from Charlie Haden
The highlight of the trip for me was time with my friends in our Trinity Youth group helping paint the church in San Jose. Working together was fun and I learned I like to paint.
I found that the people in Costa Rica were friendly and nice, and that it's a very interesting and pretty country. The coffee plantation was cool, I learned a lot of things about coffee!
When we played soccer with the Costa Rican kids from the church school, I was happy to see them having fun and being taken care of by the church.
Seeing the waterfall and the animals made me feel close to God.
I'm really grateful I got to go on this trip.
