February 22, 2013 to March 2, 2013
Each February, the Rockville Presbyterian Church and Johns Island Presbyterian Church embark on a journey with God, and those called by Him, to travel to Quesada Costa Rica, staying at a Mission Center run by Marion and Mary Woods. Though both are American, Marion has been a missionary in Costa Rica for more than 60 years. These faithful missionaries have been involved in planting scores of churches, training pastors, and supporting families for many years. Because they know this part of the country and its people so well, Marion and Mary have a good understanding of how we can best serve God and His people in Costa Rica.
The food at the camp is delicious and consists of mainly meat, rice, beans, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Of course, it is Costa Rica, so the coffee is incredible! The accommodations are not exatly five star, but they are more than adequate, and some find them quite memorable. We sleep in bunk beds and wake up in a beautiful setting filled with orchids, many varieties of tropical flowers and all kinds of wildlife. We even have warm showers, most of the time!
These trips always entail special projects such as teaching Bible lessons to children, repairing churches and schools, and building homes. All who love Jesus are invited to come and make a difference in His name in mission. Plan early because throughout the rest of this year and into the new year, there will be a series of team meetings and fundraisers. Group airline tickets will be purchased in November.
Is the Lord drawing you to a place of serving and sharing? If so, you should consider the opportunity to travel to Quesada, Costa Rica and give from the heart in service and in sharing the salvation we know in Jesus Christ.
