Gracias A Dios….

Gracias a Dios. To be be honest, the first time I heard this phrase, I thought someone was saying, “Gracias. Adios,” meaning “Thank you. Goodbye.” I was quite confused, but I soon came to learn that it simply means, “Thanks to God.”

We have so many things to be thankful for… and I think that November is the perfect time for sharing those. It is amazing to think that we have been here for 11 months. The Lord has been so faithful and continues to pour out His mercy upon us. Sure, there have been hard times, sad times and struggles, but even amidst those we have been reminded that the Lord is good.  Below are just a few things that we are thankful for!

you

We are so thankful for each of you! We could not do this without your love, support and prayers! Thank you for your faithfulness.

beauty

Thankful for the beauty that we continue to discover here in Costa Rica.

HUSBAND

Thankful for a creative husband. Because of the rainy season and no backyard, it can sometimes be difficult for the kids to find active things to do.

FRIENDS 11.57.29 AM

Thankful for friends and a Halloween celebration. Reeves was very thankful for “dirt ice cream” and “graveyard brownies!”

SKIRT

Thankful for our time at language school. Hard to believe we only have 2 months left!

Cornbread

Sometimes it’s the little things! Thankful to find cornbread mix for my corn casserole recipe. Yay!

LADIES

So thankful for this group of ladies! They have been such a blessing and encouragement to me. We will all be heading in different directions come December, but thankful for the time we have had together.

CAR

Praising the Lord that the tire fell off after Matt and Ian were off the highway! Thankfully they were back in town, in a safe neighborhood and only going about 3 kph. Thankful that Matt is friends with our mechanic and the car was repaired quickly.

PRAYER

  • We will be finishing up school in a few months. Please pray for wisdom and direction as we move into full-time ministry.
  • Pray for our safety as there has been a increase in robberies in our neighborhood.
  • Pray that we will continue to grow in the Lord and cling to His promises.
