Costa Rica: Second Message

by ccumcadmin

Hola! We’ve had an incredible Tuesday! We started the day with breakfast and then a “TAG” time as they call it. This is a time where we can be alone with God and read a devotional, reflect, and pray for the day that is starting. We do this for about 25 minutes each morning. It’s […]

Hola From Costa Rica!

by ccumcadmin

We all made it safe and sound. Praise God for this place and every person in our group. The flight was smooth,and the weather is beautiful! So far there has been no rain at all!

Today we woke up in our new hotel, shared a wonderful breakfast of fried eggs, toast, chapati, fresh fruit and coffee. We boarded the vans and headed to Zoe headquarters in Meru. Zoe is housed in a government compound in a serene setting, and because Zoe is doing such good work, the government charges Zoe […]

We had a great time playing indoor soccer last night while Costa Rica won their soccer game! Today’s sites were great. It was a little rainy for part of the day so groups of kids were smaller but Zach & Nick gave a great testimony to their faith & everyone on the team shared God’s […]

Day Two in Costa Rica

by ccumcadmin

Great day so far connecting with the kids. So proud of our youth stepping up to serve even in the rain & volunteering to pray at every opportunity. Our team is doing a great job drawing in the Tico teens. Mostly because our youth can actually hang with them playing soccer. They even have older […]
