After breakfast at the hotel, Brother and Sister Schwarz took us to a place called
Moravia, where they sell lots of souvenirs. We spent a good part of the day shopping and then went back to our hotel to prepare for tonight’s service. We went to another suburb of
San Jose called Desamparados. This is the place in
Costa Rica where the work of God first began. The church building was the largest of the 6 churches that we visited. The pastor, Ivan Salas, played the keyboard and led the worship, accompanied by 2 praise singers, a guitarist and a young boy that played the drums. (Seeing this boy made me homesick for our 10 year old son, who is also a drummer.) Brother Bledsoe preached a great message on what happened in Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost and how that experience is still for us today. We had a wonderful altar service with many being renewed in the Spirit and one person receiving the Holy Ghost for the first time.
