“Celebra la vida”

“I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy.” Phil. 1, 3

Nov 29th, we celebrated Andrea´s birthday with a lot of joy and delicious Costa Rican food. In the morning we thanked God for her and her family´s lives and then we had a typical Costa Rican breakfast with ‘gallo pinto’ and ‘plátano’. We had some surprises to her and just before lunch we had a short prayer with her favorite psalm.

“O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8, 1

We rejoice with thanksgiving for Andrea´s life and in a special way for her life in Sion. We thank God for your parents who brought you this life, we thank God for your family and everything that brought you here among us on this special day.

“My beloved is mine and I am his.” Songs 2, 16
