FAITH COMMUNITY CHURCH

Costa Rica Mission Team FCC just completed its 3rd mission trip to Costa Rica (05, 08) and again partnered with Faro Church. In addition to some time spent helping on the Abraham Project in a lowincome community in San Jose, we launched off on a new outreach. Our team, along with several from Faro Church, went to minister to an indigenous group called the Cabecar. We brought

clothes, some OTC medicines, candy, etc. to give out; painted their humble church facility inside and out; and had a church service together. The service was cool because it was conducted in both Spanish and Cabecar (no English except when people prayed). Our youth did a

series of vignettes dramatizing Jesus healings; Pasotr Randy preached; and we prayed for the sick. God ministered to our own team and we were able to be an encouragement to our church family there in Costa Rica.

LAY HANDS ON THE SICK - Our team was able to pray for several serious needs after worshipping together.

MEET PHYSICAL NEEDS - Thanks to generous donors, we were able to give away needed items.

THE GOSPEL IN DRAMA - Acting out the stories of Jesus was powerful. People were on the edges of their plank seats.

Vacation Bible School After a few years hiatus, we brought VBS back in full force. Over 50 different children attended throughout the week and around that many adults & teens that helped pull this off. Our goals were to see kids come to know Jesus (most people accept Jesus while young); to help children grow stronger in their faith and Bible knowledge; and to encourage families unconnected to a local church that God has something for them. Summer Ministry In addition to the rest of the good ministry that went on this summer, Kevin Quantz and Brian Laskowski headed up a garage rebuild
