The missions team did an awesome job in Limón despite very challenging weather. Sometimes it would rain “buckets” and the rest of the time it was very hot and humid. But they persevered and the gospel went forward. Our team consisted of 24 Americans (8 from WPCC) and 20 Costa Ricans. In all, 800 people were served in the clinics, nearly 600 heard the gospel and more than 320 received Christ as their Lord and Savior. Also, three house churches were started and two smaller churches were strengthened.
Our prayers now are with the pastors and their teams who must do the follow up in the next 30-45 days. We also pray that we will not forget God’s faithfulness and the stories of miracles that came from this trip. It is a privilege to watch Him work and see Him change the lives of all who are touched by Him!
Missions: Local and Global
As Christians, we're called to share the good news of Jesus with others, "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," (Matthew 28:19b). We're to "make disciples of all nations," and that's what we long to do.
We desire to reach our local community, and one of the ways we do this is through our Storehouse Ministries. Click here to learn more about Storehouse and how we want to serve Teller County.
"All nations" includes the United States, so we support many missionaries right here in the U.S. We have missionaries who work with students on campus, people who are planting churches, men and women working with the Navigators to train and support missionaries, and several involved in counseling and refreshing missionaries who have come back from the field or are on furlough. There is a great need for the Gospel right here in our country.
Foreign missions is a priority for us. We have missionaries to Kazakhstan, Namibia, Nepal, and Costa Rica. We support missionaries living in some countries, and organize annual short-term missions trips to assist their work. We want to take part in the spreading of the Gospel to all parts of the earth.
