Our Family Bible Verse

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! Psalm 113:3,4

12 Weeks In CR…

By admin

We hope that all of you are enjoying your summer!  We’ve heard that it is boiling in Texas…so sorry.  It’s really nice here.

I am feeling better this week, and no one else is sick.  We are so thankful!  Carson had his last day of 1st grade.  I can’t believe that he is a second grader.  We are so proud of our big boy!  He will go to a VBS next week, and the following we he will start his intensive Spanish camp that involves sports and crafts.  They will only speak to him in Spanish, so we hope this really develops his language acquisition.

My second grader!

Our second grader!

We are learning a bit about the history of Costa Rica.  Many Jewish people moved here for business opportunities, and one of the main cities back then was called the City of David.  The first Costa Rica flag had a star of David on it also.  Very fascinating!

Also, every day we hear what sounds like “bombs” going off.  For the longest time we had no idea what they were.  As you can imagine, we thought of many possibilities.  We finally realized that one of the churches nearby sets them off several times a day to remember saints or if there’s a wedding or special occasion.  One day they were going off and a huge bolt of lightening struck right outside of our house.  Carson was angry and said, “Why would that church do that Mom?   Now we have no power.”  I said,”Carson, that was not the church, that was God.”  Micaiah ran to the door and said, “I want to see my God, momma.  I want to see my God.” So precious…I do too!

This April we will move to Costa Rica to attend language school. The kids will be enrolled in school there also. Please pray for our transition to Costa Rica and the ability to learn Spanish quickly. We will keep everyone updated via this blog. The Minnix Family
