Tallahassee Family Team Update

Dear Family & Friends,

After a 5-hour bus trip to Orlando, a quick night's sleep at Comfort Suites, spending 3 hours at the Orlando airport; flying in an airplane for 3 hours; surviving customs in San Jose, Costa Rica; and a 2-hour crazy bus ride up and down mountain roads to Turrialba....WE ARE HERE!!

We arrived in beautiful, sunny and hot Turrialba, Costa Rica and hit the ground running!  So far, we have unpacked all of our suitcases, sorted items we will be distributing and enjoyed a great dinner of salad, green beans and carrots and macaroni and cheese!  The kids were ecstatic to have mac-n-cheese for dinner!! (This was the first time our cook, Indra, has ever attempted this dish....and she did a fabulous job!)

Our theme for the week is trusting God.  Tonight's devotional was on Matthew 10:1-10.  We are excited to see how God will work through our group this week as we learn to trust Him.  The kids on our team are preparing to share their testimonies about how they have trusted God with the children we will be ministering to.  Please pray that God will speak through their testimonies.  Tomorrow we will be performing our puppet show at a local school and at an orphanage.  We are all excited for the opportunity to love on these children while distributing gifts and sharing the love of Christ.

Many Blessings, 
Louie & Suzie Serna
