Our past 3 weeks in photos.

I thought it would be cool to do an update of mainly photos. It’s a bit of a mix of recent events, but we think you will like it!

Family Time!

For 10 days, Ryan’s family came to visit. They took us on an amazing vacation through Costa Rica and Panama. Here are some pics from the trip!

Our first stop were the beaches of the South Caribbean of Costa Rica.. This was a small beach in Manzanillo, Costa Rica.

Crossing the border from Costa Rica into Panama. Literally the border crossing is this old railroad bridge, with wooden planks to walk across.

The vacation with our family was a rare, and great opportunity to not only see places we have lived so close to for the past 4 years, but to also spend quality time with one another and create lasting memories.

Skateboarders Coming Through

Right after our family left, we had a surprise visit from a Discipleship Training School from YWAM Panama City come and stay with us. They were in need of a place to stay, so for a few nights, we offered them to crash in our 3 bedroom apartment. They are in the midst of their outreach, with the focus of preaching/living the gospel to Central America’s youth through skateboarding. We had a lot of fun with these guys, please pray for them as they continue their outreach!

Missions Course

This past Thursday we launched the first class of our 6 week missions course at our local church! We have 20 “students” who want to know more about missions and be challenged to impact their local communities with the amazing love and truth of Christ! This program will go on for 6 consecutive weeks, please pray for us and the students, especially on Thursday nights while we are doing the classes.

Thank you to everyone once again who has been praying for us, we have seen God open so many doors and God has allowed us to be a part of pioneering something new at this church and in Costa Rica. We love the nation of Costa Rica, thank you for loving them with us and helping “make disciples of ALL the nations.”

With Love, Ryan and Nicole.
