Recently in our morning devotions we read Apostle Paul’s letters to the Corinthians. We were struck by how clear he made the gospel and the implications of Jesus resurrection from the dead. Some highlights from 1 Corinthians chapter 15:
The good news is that Christ died for our sins, that after he was buried, he was raised on the third day, and he appeared to many of his followers, including Paul. Through Adam all men die, and death and sin have power over everyone. But all who believe in Christ will be made alive in Him. Stop sinning! Share your knowledge of God. Because flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, at the last trumpet your mortal bodies will put on immorality. Thank God that Jesus’s resurrection makes all this possible.
We believe this also and by God’s grace we want to share this good news with others.

Thanks for praying for my (Bridget’s) English classes. Currently I’m teaching four classes and an additional four will start the first week in April, when school vacation is over.
Enough repairs were completed on our truck that it passed the Costa Rican car inspection and Paul could drive it home from San Jose. Our neighbor Greiven will be making more repairs, but for now we can drive it to town for supplies and to my English classes.
The new roof is on the Emmanuel Community Development Center! Paul is pleased with the work the men did and thankful we had good weather every day of the project.
Last week Paul was able to use his Cabécar to talk to some of the other customers at Greiven’s mechanic shop. We also gave our first presentation to our Cabécar language teacher. We used the vocabulary we learned to tell about some family photos. Paul breezed through his presentation, but our tutor made lots of corrections on my presentation. We appreciate your prayers as we continue to learn Cabécar.
who is risen!
Paul & Bridget
