Faithful Servant Missions Costa Rica – Teen Week

Faithful Servant Missions in Costa Rica serves as a Christian Community Center to the Bajo Tejares district of San Ramon. This very poor community of displaced Nicaraguans and Costa Ricans is rife with poverty, drugs, violence and despair. Serving this community by providing a wide range of educational, recreational and spiritual opportunities for both children and adults is proving to have a major impact on their lives. Our pastor leads the mission church and ministry activities for all ages which are dedicated to proclaiming God’s love and grace. Over 300 children and youth, as well as over 100 adults participate at the mission. Through the fruits of Christ’s love, the cycle of poverty and despair is slowly being broken and families are beginning to look to the future with hope.

For this reason, many CUMC members have developed deep relationships with the children and teenagers of Bajo Tejares, and the staff at the mission. Many members currently sponsor children or teens at the mission and have personal relationships with them formed during a single or multiple visits. CUMC sends two short-term mission teams to Costa Rica during the first two weeks of July, which correspond with their two-week school break.

What can I expect?

IMG_20140711_100339You will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica and take a one hour bus ride to Faithful Servant Missions in Bajo Tejares. The Mission houses the school and worship center as well as the dormitory for short term missionaries. Teen Week week focuses on a youth program for ages 12-18 including worship and teaching for four evenings as well as offering a women’s sewing ministry during the days (a ministry that CUMC started in 2011).  Both weeks offer small construction project opportunities, but particularly the youth week. These trips are ideal for adults, teenagers, or families with children at least 10 years of age.
