Costa Rica Mission Trip

Someone says "COSTA RICA" and you immediately have thoughts of beautiful tropical beaches and rainforests. But here at Emmanuel many of us picture the village of Estrada, its residents, and the bountiful banana plantations that surround the village and where many of the adults labor. We remember our commitment to build a safe place where the villager's children are cared for, in addition to a structurally safe and welcoming church for all to worship in.

A typical workday includes breakfast at Earth University's cafeteria then off to Estrada. Work in the morning, lunch on jobsite and then continue with assigned job. Workday ends at 3pm. We head back to Earth University to shower, have dinner in the cafeteria then relax with our group of missioners,  share our thoughts from the day and have evening prayer. Our last day in Estrada will be a Fiesta with the congregation and people of Estada - all are welcome. We will save a day or two for fun. This year we will head out to the Pacific Coast to explore the Manuel Antonio National Park and enjoy the beach.

Over the past ten years, those of us who have had the opportunity to participate in the Mission trips to Estrada in Limón Province, always return with a sense of having done God's work, along with wonderful memories.

Our next Mission trip will be February 17th –February 24th, 2020. Please consider joining us.
