I will never forget the experience we had participating in a Serve/Play Day at Hacienda Rio Cote with the led2serve team a couple years ago in the area of Arenal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. From the first moments as we sat down together to breakfast with a group of people we had never met, we were instantly welcomed, hugged and made to feel part of the team.
We were immediately impressed with the profoundly organized and motivated leaders, (not to mention their cooking skills!) in an area where even the most adventurous encounter all manner of challenge from finding a cylinder of gas to cook with, much less a kitchen equipped to serve a team of hungry teens.
Equipped to serve, led to love, share, and expand the hearts and minds of everyone she meets; the only thing better than knowing Vanessa is knowing how many lives she will touch every day that will truly make a difference – one gracious act at a time.
