Peter and a few colleagues co-led a spiritual retreat for 50 Dominican pastors and church leaders. This trip provided two blessings. First, the desire to see all four DR partners work together happened with this retreat. The second, was on this trip Peter got to do something extra special. He brought to completion a project our kids started and fundraised for back in 2014. God also showed us once again “God’s time” with the beginnings of restoration of relationships with pastors through the conference.
The youth dove into scripture in a bilingual setting, worked on service projects together, participated in team building activities, worshiped God bilingually, and explored and experienced Costa Rican culture and beauty together.
God designed us to do life together with others. In doing so, we also do ministry as we allow God to work in us and through us.
After almost four years of service in Costa Rica, we will be returning to the USA, beginning June 2019, to start our required year of home assignment. This is 6 months earlier than originally anticipated but it is necessary for Peter to receive medical treatment for his migraines (read more below) and to better accommodate the children’s transition to school.
