Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. And all that believed were together, and had all things common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
The Lord adds unto the church. The church is the whole body of believers worldwide, His bride. You and I are witnesses. Not all are pastors or evangelists or missionaries, but all can tell others what God’s word says and what God has done for you in the way of salvation. We have been asking for prayer for Alonso. God heard and answered those prayers. This note came to us June 5th from his wife Wendy, “Hi, good night, I’m Wendy. I want to thank you for your prayers for Alonso and thanks to Mr. Kevin because he have always been helping Alonso and giving tracts thanks to the prayer and help of brothers he received Christ. Good night. Blessings.” This is the work of the church, you and I. No building was involved. This takes place in the car, at coffee break, on the job site. We can play a part as others do, but God calls and saves. Here in Costa Rica there has been an increase in Covid cases. With that the government brought back more restrictions and lockdowns. We can drive every other day and can go to church Saturday one week and Sunday the next. Our church continues to have services on both days. Masks are mandatory and full time with hand washing stations and temperature checks at most businesses. Most people do not go out much so things have slowed down a lot, at least in our area. All schools are closed; the school year here is February-December. Most government offices are online or appointment only. With all the gloom and doom the good news is there are endless witness opportunities. Let us not grow weary in the work of love, there are souls to rescue, there are souls to save, send the light. The health ministry is supposed to update the restrictions the middle of this month. Hopefully things will ease up soon.
Our residency process is ongoing. We have had to fill out more documents and get more paperwork from our church several times now. There always seems to be one more thing. In talking with other missionaries they had the same experience so we are not special. We continue to maintain travel insurance required by the government for Covid coverage. We continue to learn our Spanish and improve a little more. It seems to come easier for the kids.
We are in that transition phase from one house and town to another house and town. There is a lot more to it than just moving. We are looking forward to being in one place and not having to commute through the number 8’s as the locals call it. The mountains here are a lot like middle Tennessee and you cross them several times to get anywhere.
Thank you all for your faithfulness and continued support.
