Missions work in Costa Rica.

Palmares, Costa Rica.

In 2008, my husband and I had a vacation in Costa Rica. We visited this local church and were made very welcome. Pastor Elmer Rojas and his family invited us to stay overnight in their home.

We were touched at the love expressed within their family and church. Although I know no Spanish, I recognised the worship songs!

We were impressed at the ways this church serves it’s rural community, offering a free gym and other services, teaching new skills and trades, redistributing food and clothes and so on.

All of these units were housed in The Palmares Vineyard Complex. Pastor Elmer and his wife showed us around. One large room, was full of local women busy working on sewing machines.

Over the years, some of these people have been drawn to Jesus and joined this church.

As part of our passion for overseas missions, my husband and I wanted to share this update Pastor Elmer posted a few months ago.

Many thanks in advance, for watching the below video and for your support and prayers.

  1. Oh my goodness! I visited the same church for a week of missions in 2009. I’m still friends with the lovely lady who hosted me in her family’s home. Small world. 🙂
