    They won't pick you up at the airport, but they do have hourly free shuttle back to the airport which we really appreciated. Nice kitichen, wifi. Close to supermarket, and walking distance to Bank of Costa RIca in mall to pay airport exit tax if want to pay ahead of time.

I think there are parts of the group that need to be away from one another, and I think that we will all have a good time. So, the packing must continue.

    ... around and notice things. Not sure if it is because I'm finally realizing it really is more about the journey than the destination, or because I'm carrying an extra 20 to 30 pounds, or because our workouts have been sporadic over the past few weeks and we are terribly out of shape, but we took our time regardless.

    ... into San Jose to find a 24 hour pharmacy. He had been sick & had a wicked cough that had settled into chest. He says it was quite amusing because the doctor on call didn't speak a word of English. Although Andrew is fairly conversant in Spanish, apparently his vocabulary didn't extend to ailments. After a lot of pantomiming his symptoms, he was able to procure some prescription cough medicine which helped us all sleep much better our first night in Costa ...

The student had experienced this struggle with even his parents, and many of his friends and peers at UCR. He shared how important it is to own your faith and live it out.
