Costa Rica update

I was able to speak with Tom while they are in Costa Rica.  They are doing a lot of work for the people of San Jose and surrounding communities.  Tom tells me that they have been working on a lot of homes, making them bigger by adding bedroom or a kitchen, porches and just fixing them.  The homes there are just made out of metal and a few boards.  Very different then what we are used to.  The neighborhood they went into yesterday was very dangerous as they couldn't leave their truck their for fear of it being stolen.  So all the group put things on their back and put their work belts on and carried the material up a large mountain.  It sounds like Trevor has been "kicking butt" with his unbeliveable athleticism.  I am glad that Trevor and Andrew have had a chance to talk with the children of this area and to be able to shine Gods light on them.  If you have a chance, you can access the blog here.

Thanks for your prayers and good wishes for them.  Some pictures from their blog below.

I think it is so awesome that your husband and the boys are having an opportunity to go on a mission - what a wonderful experience for them, and a blessing for the lives they are touching through their work. How's Mama holding up on her own back at home?
