SUMMER 2020 MISSION TRIP
Thanks for your interest in our student ministry’s 2020 mission trip to Costa Rica. The trip will be June 14-21, 2020. We will be serving in and around San Ramon, Costa Rica, which is approximately 40 minutes outside of San Jose. We are partnering with an established mission organization called Pura Vida Missions (“Pure Life”).
We go to serve the actual current needs; not the needs we personally want to do. This is the nature of missions: serving people where they are, meeting their needs, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ! We trust that all participants understand this and go on a trip like this with an open mind that we will serve regardless of our preferences.
We will be running a week-long VBS program for children in the surrounding area and villages. Most of these kids are in deep poverty and suffer from various forms of abuse in their homes. They are children in need, and one of the best things we can do is to love them by giving them our time and attention while sharing the gospel. As a team, we will prepare in advance a number of games, music, crafts, skits and other fun activities for children.
The number of local children involved is unpredictable. There can be anywhere from 20-100+ children at a VBS in a typical week. Typical activities may involve parachute games, soccer, red light-green light, duck duck goose, balloon animals, bubbles, etc. We will also minister through music with singing, guitar playing, and other instruments. As a team, we will learn several songs in Spanish to share with the children.
We may also participate in some light construction projects as well. Please note that in planning a trip of this size, we cannot always accommodate projects such as these or other personal requests from our team.
The registration deadline is Friday, December 13. Included below is all the information regarding the trip, requirements and fundraising information. Please read over this information carefully before filling out the online application.
