WSM Costa Rica Team Update :: Mallory Ballew

July.22.2011

Hello from Costa Rica! Today is Thursday, and I’m so sad to be leaving this beautiful country day after tomorrow. I was put at the sports site at the beginning of the trip, and didn’t like it at first. I was the only girl there, the only one who didn’t speak Spanish, the youngest person by several years, and I was terrible at soccer. It was so discouraging, and I kept wondering why God put me there. Later in the week, I discovered that I really enjoy soccer and that the language barrier could be solved quite easily with the “Smile and nod” method. I very much enjoy being there now and wouldn’t pick any other site. Today, the kids had a water balloon fight and we played baseball and soccer. I got SO muddy. 🙂 Well, see you all in 3 days! P.S. Mom and Papa: Can’t wait to see you guys! I made lots of memories, took lots of pictures, and may or may not have gotten you guys some Costa Rican coffee… 🙂
