Jul 21 Focused on the One Whose Name Is Eternal

Costa Rica Team Member

Our home base located in Desamparados, a town in the capital province of San Jose, has a population of 5 million people. Fitting enough, the name of the town means “Fatherless” or “Abandoned.” This seemed to be a central theme for our home town and the three other locations we had sites in: Los… More

Jul 19 Relationships and a Heart of Humility

Costa Rica Team Member

One of the things I wanted to learn by coming to Costa Rica was the commonalities and differences between my own Mexican culture and the Tican culture. There are words and phrases that they use that I don’t normally use, and vice versa! But there is a common value that I believe both Latino cultures… More

On Friday, some of us started the morning at 5:15 by playing volleyball in the middle of the street before breakfast. Our host mom, Ana, made us some interesting pancakes, and at the office, we dove straight into our devotionals, which talked about Cain and Abel, Enoch, and Martha and Mary. After… More

Jul 14 The Beautiful and Ugly in Costa Rica

Costa Rica Team Member

Wednesday in Costa Rica really threw us right smack dab into a perfect mixture of the beautiful and the ugly (in my opinion). It was our first day at our mission sites, but a very unique first day. This week the kids are on their last week of their mid-school-year break. So groups got to accompany… More

Jul 10 Prayers for the Ukraine Team

Ukraine Team Member

I am so far from my comfort zone. I flew 16 hours and then drive another 12 hours to get here. At the camp, I sleep in a shed where the door does not close, swim in the Black Sea where the jellyfish are many, and the mosquitos are having a tough time finding a spot that hasn’t been bitten, including… More
