International Mission Trip to Costa Rica
In Merced, located in northern San José, a community center is dedicated to helping citizens who have been forgotten and underserved grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Backed by the local church, community and business leaders, this group of Christians are living out their faith by investing time identifying and equipping people who are involved in prostitution and homelessness; they also reach out to children and troubled youth. They provide courses and programs that help people rise above their circumstances such as: computer skills, GED, leadership development, among many others.
Many local people are currently involved with projects in their very own community. To date, the center has helped 200 families (1,500 people) in a variety of ways.
