Easter Outreach

Several missionaries got together the day before Easter to celebrate with games, crafts, snacks and skits, with the purpose of sharing about our Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. 26 children showed up for the celebration and were blessed by the efforts of all involved.

Of all the celebrations throughout the year and around the world, only Easter gives us the true hope that we will someday be together with our risen Savior, the Good Shepherd Jesus Christ.

Our Little Neighbors

These are some of the little animals we see regularly close to our apartment. We see white-faced monkeys as well as howler monkeys, and lots of tropical birds.

Did you know that porcupines live in the jungle?

The prehensile-tailed variety do...and spend most of their time in the tops of the trees! This one came down and visited our front porch one evening!
