'Educators on a Mission'
(June 2 - 9, 2015)
JOIN US! ...After all, what's holding you back?
Come together with your fellow teachers from the Indianapolis and Greenwood, Indiana areas to work with children in and around Uvita, Costa Rica!
Uvita is a quaint little town along the South Pacific coast in the nation of Costa Rica...it's small town living, but attracts a diverse group of people from all over the world! It's not uncommon to meet people from North America (the United States and Canada), as well as Europe, Australia, and even Africa! The world literally travels to this part of Costa Rica because it is so bio-diverse, beautiful, remote, and boasts whale-watching as one of its favorite spectacles for visitors during certain times of the year.
The local community, however, is often hopeless, sad, and living in various degrees of poverty due to a high cost of living in the area. Also, many of the gringos (white people) bring with them to the area lots of pagan beliefs, including New Age, witchcraft, and mind-body sciences.
More About the Mission
For this particular mission we will be using your educational skills to minister the gospel to schools in and around Uvita, along with other outreach ministries. As soon as our team is assembled, we will then work together to organize the finer details, including more outreaches/activities for the trip.
We will hold, at minimum, monthly team meetings to plan in-country activities and to get to know our fellow educators going on the trip.
There are lots of ways to raise the funds to go! Please don't let that detail stop you before you have asked us for ideas. As a team, we will also brainstorm together about methods for raising travel funds.
Finally! A platform where you can use your teaching skills to share the love of
Jesus with children and adults who definitely need to hear about his undying
love! It really touches the hearts of our local community when people come from
outside of the country to help meet their needs.
