This is…

This is a Costa Rican snake. We thought it wasn’t poisonous, but it was. Thank goodness for one of the men at the church giving us that heads up right before we were going to pick it up. Lesson learned, and everyone was fine. Except for the snake.


This is what you do when you don’t have enough regular paint brushes to start the day out. I’ve clearly become more resourceful since coming down here.


This is what it looks like when you paint the seating area green, and then it starts to flake off because it doesn’t bond with the old paint so then you and your missions team gets to scrape off all of the paint that you just put on. Weirdly, we’ve spent a lot of time scraping off paint. I’m sure there is some lesson to be learned in it. I’ll let you know if I figure it out.


This is what it looks like after we finished up today. The good news was that most of the paint stayed on. The bad news is that some of it didn’t. And so we scraped some more. It was character building.


This is us watching the World Cup Costa Rica vs Netherlands game. It was super exciting and fun, right up till the end, when it was sad.


And finally, this is Steve-O, Michael and Victoria. They are amazing, and we love them so much. And this is me, saying thanks for stopping by. It’s midnight and I’m heading to bed.
