Parents and Panama

I’m working hard this week while students are on vacation to make sure that the books are ready to go in their hands starting next week. I can’t wait to see how excited they will be.

Over this past week, my parents came down to visit us. We spent some time here in Costa Rica and then traveled down to Panama so James and I could renew our visas. We were abundantly blessed by our time with them. Here’s a look at our adventures:

Needless to say, we had an awesome time! We want to pass along a few prayer requests to you as well.

1. Pray for the people of the Embará Puru tribe. They are kind and very strong people, but from everything we discussed with them they do not seem to know Christ.

2. The Costa Rican government lost my paperwork for my visa. Pray that they find it soon or if they do not, that we would understand what steps we need to take to get back on track.

3. Thank God for how good He has been to us. Discussing with my parents how we are doing helped me realize how much more settled we are here than we were when they visited just sixth months ago. What a blessing!
