Want To Come?

We will return to Costa Rica in January, Lord willing, for our 10th evangelism outing since Terry and Norma began leading these trips in 2008. On nine previous trips we have taken 80 different people from four states to the Central American mission field.

We have:
• Performed health clinics and/or construction projects in 15 towns and villages.
• Built a church building or built/remodeled structures to be used as churches in four locations.
• Added classrooms at two other churches.
• Offered seven Preaching-Teaching Conventions attended by hundreds of Costa Ricans from across the country.
• Distributed hundreds of Bibles and books and thousands of gospel tracts.

Here’s what’s coming up in January 2017:

Discipleship University

Instead of a convention this year, we are focusing our energy on Discipleship University, an intensive day-long class of Bible training for pastors and church leaders. This is something Costa Rican church leaders have repeatedly asked for.

Perez Zeledon

We will travel to a region in south CR we have not visited previously: Perez Zeledon, about three hours south of San Jose. We will work with a church in the impoverished village of Tierra Prometida (which means, “Promised Land!”)

Rural Churches

Unlike the larger multi-church worship services we have facilitated before, this year we will worship on Wed evening and Sun morning in small, rural churches. These small churches will love having guests from the U.S., and we will love experiencing authentic worship and fellowship with them.

Construction Projects, Health Clinics

We will perform construction and offer health clinics at Perez Zeledon, where Pedro Calvo is pastor of a church about 50 people, and at Leon XIII, where Rolando Aragon pastors a small church in one of the roughest and poorest neighborhoods of San Jose.

CR4C Day Camp

We MAY offer a day camp for children and young teens, including a gospel presentation, Bible stories and classes, music, games and food. It all depends on YOU. We need to recruit some team members who are called to help with this aspect of our outreach.

What About You?

• Do you have any medical or health training to bring to our health clinics?

We are returning to Costa Rica in January for eight days of preaching, teaching, medical outreach, construction work and lots of sweet Christian fellowship. Do you want to come?

Cost: $1732 (covers everything: air, hotel, meals, ground transportation, projects, etc.)

First deadline: RIGHT NOW! $50 nonrefundable deposits for air travel are due on Monday (Oct. 24).

This will be our fifth annual Costa Rican venture. During 2008-2011, we have had a total of 53 individuals from 15 churches take the gospel to Costa Rica with us. Last year we had 39 people from 11 churches on our team. Is God calling you to join us this year?

Many of you have already told me that you are planning to join us again this year, and are just waiting for the details. Well, all the details are now available.

I am sorry I am running so late in putting this information together for you, and very sorry for the short notice on the deposit deadline. The last three months have been one of the most challenging times ever for Norma and me — Norma has had back surgery and a very slow recovery, and I have gone through a huge transition in my career. I’ll tell you more about those things later.

Anyway, the details are available now. For those of you who have gone with us before, I can tell you that none of the major details have changed.

• Here is a four-page prospectus (pdf) with much more detailed information: CR4C-Jan2012-Prospectus.
