A NEW MONTH BEGINS ( COSTA RICA AND NICARAGUA)

¡Hola! It’s hard to believe that we have completed our eighth week as your American CIG family in Costa Rica! We are nearing the halfway point of our experience as missionaries! It has been an exciting week.

On Monday we had 3 of the 5 Japanese missionaries return to their homes after many months of lots of Hard work, love and investments here in Costa Rica.

From Tuesday through Thursday we had to head out of Costa Rica in order to renew our Visas. We visited our Nicaragua Family Federation community and were inspired to see the love and investments that were being made. Not very long ago Nicaragua was a country being torn apart by war, but even in the most difficult of times ours members there held their hopes high and continued the fight for peace and to bring Gods love to their country and the world.

Throughout the rest of the week, we have been spending time witnessing, providing guest care, and completing Divine Principle studies! Not only are we doing our best to invest into brothers and sisters who we meet at the Universidad de Costa Rica, but we have also inherited guests from past missionaries to Costa Rica. Through caring for them, we have been continually realizing how these are not just our guests alone, but these are guests belonging to God and True Parents!
