Welcome to this week’s update on The Journey Of 2. Jamie and I appreciate all of you who take the time to follow our journey as we serve God in Costa Rica.
Hooray, Jamie is home! While it was a productive two weeks for both of us, we were both ready for Jamie to be home.
Jamie had a wonderful time in So Cal. Special thanks to Suz Wittman and Karen Thormahlen for housing Jamie during her stay, and for helping with the presentation Jamie gave concerning the service God has us doing for Him in Costa Rica.
Jamie’s joy meter rose several notches due to being able to spend time with our children and grandchildren. It is a true blessing whenever we can physically be in the same place at the same time with our children.
Thank you also to all of you who donated the women’s bra’s and underwear that will be distributed to those in need in the Red Zone and to others that can’t afford to buy them.
Speaking of the Red Zone, this past week there has been a lot of police activity; particularly on our street. This is good and not so good. Good because it thins out some of the men who loiter around Casa Esperanza looking for free stuff. Not so good because it also tends to impede the ladies from coming; they’re afraid of being shook-down by the police.
Periodically one, or more, of the ladies will come in and need some first aide. Yami, one of our fellow workers, is the one who generally performs this service. Sometimes it is minor burns or cuts. Sometimes it’s mysterious holes in the arm or leg; plus, a variety of other needs. Yami does this service with love. Please pray for Yami. She has medical issues of her own, but she shows up every day to minister to the needs of others. Please continue to follow our journey as we serve the Lord in Costa Rica.
