costa rica.. through the eyes of juju

June.30.2011

hello y’all!!
Man in the past few days I have learned so much about Students International like there’s no other!For me personally I had no clue what to expect. I went to Thailand with The Well amd was fully prepared to sleep in a hut, squat a pot, and roosters waking us up at 5 in the morning. It’s 100% not that at all of course, but it very much so has similarities. The poverty is no different, the lack of male figures, the education, and the list can go on, the kids just wanting to be loved on and just to have that attention on them, and pretty much the list can go on.
Coming here and being welcomed with big smiles and cheek kisses, which you have to got ot he left or else some lip action might happened, I was already at home. Our mama Ruth has one of biggest and most beautiful hearts, even through all the pain she has gone through, Ruth looks to Christ for her joy and peace which encourages me everyday when im here. I love her and her daughter desiree and lorezo. Thank goodness her daughter speaks english!
The work sight i am at is black&white photography with Dustin. it’s all manual which is a lost art! He enjoys photography but his heart and passion is 100% for the young boys that come. Buliding that relationship with the boys and being that fatherly figure that those kids dont have, is his ministry and passion. seeing that passion inside him and how he interacts with the kids is seriosuly beautiful because it’s the love of Christ in him that projects and mirrors God’s love. Which is such an encouragement to me in how i can continue to do that back home with the Susan B. kids and the new and exciting adventures to come.. Also the organisation staff has the same passion. All for Christ!!
God is so good and im so excited to be here and witness how God is using Students International in showing God’s unconditional love!! who knows what can come from this trip…thank you all for your prayers and support!! and sorry for the long post.
