Saints Spotted in Costa Rica

Elise Walker, ESK Alumna and Saints League volleyball and basketball coach last year, travelled with her church (Bearden United Methodist) on a medical mission trip to Costa Rica in June. Elise carried with her three boxes of old sports uniforms that the ESK Athletic Department could no longer use. During the trip, the mission team was able to present over 100 children in the rural area of Venencia, San Carlos district, with soccer (“football”), tennis and basketball jerseys (which will likely also be used for “football”) and cheerleading uniforms. Also during the trip, the medical team helped over 100 people per day with prescriptions, advice and minor surgeries. The vet team vaccinated cattle and the construction team repaired and painted area houses.
