Mission Trips are opportunities to expose students to ministry opportunities where people have physical and spiritual needs. As a result of participating in the mission trips, students not only help others, but also experience discipleship and spiritual growth in their lives.
Costa Rica Mission Trip 2012
The Costa Rica Mission Team returns to Costa Rica again to work the Knapps, missionaries with Radical Life Ministries. The students work in the riverbed community to do construction work and provide a Vacation Bible School for the children in the area.
About the Community
The Riverbed community is located in the beach town of Jaco. The community is labeled by a sign in Spanish as “Quebrada Seca,” which pretty much means, “dry crack.” The riverbed is dry except during the rainy season. Thus, the name is not a very nice name; however, over the last year or so, the people who live in the area have been calling it the “Rancho Biblico,” which is, Bible Ranch.
About the Missionaries
Thanks to missionaries David & Pamela Knapp and the other mission teams in the area, the community is now being identified with this new name. The “Rancho Biblico” is where the Knapps and others hold Saturday Kids’ Club, before and after school tutoring, and where mission teams like Calvary, have Vacation Bible Schools and other activities for the children. “Rancho Biblico” has become a true part of the Riverbed community of Jaco.
