BIT 29 – January 10, 2009
I hope you all have had a wonderful Holiday Season, and a Happy New Year.
We are getting settled into things here, but it’s hard because we know that the house we are in isn’t the place for us to be. We are still looking for that right place, and are believing that God will bring us to it in His time. Trying to get settled in isn’t as easy as it sounds in a third world country.
Since we returned to Costa Rica I have enjoyed getting caught up with my old friends though!
Jammin’ with friends is always fun! I have already scheduled a full concert here for February, it will be posted in my tour section.
Unfortunately we had the sad news that came to us that one of my Aunts (my Mom’s sister), was killed in her front yard while walking her dog by a speeding car.
I couldn’t go, but mom said that there were so many people that came to the showing that the line extended out 2 city blocks where they waited up to 2 hours in the freezing weather to get in. Aunt Betty touched so many in her life, it must have been overwhelming. My heart goes out to her husband and children especially.
A very good friend of ours, Al, came down to visit us for a week from Florida, we have been trying to get him to come visit us for years and it was so nice having him come down for awhile!
We had such a great time showing him some of Costa Rica and introducing him to the local foods and a few of our friends here, we hope he will come back again and bring his wife the next time. He really liked the coconut macaroons.
While he was here we were able to go to visit the villages of San Carlos, La Fortuna, Zarcero, Grecia, Sarchi and a few others… It was a less hectic schedule for him as he is super busy in the states with his business and he rarely ever takes a vacation.
Since my return I’ve already played two Private Concerts and last Sunday I played at a Church in Puriscal, it was a nice time of ministry!
A number of other events are in the works here for the next several months, so keep checking my Tour Dates page for information on these as it is available.
I will be busy with my dad looking for a house so until we get settled in I’ll not have much time to devote to other projects plus we do not have ease access to the internet so this bit is a bit short… I’ll write more on my next bit if I can.
We had a nice Christmas together, as I hope you all did. Through all that has happened, It is clear that we should cherish our friends & family… Not just in this season, but every day!
Take care, and have a Happy New Year!
