Today we were put to work right away. Our first task of the day was to paint the old church building inside and out. This ended up being a surprise for the Pastor and the children's director of the church. The electricity was hooked and it will remain a secret if it came on the first time or not (until you come to our dinner, at least :)). The bathrooms were mainly lead by the Tico men. They were putting stucco on the wall and making braces for the roof. We were invited to a Celebration service tonight. It was a praise and worship service. One of the ninas that were have grown close to sang a song at this service for us. At the end of church, the Pastor and other leaders of the church thanked us and were VERY apprecative of all the work we have done for them. One thing our group has noticed is that everyone is thanking us for what we have done but really we are the ones that need to give thanks for everything these people have placed in our hearts. This trip has been an amazing adventure. We will miss you Costa Rica.
We will be leaving Upala today; therefore, I do not know if I will have any internet to update the remainder of our trip. I do know the plan is something like this: free day today...end up in Arenal tonight...fly out tomorrrow...be home really late (12:30ish).
