Spring Break Costa Rica Mission Trip Update

We are Discovering our Creator and Developing our God-given gifts by serving in Costa Rica this spring break! We leave on Wednesday, March 21 and will return Friday, March 30. Our mission and focus are to Do justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).

Eleven students from Mount Ellis Academy and Elementary along with eight adults from the Mount Ellis Community are working with Universidad Adventista de Centro America to minister to their campus and the surrounding community in Alajuela, Costa Rica.

We are doing some much-needed work on campus, providing a VBS program for local kids in the community, and visiting an orphanage to share the joy and the love of Jesus. For many of our group, this is their first mission experience. For others in our group, it is another opportunity on a long list of opportunities taken to serve others. Getting out of our own element and into the element of someone else is so important to develop our characters, to become selfless, and share in what we have. Thank you for praying for us and encouraging us as we grow in and share God's grace.
