God is Good in Costa Rica

An October 2005 trip to San Jose by jodellebobelle

Quote: The Costa Ricans, or "Ticos," are the friendliest people you will ever meet. The hearts of those who touched us, will forever remain in our hearts. And I left a piece of me in Costa Rica.

One word: naturistic. From the beautiful teakwood everywhere to the tropical flowers and the bamboo growing right outside your patio. Open-air and well-maintained. The Hilton it's not, but close to simply the way things should be, it is. My favorite part of the whole experience of this place was the solar-powered showers.

My heart melts every time I recall this trip to Costa Rica. I went with my church group on my first overseas mission trip. We went into some very remote villages in Puriscal, San Antonio, and others to give out bibles to the people in the villages. We met some beautiful souls and got to share with them how awesome God is.

The people there are searching for God, and they loved the bibles we gave them. The landscaping and the views we saw while we walked knocked our socks off. The beautiful foliage and banana trees and the smell of coffee everywhere you go is so te...Read More
