DATES FOR JAN. 09 COSTA RICA TRIP SET
Many of you have been asking. We have now confirmed the dates for our next Costa Rica For Christ evangelism trip to San José, Costa Rica: January 20-26, 2009. That’s a Tuesday through Monday. Just as we did last year, we will be carrying out some projects Wednesday-Friday, including building projects and medical clinics, and we will facilitate and participate in a convention of Costa Rica’s independent Christian Churches on Friday-Sunday.
I know many of you have lots more questions, such as: Who else is going? How much will it cost? What projects will we be doing? How much will it cost? Where will be staying? How much will it cost? We are working out most of the specifics. I expect to be posting many more details on this website within the next 48 hours, so please stay tuned.
