Our thoughts and prayers surround you in these hours and days.
Charlie was our dearly beloved friend and brother in Christ. He came to Costa Rica to serve and to be a help to everyone he met. He did just that! We are honored to call him our Brother and Friend. Thank you, dear Isabelle and Family, for 'loaning' him to us in those brief weeks. He has left a large footprint in our hearts for us to follow. God be with you in every way.
