A group of young ladies from the U.S. and Costa Rica visited our area recently to take a break from their street ministry to help prostitutes and exploited women and children in San José. Anna Carroll, founder and director of Lightforce International Ministries, and assistant director Laura Perry brought five other friends with them: Allison McVey and Heather Hardy from Kentucky, Karlie Johnson from Virginia, Sarah McQueen from Pennsylvania and Valeria Alfaro from Costa Rica. This was their first trip to the beach in Guanacaste, and the weather was very cooperative in letting them get some sun before heading back to the capital. For more information about their ministry, go to www.lightforceintl.com.
Ulrik and Dagmar Oldenburg held a Catholic baptism service for their baby girl, Lauren Amanda, July 2 at 3:30 p.m. at the Potrero church. After the service, family and friends were invited to the Flamingo Marina Hotel for a lovely dinner celebration.
