I made it back!

After 10 amazing days in Bogota, I am back in Costa Rica and ready to hit the road running. I have a good amount of school work to catch up on and plenty of thinking to do. I learned a lot while in Bogota and I have a better idea of how things will be once I'm living there. I was reminded that I definately love "big city" life. There's just something about polution, 9 million people, and big buildings that feels like home. Go figure. I learned that, while the culture is different, people are....well, just people. We may speak differently and look differently, but at the end of the day we all deal with similar things. We go through hard times with our family, we worry about money, we work hard, we like to laugh, and we serve the same God. Here's a video of the week. Its 5 minutes (I know that's lengthy) but the last 2 minutes are the best part so I hope you'll take the time to check it out.

Thank you for keeping me in your prayers during the week. I have 3 1/2 weeks left here in San Jose. I hope to make the best of it! Until next time.

It seems you were blessed as much as the blessings you have given to others. God is so wonderful in that way. Thank you for giving to the Lord.
