Mission Trip

NEXT MISSION TRIP TO COSTA RICA
TBA 2021
 
 
Thirty plus FUMC members were part of a mission trip team to Costa Rica in June 2018 and twenty plus in 2019 in support of the ministry of Rev. Ray Zirkel. Their mission site was 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 worked on applying stucco to a multipurpose building which will add a much needed resource (especially during the rainy season) for the home. Additional projects included work building a perimeter wall to secure the facility and painting the fence line. The group hosted Vacation Bible School for a local Methodist church and for the children at the home.
 
Depending upon the pandemic and travel recommendations, the next mission trip will hopefully be in the summer of 2021.
