Update on Costa Rica

There is not much to report on Costa Rica at this time but things are getting crazy around here as we gear up to leave on Friday.  I had my last song practice this morning with the other girl I am singing with. The song seems really pulled together and we are ready to sing it.  We have been preparing a video to have playing while singing it with the lyrics to the song in Spanish going along with it.   Once it is complete, I will post it on here so that you can see it.

I thought I would just post a short itenerary on here of what we will be doing each day.  If you can remember to pray for us each day, that would be wonderful!! I would like to try and post to the blog each day but I am just not sure I will have time or access to do this.  But I was told the missionaries that we are staying with will be updating their site.  The website address is http://www.kuzdas.com/.  Click on Team Reports at the top of the page and click East White Oak.  I took a look at it and they already have some info out their for our arrival so I am confident they will be good at updating it!  Please note that Costa Rica is one hour AHEAD of us!
