Trav and I went to Costa Rica in October to celebrate our fifth anniversary. It was such a great trip, but made so much better by the fact that my friends Laura and Nate live there and we got to visit with them!
They are missionaries there, working with Praying Pelican Missions, serving pastors in Costa Rica and leading mission trips. Also? They are the best hosts out there.
They showed us around their beautiful country, fed us incredible food, and stayed up late chatting with us. Most importantly, they let me photograph their family’s life.
I’ve known Laura since I was 12. She was a counselor at the camp I attended and we became fast friends. She is one of the wittiest people I know, with the biggest heart. She has always sought to serve others first, and I noticed this trait has only strengthened since I last saw her. Nate is a great partner for her. He makes her laugh constantly and they are so clearly a team.
Their life is inspiring to witness and SO fun to be a part of. They are truly servants of everyone around them and we are so lucky to know people like them.
Thank you guys so much for your generosity and for sharing your lives with us. It was so amazing to catch up with you and we hope to be back!!
