Costa Rica Dia de uno!

Here's what we've been up to our first day here!  I'll try to post an update every night if I can so check back! We are working with a missionary here named Cristian, his wife Alli, and cute 9 month old Jessica.  We are staying a little outside of San Jose in a place called the Central American Bible Institute.  Cristian and his dad Eddie planted a church here in San Jose called "The Sheepfold". We went to church there this morning, where there are about 30 people who come from the local neighborhood.  They also do a really great youth ministry with sports and hanging out with the kids around the church.  It's a pretty rough area so the ministry is a great influence in the kids lives. Below is a picture of Melanie and Romina from our team with Pato who also works with Cristian and two of the girls that came.  The church is in a house and you can see it in the 2nd picture. David taught this morning and did this for the first time with Cristian translating.  We played games, soccer, and hung out with the kids in the afternoon and the last picture is of Fabio teaching the kids at the end of the day.  Then we came back for a homemade spaghetti dinner, which was great!  Monday we'll be inviting neighborhood kids to their youth events and also going to a children's hospital to visit them.  So more to come!!
