This past week we went on the 2019 Costa Rica mission trip! It was a marvelous time and we as a team accomplished and learned a lot. We split up into two VBS teams that visited two sites each. The first group went to two neighborhoods called Pastoral and Linda Vista. There were a lot […]
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 […]
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!

So hard saying good bye to all the kids & staff at the mission. However, with this view, life isn’t too bad either. We are staying at the base of the volcano Arenal & will be going to the hot springs tonight.
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 […]
