Eighteen amazing individuals giving of their time, resources, and energies to serve others in Costa Rica — while representing you and First Church — will be leaving for northern Costa Rica this Friday. We will help build two parsonages for pastors in this rural, agricultural area of the country (and possibly offer to finish work on the medical clinic we have been building) and lead amazing Vacation Bible School sessions with the children (our theme this year is “Let the Children Come Unto Me”) offering Bible stories, crafts, songs, games, and gifts for the children. We are also taking medical supplies, shoes, towels, toys for the children, and other needed items to the Methodist Children’s Home (orphanage) which we will visit on Saturday. We thank you all for your generous donations that support us so much with the construction supplies and other items that help these families. We are blessed so much more on these mission trips (this is our 11th year serving) than the love and blessings we travel to offer others in Christ’s name. Please pray for our team as we serve from July 1 – 11.
Grace and Peace,
