Costa Rica 2014: Interns

We are almost a week in and it has already been an adventure! We are Abbey and Savannah, and are the GTD Costa Rica interns this year. Here are some of the highlights of our experience in Fortuna so far:

We have been setting up a lot of the cabinas for the team from Harvest church that is arriving next Tuesday. This includes getting mattresses, setting up fans, getting bedding, and making a food menu for the week. Also we have been planning all the details that go into clothing an entire village. It is a huge project, but we know The Lord will provide! 

Last night we had a break from all the work we have been doing and got to travel up to the windmills. Up by the windmills you can see the entire volcano and surrounding mountains. It was such a beautiful sight. We got to run through fields and have so much fun. It was a blessing. The Lord also provided us with a beautiful sunset. Last night was a joy!

And finally this morning we got to go into town for a local parade. It was cool seeing the local culture and people celebrating.

We are so excited for what The Lord has been doing in our hearts and for what He still has for us. Please keep us in your prayers and the team that is arriving on Tuesday! We know that when The Lord shows up, big things happen. Praise Him!
