Working in Los Anonos, Costa Rica and starting a Bible Institute in our home, where students will live with us. VAYA starts in January 2015.
EXPRESSING OUR HEARTS
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” ~ Jim Elliot
Now that I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me. ~ Psalm 71: 18
NEW PART OF THE JOURNEY - VAYA
We are still just ordinary people serving an extraordinary God!
We are raising funds to cover all of our expenses so that we can lower the price we need to charge students, putting VAYA within their reach.
6 young men will be living with us from all over Central America. We will be running a Bible Institute for them as they live with us in community. They will have jam-packed days with Bible Schoo using the IBAC curriculuml every morning, daily practice in ministering to the community of Los Anonos and serving in the community in practical ways, leading Bible Studies for the church and working with a nearby orphanage called Hidden Treasures.
The director of La Viña federation of churches in Central America is working with us to make this happen. VAYA is a legal association of La Viña in Costa Rica. We have MANY NEW NEEDS - everything from buying a van to transport the young men to projects and the orphanage, and do short-term missions, to buying larger pots and pans!
PLEASE PRAY FOR US THAT WE WILL HAVE WISDOM AND THAT GOD WILL MEET THE MANY NEW FINANCIAL NEEDS, SPIRITUAL CHALLENGES & LANGUAGE HURDLES.
