Mission Purpose: Construction of a site that is determined by Costa Rica Missions Project.  Since 2003, we have sent mission teams to participate in projects to help the Methodist church in Southwest Costa Rica. We have participated in building two parsonages, two Sunday school classroom buildings, a home for the District Superintendent and the rebuilding of a Methodist camp near Rio Claro. Check back to see what exciting mission projects we will be a part of for this trip.

Between  mid-February and late-March: four team meetings were scheduled for our Costa Rica mission team for discussion of the book everyone was required to read and for building relationships before our trip.
