Costa Rica Day #2

Posted: July 25, 2017 by keystoneyouth in Costa Rica 2017

Our day started with an egg and fruit breakfast at 7 am.  After a devotion by our own Mike Kuhns we piled into our three vans and headed to Hannah and Esteban’s. The morning work consisted of painting the inside of the church, laying pipe around the outside of the church for a future baptismal, and carrying many wheelbarrow loads of dirt for a garage floor. For lunch, Hannah and a few women from their church graciously provided a large meal of rice, beans, and a plantain soup. We also had the opportunity to try mamonchinos, an authentic Central American fruit. In the afternoon we shoveled rocks for the garage floor to be concreted on Tuesday and gave the inside of the church another coat of paint. A little after 3, the children began to arrive for a kids ministry. Interacting with the children was a new and stretching experience for everyone, but with limited knowledge of eithers languages and with translating help from Hannah, we connected with the Ticos. First, Danny and Ben provided an engaging craft of a popsicle stick catapult. Elliot and Zach read and acted out the story of Jesus calming the storm. Cole and Winston finished the afternoon by leading another round of soccer games. That evening we ate Costa Rican spaghetti and took a walk to a local supermarket for snacks and ice cream. After debriefing and some card games around the table, we headed to bed for a sound night’s sleep after a tiring day at work.
