Last Monday, John and I went to El Llanito to give out some goodies from the organization we are helping…’Serve One Another in Love’.
The founders of Serve One, Scott and Staci, came down to Costa Rica the Thursday before. Their plan was to go say hi to all the kids on Thursday and then on Friday distribute all the goodies they had collected for the kids at the El Llanito public school (backpacks, notebooks, deodorant, toothbrushes, brushes, soap, etc). Unfortunately, like most news in Costa Rica, they found out on Thursday while they were with the kids that the teachers were going on a one day strike on Friday. So, since Scott and Staci were going to be gone by Monday, John and I got to help distribute for Serve One.
The kids were thrilled to be receiving their own backpacks. They eagerly got in lines to get their boy or girl backpack. And starting pulling out all the different things they had just received.
I had a little fun with the pics and I think the kids did too. We started using a few props for our pics…they were cracking up.
