Day 1 – Here’s Your Hogar Team! We made it safe and sound!

Day 1

“Blessed are the flexible for they will not break”  We made it! Costa Rica is an amazingly beautiful country God has created.  It was an incredibly long day, but we are praising God for our safe arrival and that all of our luggage made it as well.

Today was a great, a long travel day that started at 1:16 a.m. when we left Lakeland enroute to O’hare. It has been a great first day of getting to know our team better through the adventures of our travels.

Matt and Helen kindly greeted us at the airport and drove us to Hogar de Vida. After a quick bite to eat, we went through orientation, took a tour of the facilities, and then enjoyed a meal prepared by Matt’s family, capped off by a rousing conversation of our favorite movies.

What a great day, tiring, but great and we are here eager to serve….after a good night’s rest.

Until tomorrow….Jake Bark for the Lakeland Hogar Team
