We have two seasons here: wet and dry. The air conditioners are now off at night as the unyielding winds have brought in cooler nighttime temperatures. The winds also ripped off part of our roof!
The kids are all back in school and we are trying to establish the new "norm" again.
We have a season of mission trips coming up, beginning with my parent's church coming down to minister this week in Costa Rica. You can follow their
trip journal here
We are excited to continue to make new partnerships with the local churches and pastors here in Costa Rica. We are finding that we do not have to pursue these partnerships, God is bringing them right to us! Pastors are hearing about how Praying Pelican Missions is coming alongside of the local church, not on our own agenda. They see that we are here to serve with, equip, and see their pastor's visions become realities.
Laura and I recently traveled to meet a Pastor who sought us out. We thought we would be meeting with just the head pastor, but walked into a room of about 15 people, all leaders in
the church. Honestly, I freaked out! I thought, oh no, here we go again, somehow I signed up to preach! To my surprise, it was just that all of the leaders of the church were there to hear about PPM. As my co-worker Anna said, "that's the best way to start a partnership!"
