10 days already?? wow!
Today we took a drive to San Isidro. It’s a larger town in the mountains a little ways away from Quepos. Beautiful drive, cute place. We ate a nice little cafe for lunch and stopped at a cute little cafe on the way home for coffee and dessert.
Yes, life revolves around food!
I managed to get more sunburned. Yes, I know, better start putting on more sunblock. At least I’ll come home with a tan 🙂
This evening we did 2 ESL classes, 1 with the kids, 1 with adults. My tongue is slightly swollen (so are my ankles, feet and hands, all from dehydration and the heat), so correct pronunciation of Spanish and English words isn’t easy, but they understood me well enough. We gave testimonies and all that again. Seemed like people were touched by God.
There’s another ESL class tomorrow, but I’m not sure what else is going on yet.
So far God seems to be plowing some ground in my heart. I didn’t come asking for anything in particular, just a touch from Him while I ministered His love to these people. This is how it’s been on other trips too, I’ll expect some answer or such from Him and I’ll get it towards the end of the trip. If I get nothing out of this trip, besides some spiritual growth which as already happened, that’s OK too.
I have discovered a few things about myself so far though. My self-image is in the pits. I want to base it all on how He sees me, but the physical is so hard for me not to focus on. I feel ugly and incompetent. I know in my head that I’m not these things, but not in my heart. KWIM? Actually, I’m sure most of you do.
OK, enough heavy stuff, time for bed. Talk to you all tomorrow!
One thought on “Costa Rica Day 10”
I absolutely know what you’re saying. Getting God’s truth from head to heart and then walking and living in it everyday is hard. But it will be so great if we just don’t give up! I keep thinking “how much more could he use me/do in me if I could just get this settled in me?!”
