2020 Costa Rica The Living Room Woodstock City
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Openhouse, this global(x) team will head to Costa Rica. The Central American country is known for its biodiversity, beautiful beaches, volcanoes, and hot springs. In many aspects, Costa Rica is a success story in terms of development. It's considered an upper-middle-income country, and its steady economic growth has helped it report the lowest poverty rates in Latin America.
We’re looking to build an energetic team that is ready to engage with local children and families. Since Spanish is Costa Rica’s native language, Spanish speakers will be asset to the team, but it's not a requirement. Translators will also be available. Serving this community will offer both physical projects and relational opportunities for all team members.
You’ll fly from Atlanta to San Jose, Costa Rica. From your hotel, it’s about a 30-minute commute to the community in Pavas, where you’ll be spending the majority of your time.
The team will work on school and community improvement projects like painting, renovation, planting, cleaning, and organizing. You’ll have the opportunity to spend time with the school children and their teachers as you and your global(x) team lead fun activities like arts and crafts, sing-a-longs, and interactive games.
Seeing the struggles and sharing the love of Jesus with the Costa Rican people is a humbling experience and one that you won’t soon forget. If you’re interested in taking this journey with global(x), apply now!
