Costa Rica | Summer 2012
Presented by Short Term Missions
We will partner with long term Missionaries and local churches to form teams for evangelism, construction, VBS, medical, clinics and tech support. Everyone has a place on the team in Costa Rica.

Serve in 1 of 8 different ministry types:
  • Wake up early for dawn patrol in Hermosa Beach, then lay the foundations of surfing and faith to kids at afternoon surf camp.
  • Touch people’s hearts through haircuts and manicures.
  • Bring health to their bodies through medical clinics.
  • Rebuild lives through construction projects.
  • Use crafts, snacks, and music to share Christ at VBS.
  • Participate in evangelism through sports or drama outreach.
Drawn by the allure of surf and beach life, many transients find themselves “stuck,” in need of a way out. Needy refugees have flocked to makeshift beach communities. The people living in the beach communities are ignored and forgotten.

Heromosa Beach: One of the top ten surf spots in all the world. Sister town to Jaco Beach.

Jaco Beach: While the surf and party scene give an alluring exterior, the barrios of this city are filled with poverty, drugs, alcohol, and prostitution. The Nicaraguans that have moved to Costa Rica for a better life are looked down on by nationals. Many are illegally in Costa Rica so they won’t get proper medical treatment for fear of being sent back to Nicaragua. Most end up in the barrios such as one that is in the river bed.  They remain trapped in utter poverty.
