|Dear partners and praying friends,
We have so much going on right now we feel as if a mid month update is in order. We did load our container with our household goods and our Jeep on Feb 6th and shipped it. It is now in US Customs hold in New Orleans LA. Our shipper has no information on why, how long it will be held, or the cost to get it released and headed to Costa Rica.
Kevin leaves for Costa Rica Sat Feb 15th for a week of board meetings for thetrust/foundation we will manage in the very near future. Baptist Missions Development Center the property where the vocational school will be. Lots of discussion and putting in place of practices and procedures and much paperwork to be finalized and recorded with attorneys and local officials.
We are still at approx 90 something percent of our needed monthly support in the bank. We have commitments that hopefully get us to 100% before we arrive in Costa Rica. We bought our plane tickets this week and will leave on Thurs March 26th.
There are still a lot of unknowns at this point in the process. We had estimated needing an additional $8100 for the move and getting settled in. So far $1000 has come in toward that so we are a bit short as of today. Please continue to pray with us in these matters. We leave for our mission field and new home in 41 days and there is much to be done. It will be here in a flash. Thank you all for the prayers, encouragement, and financial support.
Kevin and Sonya McCoy
