Everything seems to be beckoning these days. We’re enjoying some much needed family time, suitcases are slowly getting unpacked and life is falling back into normal. All that being said, I downloaded all of my Costa Rica Missions trip pictures tonight and found a few hidden gems that were begging to be shared. Also, it should be noted, that if you are local and have followed our trip, save the date for Sunday, July 27th. Our missions trip team will be sharing at the Sunday Service at Eastport Bible Church. There will be more pictures and videos to see (all which are quality and coming from Jeremy who was brave enough to bring his nice camera, whereas all of my pictures came from my little point and shoot camera) and testimonies to hear. It’s going to be an amazing morning.
Anyhow, here are the pictures, and another glimpse at our amazing trip.
Steve-O taking a much needed nap. We had long, full days in Costa Rica and were pretty much exhausted by the end of the trip. And the beginning too, considering this picture was taken on our first Sunday.
We pretty much became experienced painters while we were there. I enjoyed it so much that I promised Ellee that we would paint her room, a project that has been talked about for the past two years or so. I’m currently working on convincing her that she does not really want a rainbow painted tie dyed room. Once we work through that, we should be good to go.
Jeremy got to experience what it felt like to have over one million colones, briefly in his posession. It was almost as cool as having one million dollars, and definitely more colorful. Well done, Costa Rica with your fun monopoly looking money.
If your wondering what they were so excited about… two words. World Cup. I think this was taken before the U.S. lost, 2-1 to Belgium.
Squats during Fun Club. To be honest, Fun Club was super fun, but once the exhaustion of a weeklong missions trip settled in, it tapered out a bit. Either way, it was “fun” while it lasted.
We made lots of friends during Kids Games. The kids were so friendly and amazing.
This was a common look for Justin. The kids absolutely loved him.
Ah, the Einfeldts. The most amazing sibling trio we’ve ever had on any missions trip.
And finally, this picture, is a gem for so many reasons. Two specifically being Gina Skarka and John Tuttle. Ah, memories.
One thought on “Gems”
With heartfelt thanks to Jeremy & Laura for all the great work you do with the Bible schools youth group. I really enjoyed the pictures taken of the C
