Eben-ezer!


The current pandemic has caused a lot of reflection for all of us. Today we take a look back at our Education Site. Over the past six and a half years, the Education Site has faced multiple challenges. There was a lack of materials to prepare for classes, like desks and blackboards, no real classroom space to meet, nor access to restrooms. In addition to that, Nicaragua faced a challenging political situation in 2018 that forced us to close down and serve in other countries.

One Smile Away


Today’s story serves as a reminder of how big of an impact our short-term outreaches have. Benjamin Jones, a student at Joshua Wilderness Institute, got to serve with us in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic, in January this year.
Preparing for a trip to a foreign country is both exciting and mysterious …. And yet even with all of my preparation, no amount of research could’ve prepared me for the powerful love of God in a matter of just two weeks. God introduced me to a fresh brand of community.

A Breath of Fresh Air


Much like the rest of the world, Costa Rica has been riding the emotional rollercoaster of COVID-19. Beginning in mid-May, the government started phase two of opening the country. This phase affected small businesses as well as our ministry sites. Many of the women in our Microfinance site are small business owners that have been badly hurt by the COVID-19 restrictions. Ivania is one of those small business owners who attended our Microfinance site for the last seven years.

God’s Love, Gospel, and Peace through Virtual Health Care


Our work as missionaries and ambassadors of Christ is to share His love, His gospel, and peace that transcends all understanding. For some of us, this means visiting a member of the community, installing a water filter, and then sharing a cup of coffee as we talk about Jesus and His overwhelming love. In our case, sharing that love and hope means having our patients’ afflictions, whether severe or mild, be both physically and spiritually healed.

A helping hand builds relationships


Today’s story comes from our Health Care Site Staff in Santiago, April, Brenda, and Jhanna, who continue building relationships with those in need. “Thank you.
