After a long morning of travel, we arrived in San Jose! We immediately met with Pastor Jairo and took off to the retreat center. It's up in the mountains and it's beautiful! We feel very blessed to stay here. Pastor Jairo introduced the church and the center to us and then we had lunch together.
A great first two days!

We have been blessed with a fantastic first few days of ministry. Yesterday we went to both the morning and evening services at Oasis de Esperanza and had a great time worshiping with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

When the principal heard we were coming, he went on a quick errand to the store and came back with lots of sandpaper and paintbrushes! The desks have a lot of graffiti on it and they wanted a fresh start for when school begins in mid-July (they have a 2 week break starting on Monday).

The teachers at Patio de Agua primary school were incredible hosts today. We connected a water purification system to their pre-existing tank and had a chance to hang out with all the children at the school. Here we are in the classroom.

After some soccer, we had the chance to share the message of salvation with the children.

The kids go on a two week "winter vacation" after Friday. We made a big bulletin board that read "FELICES VACACIONES!"

We have successfully installed system #2! We have been naming them along the way. The first one is now "Abby" and "Betty" was completed today. We'll need a couple more names, one beginning with a "C" and one with a "D" for the next two!
Wednesday and Thursday

Things continue to roll right along. Hard to believe we are already installing our last water system of the trip. Yesterday, part of our team was able to minister at the youth prison. They shared with one another and played soccer with the teenagers. The director of the prison came running out when it was time to taste the purified water. He grabbed a glass, took the very first drink and declared "Fresco!"
