Featured Missionary

Costa Rica STOMP Team
Student Ministries STOMP Team
Costa Rica
July 25-August 3

This Student Ministries STOMP team will travel to San Jose, Costa Rica, to assist a local church's outreach using the two hands of ministry: one, the hand of compassion, meeting the physical needs of those who are less fortunate; and the other hand sharing the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Costa Rica lacks a national foster-care system, so orphaned children often have no place to go. The church partners with an organization which helps meet the needs of orphans. In the mornings the team will spend time on work projects to strengthen the church's ministry, and in the afternoons the team will host a Bible club for children.

Please pray for team members Audrey, Grace, Katie, Zoe, Caitlyn, Cyrus, Emma, Hannah, Joshua, Lauren, Ryan, Nathalie, Bethanya, Lauren, Sydney, Mary Beth, and Ryan.

Prayer Requests:
1. Pray for boldness and clarity as students share the Gospel and strengthen the ministry of a local church.
2. Pray for team unity and a good partnership with the church.
3. Pray for spiritual growth in the lives of the students.
