We got given the grand tour of the property, which is extensive to say the least! The gym looks like a barn, and there are fields full of cows between all the buildings. To get from anywhere to anywhere, you have to meander accross long, paved paths, over cute little bridges, and through forests. The accomodations are fantastic. There are little cottages, and a lodge, and oh! I can't wait to find out which spot I'll be staying in! It's right by the ocean, as you can see, and of course, my favourite places are the forest and the beach, both of which I can enjoy at any given time.
The people were wonderful. I love being around Christians! There is an air of love and care and sharing a faith that is deeper than any ocean could ever long to be. It was work day at the school, and as we walked through, we met crews of students handing out hot chocolate to students who were working hard outside. They even gave me some, and visited with me briefly, excited that I'd be joining them in January. We stayed for lunch, and I met a girl from Costa Rica who was so sweet to me, and got invited to someone's birthday in February, as we chatted over lunch. I believe we'll be dipping apples in caramel? I met people from India, Germany, North Carolina, Washington, and all around Canada. They were so good to me.
PS. Yes, I realize Bible School won't be all roses, but I just wanted to share this positive experience. :-)
