We go to a Christmas Eve candlelight service at a church we’ve never been to before, the Church of Surfing Jesus (I’m not making this up.)
Before passing the collection plate, they say tonight’s money can go to one of their mission efforts if you specify it on the envelope.

Oklahoma might be a good choice because it helps people near us. But then we consider people in such a godless land are likely a lost cause anyhow.
Mo marks “Costa Rica” on our envelope.
Besides, Costa Rica never beats up on UT’s football team …
