“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’” –Isaiah 6:8.
My heart beats the same as Isaiah’s here. My constant prayer is for the Lord to send me out to make His name known. He has been so faithful to do so, and I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to go on mission again this summer. The time is finally here! Our team leaves in the morning to head to Costa Rica for a week. We’re asking you to please join us in prayer as we embark on this journey. We know that nothing is possible without Christ, and we need your prayer support! Here are some things that you could pray for on the trip overall:
· Pray that this team of missionaries carries the love, grace, mercy, and compassion of Christ and that they will be accepted by the people of Costa Rica.
· Please pray for Aby Prado of Score International in Costa Rica, an amazing church planter that we've partnered with in the Dominican in the past, that God would truly speak to him and use him to start a wildfire for the gospel in Costa Rica.
· Pray for God’s favor and provision over the Church plant efforts in Costa Rica, and please pray that He raises up Costa Rican disciples to become pastors.
· Please spend time praying specifically for each team member…

“For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and yourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.” -2 Corinthians 4:5-6.
