I'm excited to go to Costa Rica for the opportunity to live alongside others, and show them Jesus through the way I love. While preparing to go to an underdeveloped area of Costa Rica, my prayer is that overall, God will be glorified. "This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary" (Hebrews 6:19 NLT). A prayer of mine is that even if people don't have a lot, that they will be able to have the hope of the Lord.
The Experience Mission Costa Rica IMMERSION team and I will be traveling for three months to one of the most remote parts of the country to live alongside the indigenous Bribri and Cabecar people to learn more about their culture while building authentic relationships with local people. As team members, we will: embrace a humble way of life, be challenged to step into leadership roles, learn to appreciate the richness of simplicity, participate in meaningful projects for sustainable change, work towards mutual
influence in all relationships and community development.
