|Here we are teaching our Costa Rican friends the important skill of photo bombing!!|
|I got many pictures off the internet because of wifi issues, here is one that I took.|
|This picture looks fine on my phone, but for some reason it is looking blurry on here. Maybe it's my eyes!|
|We all love this little boy, Santiago, he's the baby of the preacher's sister-in-law!!|
Diego is interpreting and Daniel is preaching. He is the father-in-law of the regular preacher. He is the preacher in Buenos Aires, CR. We had members from other Churches of Christ who traveled many miles to come!!
The last night of our campaign was a huge success. This church has an average attendance of around 20 and each night we broke the record for attendance and the last night had about 120!!! Of those, around 40+ was children!! GOD IS GOOD, ALL OF THE TIME! Elizabeth, the lady we had done the Bible study with, was also back tonight. Of course, we all greeted her and gave her a hug. At the end, we had responses from people repenting or wanting prayers. A few of the visitors need more Bible study and I feel confident that the congregation will continue to work with them.
|I'm sorry for all of the blurry pictures, I'm only using my iphone.|
I knew parting would be difficult! We spent over 30 minutes giving hugs and kisses to everyone, some more than us. We took a group picture and Christian surprised us because his sister had made bracelets for each of us. We were just about to sing, "I love you with the love of the Lord", when they started singing it to us!! As I said before, they are already talks of next year. I know in the states, gospel campaigns and meetings aren't successful, but you know how in the Bible, Paul and others traveled around and visited congregations to lift up and encourage them? Well, Entonces (Spanish for well), that is exactly what happened here!! We encouraged them and more importantly they encouraged us!!!
