Guess What?

We are at 100% of our monthly support needs!  It's been an amazing journey and there have been a lot of twists and turns, but we are here! Gracias a Dios!!

That means that we are down to just $5,000 in one time gifts to be able to purchase a vehicle once we land in Costa Rica in a month.  That is top priority.  We didn't have a vehicle last year, but our world was only about a mile in either direction of our house.  This time, we will need something.  We have been praying for a vehicle that will seat 7 (this is a bit hard to come by in our price range) and that will be long lasting.  And did I mention how crazy expensive things are in Costa Rica?  A used vehicle that's about a 1999 or 2000 is somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000!  I know, right?  We were just as surprised.  Would you pray with us, that God would provide that $5,000 in one time gifts?  And that the right vehicle for our family would appear at the right time, preferable the first day we look?

And as of tomorrow, we will have one month until we leave!  Yesterday we started the "official" house hunting.  Really, we have been looking online since January, but now we can actually make some decisions on things.  There is a Craigslist in Costa Rica (weird, huh?) and some other classified add websites.  We've also been talking with the director of Campamento Roblealto and he is going to be doing some of the initial calling for us.  Our hope and prayer is that we could be moving into a house within a couple of days of getting to Costa Rica. 

Thanks for all the prayers and gifts and notes over this past couple of months!  We are humbled by the fact that so many of you are joining us in this work of evangelizing and disciplining the youth of Costa Rica through Campamento Roblealto.  You guys rock!
