About Six More Weeks in Costa Rica

Time can really go by quickly. It does not seem as though it has been a year since I came to Costa Rica. Thank you to all who have been faithful in partnering with me through prayer.

I only have about six weeks left at the language institute. I will stay in Costa Rica for one more week after that. On Saturday, December 19, I’ll be flying to Lima, Peru where I will be for a few weeks. Then, I will be going to Yanama, Peru which is north of Huaraz.

There is one thing that has changed for me. I was going to go to Chiquián, Peru, south of Huaraz. But now I am going to Yanama instead. God is sovereign, and I trust this change is for the best.

These final weeks here in San José will be quite busy as I finish up at the intitute and prepare for the transition to Peru. Here are a few things to remember:

Please pray . . .

▸ that the Name of the Lord be great among every tribe, people, nation, and tongue

▸ that I would walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, pleasing Him in every respect, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God and His Word

▸ that I would grow in my understanding of my own unworthiness and dependence upon Christ and His grace

▸ that God would open my ears to the Spanish language

▸ that my last few weeks in Costa Rica be as fruitful as possible in reguards to langunge study and to the ministry at the House of Restoration

▸ that the transition from Costa Rica go smoothly

▸ that the Lord of the Harvest would raise up more laborers into the harvest fields

Missionary Quote:
We should always look upon ourselves as God's servants, placed in God's world, to do his work; and accordingly labour faithfully for him; not with a design to grow rich and great, but to glorify God, and do all the good we possibly can. — David Brainerd
