On Monday Mike returned from Costa Rica. Mike was in Costa Rica for five-days leading eight people on an MTW vision trip to learn more about the ministry there. The MTW missionaries serving in Honduras took the group to see their ministries in San Jose, Costa de Pajaros, La Montana, and Nicoya. The missionaries serving fulltime in Costa Rica are working on church planting, discipling, and counseling in those communities.
Mike organized the eight participants ahead of time and helped prepare them and coordinate their travel. While on the ground Mike served as a helper to the fulltime missionaries. The participants in the vision trip where exploring how they or their churches could get further involved in the Costa Rican ministry in the future.
While we visited the different church plants Mike was asked to preach two Spanish language sermons, at two churches. It was a blessing to be used by the Lord while on this trip. Mike will be leading another group on a vision trip to Japan in March.
