On Monday we flew in to San Juan, Costa Rica and then we had our first Costa Rican meal. Denny's!! It was late and right by the airport. ha ha We then drove about an hour to San Ramon and got checked in to our hotel.
Tuesday we went to the orphanage there in San Ramon. This was a hard day for me. I had never been to an orphanage and I didn't know how it would affect me. I was a little bit afraid to go, if I am completely honest. When we got there they had a big door, like what I had pictured the big, blue door in front of Home of Hope to be. The property was surrounded by chain link fence for security purposes. We walked down a concrete slope to something like a concrete basketball court. We saw a few children here and there and they were very curious about us. Once they realized we were there to do something for them, they were very happy and open to us. There were about 9 children in this orphanage. Some of the girls ran up to get hugs and the boys showed off on the two bicycles they had. We started out with a story for all the kids. A lady from our missionary's church came with us and told them a story which ended in telling the kids about Jesus. Then we broke out into the different activities we had for the kids.
Paul and I helped some boys make God's Eyes.
