Some people are happy!

February was a month full of ministry in Costa Rica but in March it came to a screeching halt. Six Vida220 teams have been quarantined in their respective countries and Vida Missions teams have canceled for the summer. Daryl’s focus on receipts has not changed, however, the challenge is how to refocus funds with less coming in. El Nido Mobil (the crisis pregnancy center) was just getting started, we are thankful for connection via video calls. Community ministry at Casa VidaNet has paused for this time with a focus on connecting via technology. We are eager to resume ministry!

Some family members were happy: Adam’s two best buddies live right outside the front door and they have learned how to ride bikes! However, school is not fun in Zoom format and it can be hard to focus.
