2017 Costa Rica

FCC Church Team

Pastoral Friendships with Missionaries

Randy Smith, PhD

In July, 2017 Faith Community Church sent a team led by Pastor Randy to the Abraham Project in Costa Rica. Since phase 1 has been completed, some of the team worked on various maintenance projects. With the day care center running over 250 kids daily, including after-school care for school age children, we built manipulatives for the Minds in Motion program. Teachers were then trained in their use with the hope it will be integrated into the curriculum. The timing also worked out to help a missionary family with some final projects as they moved into their new home, including building them a kitchen island. Tammy and Randy stayed an additional week to help out with a large Vacation Bible School and to meet in a more pastoral friendship capacity with various missionary couples.
