SI Costa Rica staff

Happy New Year from Costa Rica! As we look forward to a new year of ministry opportunities, we also look back on 2012 and can see God’s hand touching and transforming lives. God is at work and it is a privilege to be eyewitnesses of his power.

Ministry Sites

We have watched as the sports site, along with the women’s social work/microbusiness site, came alongside a young teenage couple, Byron and Fiorella, and empowered them to continue their high school education while raising their newborn son. We cheered in December as the children at the Tutoring Center one after the other brought news that they had passed and would be moving on to the next grade in 2013. (Our school year in Costa Rica starts in February and ends the beginning of December). We celebrated at the Woodshop as the new students finished their first projects. We celebrated at the social services site to see children faithfully coming and learning to respect others and themselves.



We wrestled with our semester students and outreach participants about how to apply what God taught them in Costa Rica to their lives so as to continue to be instruments of change in their world. Through the ups and downs of life and ministry and the many challenges that presented themselves in 2012 God proved faithful and was at work bringing hope and transformation.

New for 2013
