First Day at the Centers

Today was the first day at the centers! I was at Las Brisas, an elementary school. When we arrived all the little kids had a special ceremony for their holiday tomorrow. The holiday celebrates when Guanacaste chose to be a part of Costa Rica instead of Nicaragua. Its a big celebration in Costa Rica! All the little girls were dressed up in dresses and the little boys had fake mustaches and bandanas. They did little dances and had little presentations. After that was done, we got to meet the kids. I met a little girl named Gwendolina. She was 8 years old and followed me everywhere. All the kids wanted our cameras to take pictures. We all got to run around and play till about 11 and then the kids were dismissed because of the holiday tomorrow. God is so evident in this country. No matter if this is your first mission trip or 5th, this is something special and Costa Rica already has a spot in our hearts. In the afternoon we sanded and painted the walls so the kids will enjoy coming to school. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for everyone here this week, and what God does in these little kids hearts! Pura Vida! -Brittan Ragsdale
