These pictures should have been posted earlier, but here are two of our group pictures from Costa Rica. You can find more pictures on the church’s Facebook page:

Also for those on the bus ride from Los Guidos, when were trying to find some great Costa Rican music, I would like to share this song. The artist Chayanne is not from Costa Rica, but is a Puerto Rican Latin pop singer. It is an awesome latin pop song and a great song to dance too! The lyrics in both Spanish and English are posted below.

Madre Tierra (Oye)

Debes brindar amor para después pedir
Hay que perdonar para poder seguir
Recuerda que tenemos sólo un viaje de ida
Y hay que darle gracias siempre a la vida
A la vida
A la vida
A la vida
A la vida
Oye
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Lala lala
Cuando estés perdido y no sepas donde vas
Recuerda de dónde vienes y que bien te sentirás
Siempre que llueve escampa
Son consejos de mamá
Que con la bendición de tus ancestros llegarás
Tambor, tambor, tambor, que llama a tambor
Tambor, tambor, tambor de mi madre tierra
Tambor, tambor, tambor, que llama a tambor
Tambor, tambor, tambor de mi madre tierra
Oye
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Lala lala
Arriba
Lala lala
Caer es permitido y levantarse es obligado
No tires piedras al vecino si de cristal es tu tejado
Perro que ladra no te asustes, nunca te morderá
Que con la bendición de tus ancestros llegarás
Tambor, tambor, tambor, que llama a tambor
Tambor, tambor, tambor de mi madre tierra
Tambor, tambor, tambor, que llama a tambor
Tambor, tambor, tambor de mi madre tierra
Oye
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Lala lala
Oye
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas que tiene la vida
Abre tus ojos
Mira hacia arriba
Disfruta las cosas buenas

Mother Earth

Versions: #1#2
We must give love if we are to ask for it later
We must forgive in order to keep going
Remember that we have a one-way ticket
And that we must always be thankful for life
For life
For life
For life
For life
Listen
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Lala lala
When you’re lost and you don’t know where you’re going
Remember where you came from and how good you will feel
The rain always goes away
This is a mother’s advice
That you’ll get there with the blessing of your ancestors
Drum, drum, drum, the drum is calling
Drum, drum, drum of Mother Earth
Drum, drum, drum, the drum is calling
Drum, drum, drum of Mother Earth
Listen
Open your eyes

Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life

Upwards
Lala lala
It’s okay to fall and it’s mandatory to get back up again
Don’t throw stones at your neighbor if you have a glass roof
Don’t be scared of the barking dog because it won’t bite you
You’ll get there with the blessing of your ancestors
Drum, drum, drum, the drum is calling
Drum, drum, drum of Mother Earth
Drum, drum, drum, the drum is calling
Drum, drum, drum of Mother Earth
Listen
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Lala lala
Listen
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things that you have in your life
Open your eyes
Look up
Enjoy the good things
