    We will be working on a parsonage being built for a church in Changuena. We will not know what phase of the building process the homes we work on will be until we get there, so be prepared for any and every aspect of the building process. We might be tiling, painting, installing the ceiling, or wiring. If the parsonage gets finished, we might start work on Sunday School rooms. (NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED)-
  • Purpose:
    Photo From Belize Mission TripThe primary purpose of this trip is to serve our brothers and sisters in need, and also be served and enriched by them. We will go to Costa Rica with the expectation of living among and getting to know the people with whom we are working, and with the expectation of getting to know ourselves and our God a little better as well. Worship/devotional time will be an important aspect of the growth of this team.
