Today we got to spend some time at the Villa, SCORE’s base. We had some time to relax after a busy week so far. Plus, we got to watch some of the FIFA World Cup game and see England score a great goal. We heard about the GAP Program run by SCORE. After a bit … Continue reading The Bread of Life
Today’s blog may not be easy to read. Indeed, it may not be easy to write. However, I believe that this one is extremely important, as it will give another perspective into the poverty of Los Pinos, a village Alajuelita, and the ministry that is going on there. I hope that you will read the … Continue reading The Pastor Who Did Not Want to Preach
This morning was adventurous and exciting. We started out by learning what was going to be going on throughout the day, which is where we learned that we were going to Alajuelita. At Alajuelita, we were going to start with a few games with the kids, which meant we were going to play soccer. This … Continue reading Alajuelita In The Rain
At about noon we ate lunch and the food was excellent. Then after lunch we headed to the first soccer camp where the girls went outside to play volleyball and the guys played soccer inside.

This morning, after eating breakfast and going over everything we would be doing today, we headed to the village of Alejualita. Walking into the village was a little terrifying. We had to walk on boards that held us over streams of mud and water, which contained things that we did not want to fall into. … Continue reading The Problems with Puppets
After a special Sunday morning worship service in Cartago, our team headed out for some sightseeing. We witnessed God’s beautiful creation when we visited Mirador de Orosi. It was breathtaking to look around at the foliage covered mountains, and at all the new (for me anyways) and unique flowers and trees. After stopping at another … Continue reading The Bread of Life
This morning went a little different than we had originally planned. Previously, we had thought that we would be attending a church and doing one song and maybe a skit. However, the night before we had been told that instead we would be responsible for the entire service of that morning. This gave us around … Continue reading Our Sunday Service
Saturday night we went to a church in the city of Cartago. Cartago is a city that is very Catholic. This church has only been a church for about six months. We were the first missionaries to go there and minister to them. It was a youth group of about 20. We arrived and spent … Continue reading Reaching Cartago for Christ
We enter to praise and we leave to serve. Thank you to a local Nazarene Church for this snazzy title but in all truth, this is our mission. We embarked on this trip to bring honor and glory to the name of Christ through serving his global church by supporting the ministry of Jordan. That … Continue reading We Enter to Praise, and We Leave to Serve.
