is good.

I was able to get a light-weight rain jacket and some very light-weight pants which will need to be adjusted.  Just trying to find a small flashlight.  Got extra batteries.  Probably forgetting something.  We have a group conference call a week from tomorrow which should answer any remaining questions.  The time is just flying and I’m having trouble keeping track of the days.  Very soon the pictures on this blog will be ones I’ve taken and I may even be in some of them.  So excited!

About mysm2000

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.
