El Dia de Amor y Amistad (AKA Valentine's Day)
Today is El Dia de Amor y Amistad ("The Day of Love and Friendship") here in Costa Rica. We have seen a lot of pink and red, flowers, balloons, chocolate candy, etc. much like what is going on in the United States today!
We are well into our third - and last - trimester of language school. We have been thinking more about the ministry we will have in Panama, but are also sad to leave the people we have ministered to and with here in Costa Rica. We will graduate from language school April 23rd and will leave most likely on April 24th for Panama.
Once again we will be going through changes and more transitions as we have quite a few times already during our journey. Many people say the life of a missionary is a life of "hellos" and "goodbyes". We are always meeting new people, getting to spend time with them, and then often it seems we have to say goodbye and move on. The kids have already started mentioning that they are dreading moving and leaving friends behind. Please pray for them as they transition to a new place, new school, new friends, etc.
