Costa Rica Mission TRIP
2021 MISSION TRIP IS POSTPONED UNTIL 2022
Our seventh Trinity mission trip was held January 18-26, 2020. Trinity sponsored this trip with the approval of UMVIM (United Methodist Volunteers in Mission). Lodging was at the Methodist Rural Center, located in Ciudad Quesada. Working with Mary Woods, Director of the Center, she and her colleagues determine the needs and where we can best serve with the people of Costa Rica. Our goal is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, working hand in hand with our Costa Rican Christian brothers and sisters offering projects and ministries that include construction, Vacation Bible School, and women’s ministries, and distribution of items such as Bibles, toys for children, reading glasses, etc., as they are available for us to take with us and hand out in the neighboring rural communities.
Plans for the trip in 2021 have been postponed due to the high levels of the virus cases, restrictions and limitations in travel and the logistics in trying to secure a team, complete the necessary forms, and make preparations. We do hope to continue to support the work of the Methodist Church in Costa Rica even though the trip will not occur.
The cost for the trip covers airline ticket, transportation in CR, meals, tips, lodging, leisure day activities, etc. Missioners provide their own funds for this trip. The team raises funds for the work project and ministries.
