The photo below is from our "rancho" here in Costa Rica. From here, we can overlook the south end of town. I believe that God gave us this house to rent in this strategic location for a purpose. He wants the "heart" of Uvita turned toward Him; and we get to have a part in that! From this spot, we can pray for the people of the city on a regular basis. We have declared that Uvita belongs to Jesus Christ!
We are taking a few days to rest after our whirlwind trip to the US. It was wonderful to see family and friends - hard to believe we had already been gone for five months. The only disappointment is that we did not get see everyone on our list...
We are getting more interest in the school daily. I received an email last night from Donald & Cristy (the other missionaries down here who are going to help with UCA) that another family in town has interest in sending their daughter!
We know that The Lord is in this school!
I want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who are praying for the school and who have given financially. I promise that you are storing up treasures in heaven. The lives that are going to be forever touched by the hand of God through UCA are going to be many - and it is because you are making it possible!
All our love from Costa Rica!

Here are some links to some of our favorite books!
~ The Challenge of Missions (the BEST book on world missions we have every read!)
~ The End of America (I know it sounds bleak, but it is worth the read - end times type book)
