Costa Rica Mission Trip

Costa Rica Mission Trip
June 16-23, 2018

Thirty plus FUMC members are expected to be part of a mission trip team to Costa Rica in June 2018 in support of the ministry of Rev. Ray Zirkel. Their mission site will be the Methodist Children’s Home located just outside the community of Coronado.

Preliminary work on the home began in 2007 and construction of the first home was completed in March 2011. The first children arrived in June 2011. Work on the second home was finished in April 2014. In just a few short weeks it too was filled to capacity.

The team will be working on a multipurpose building which will add a much needed resource (especially during the rainy season) for the home. Additional projects will include work on the administration building and the ongoing project of securing the perimeter wall. The group will host two Vacation Bible Schools during the week for 75-100 children.

Expenses to send thirty team members will be $47,000. With funds of $26,000 already available, an additional $21,000 will need to be raised to fund the balance of the trip. Each member of the trip is making a financial contribution and a fundraiser is planned for April.

If you are interested in supporting the mission team financially, please make your donation to FUMC and designate it “Mission Trip.” Your prayers and support for the team and their mission are coveted and greatly appreciated.
