An ex-pat view on Memorial Day

28 May

Memorial Day is not celebrated in Costa Rica. That is to be expected.  But the fact that we can live here is a direct result of the sacrifice so many made and continue to make.  Although we are careful not to put our nationality ahead of God’s kingdom, we are in fact part of the country and culture where we were raised, educated, and given the opportunity to pursue whatever we choose.

Because of their sacrifice we:

  • Are free to share the message of the Gospel
  • Are supported by churches and individuals who have no fear of government limitations
  • Can travel freely without concerns about returning to our native land
  • Know that those who pray for us back home can do so in freedom
Because of their sacrifice, we can share Jesus.
We are grateful. We will remember.  God bless those who serve and the families of those who sacrificed all.
