Costa Rica, 2014, The Last Day

October 10, 2014

This is our last work day in Costa Rica, we will fly back home tomorrow so we will try to finish our tasks as much as we can today.

We continue to work at the Seminary of the Americas in San Jose. We will be putting a second coat of paint on the new restroom building and the roof of the dormitories. They delivered several loads of top soil which will be used to fill-in low spots in the yards. This may be the hottest day since we arrived and it is taking its toll on us as we work away.

After finishing the painting some of the girls were asked to paint a protective coat of paint on a number of trees. This is supposed to keep the bugs from damaging the trees. It turned out there were a whole row of trees and took the rest of the work day.

At the end of the work day we all climbed on a bus and headed for down town San Jose for some solvineer shopping and sight-seeing.

After shopping in downtown Sam Jose we stopped at a local restaurant for out evening meal. This was a unique style where all of the food was served in a large pan with pork, chicken, beef, salads, vegetables, bananas, etc. Each table was served a large pan and everyone helped themselves to whatever they wanted.

This was a fitting end to a rewarding work day. We were all tired and happy to get back to the rooms, relax and get some rest.

Tomorrow it’s up and off to the airport for our return flight back to the US. This is an opportunity to count our blessings. We have seen many ways the people from Costa Rica have brought people to the Lord through their innovative programs. We are reminded of the passage from Luke that reflects what the missionaries and Pastors in Cost Rica are doing. Luke 10:2 NIV “He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” We have truly seen the results of the workers here in Costa Rica.
