We Are Moving to Costa Rica!



I couldn’t sleep a wink last night! My mind has been racing all night long at the thought of moving to Costa Rica! Well, it is happening! Jonathan got a job over there and it is pretty certain that we are headed in that direction in one week! It seemed to be a spontaneous decision, but, really it’s been on Jonathan’s mind for years now! So it seems that Father has opened the door for this opportunity to arise, and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about it! Actually, to be honest, I am nervous, scared, but optimistic, and persistently excited all at the same time! It’s pretty much a rush to think about, but I know that if Father is behind us, we can’t go wrong! There are so many things running through my mind. I can’t seem to stop thinking about it! Costa Rica! I don’t even know what to expect! The Job that Jonathan is taking is a teaching position at a private school there! It is called Falcon International School! He will be teaching mathematics to I believe, High school ages! It’s happening quickly, we are going to be there for one year! We are leaving in one week. In the meantime, there are bazillion things to get done! We are moving and taking all of our belongings to my parent’s storage place in New Mexico, and then we leave Thursday August 27th, in the afternoon sometime! I have to slap myself to realize that this is actually in the process of happening! I am quite amazed how sudden this is happening! My life as I know it is changing right in front of me! Its only for one year, I have to remind myself! I love my family and friends enough NOT to stay away too much longer than that! I will miss Durango very much, and my cleaning clients, and all that this place has to offer, but especially will I miss the friends that I have made here! They have been so much a part of my life that I can’t bear the thought of not seeing them on a regular basis! It will definitely be something to get used to! Well, we have a lot to accomplish before we leave so I must get to it! Please pray for us and our new adventure ahead of us, and that things will get done and it will be a smooth transition! It will be a trip for sure, but I know Father will take care of us! I will try to write more when I have time to breathe! In the meantime, stay tuned!

Nicole, spontaneous decisions are often the most rewarding. Just go with your heart and continue to trust the One who LOVES you most. I am giddy for you guys! We are moving, too...also a very spontaneous decision, but staying in the same city. Will you be "home" for Thanksgiving? I think we are coming there and I sooo wanted to see you. A little sad about that, but I feel connected to you and I know FB will keep us together. ha ha. Let us know how we can be praying. Love you both and wish you crazy blessings all over the place in Costa Rica!!! XO Vanessa

Well, I will say I have been following your posts, even if I haven't been commenting much.

I think this is a fantastic turn of events and I wish you the best. What a beautiful place to go. Yes there are things about it that might not be perfect, but still.

What a grand adventure! Keep us posted, for sure.

I would be interested to hear what part of Costa Rica you are moving to. I live in the Dominical area and actually have a site on news site about the Southern Zone.

Dominical Costa Rica News and Information. You can also see I have a blog on life in Costa Rica here also.

...and I also have a real estate site (not uncommon here in CR) Dominical Real Estate

WOW! Very exciting! I have a friend who lived there for a few years as a missionary. Among other things, she took in prostitutes and taught them the trade of hair styling so they could have better lives. It's quite a different lifestyle there, and it should be a wonderful experience for you guys! I'm envious but very happy for you!
