Costa Rica Mission Trip
Trip Dates: August 2-9, 2014
Purpose: To partner with our Christian brothers and sisters in Christ at Sola Fe Lutheran Church in San José, Costa Rica, to learn, serve, and share the Good News of Christ’s love together.
What we will do: Most of our time in Costa Rica will be spent with members of Sola Fe. We plan to do service projects for the members, lead VBS/soccer camp in the mornings, spend time with the youth of the church, worship, learn from church members, and immerse ourselves in the culture of Costa Rica.
Guesthouse: We will be staying at a guesthouse for the duration of our visit. Men and women will have separate rooms to sleep.
Meals: Our meals will be served at the church and in members' homes by individuals certified to serve meals to large groups. We will also have a cultural night with authentic Central American food. Most meals will feature rice and beans and local cuisine.
Things you may see:
- Beautiful Country
- Oceans and Beaches
- Exotic plants and animals
- San Jose
Fundraising: Mission team members will develop support teams to help pray and financially support individual team member costs. General fundraising may be done for the whole missions team and evenly disbursed to the group.
Passport/Visa: You will need a passport that has an expiration date AT LEAST 6 MONTHS PAST THE DATE OF OUR TRIP.
