Costa Rica Mission Trip (Biblica Uncion y Fuego) 2019
Biblica Uncion y Fuego Children’s Christmas Project 2018
I want to share with everyone how Pastor Luis is using the money sent by Luther Memorial for the Children’s Christmas Box project. He is using a two-step approach. In his current ministry he is using the AWANA program to teach the gospel message of Jesus to the children of his church. This program awards achievement of goals in reading and memorizing bible passages. Those successfully fulfilling their goals were invited to a special party last Sunday. This included a puppet show, singing, playing games, having a meal in the new kitchen, and receiving gifts of candy, fruit, a t-shirt, and a surprise wrapped gift. Pastor Luis sent a number of pictures of this event which can be accessed per instructions below. There were 42 children in attendance at this event.
On December 15 Pastor Luis and team will host a similar event for other children in their neighborhood who are not yet involved in their AWANA program. They are hoping to attract another 30 or more children to this event.
This is the message Pastor Luis asked me to share with you:
” We are so grateful to all of you at Luther Memorial Church. This is only possible because of the money you have given us. I just do not have the words to express my gratitude. I do not know how to demonstrate how grateful I am. All of us here send you greetings, hugs, and kisses. We are overcome with emotion and gratitude.”
LMC is supporting the Biblica Unción y Fuego church in Costa Rica through a Christmas Box program this Christmas season. We are collecting funds to send to Pastor Luis (sending the boxes was difficult with transport/import tax, etc.) Monetary donations need to be received by November 18th. This is a great way to help spread the Love of Jesus to the C4 during Christmas, and many children will be blessed.
Luther Memorial Church served the Continent by sending LMC members to Costa Rica in August, 2018. Below are the daily updates from the ministry that happened there.
