Healed in Costa Rica

Growing up in Christian Science, I always relied on prayer for healing and inspiration. But it was in eighth grade that I truly made it my own and really adopted this approach to healing.

Each year, the eighth grade class at my middle school goes on a trip to Costa Rica for about a week and a half, and my friends and I had been excitedly planning for months. Before the trip I also prepared spiritually with my parents, praying to understand that my well-being came from a totally spiritual source. I knew that my health and safety were assured by God, no matter where in the world I was. By the time we were ready to leave, I felt secure and confident in God’s protection and guidance, as well as in my loving support at home. It would be my first time out of the country alone, and I was ready for the adventure!

During the first half of the trip, we stayed in an ecolodge in the rainforest, where each day was filled with tree climbing, natural cooking, swimming in the river, and environmental learning. After volunteering at a local child-care facility to restore their playground, we traveled to a small city on the coast called Uvita.
