Costa Rica

Overview

Come serve the people in Costa Rica as we work along-side the Christian Life Movement and their missions around the country. We will be serving the homeless in the streets around the city, as well as venturing into the jungle to those living in remote areas. The Christian Life Movement invites you into their mission while we minister to the people of Costa Rica. If you are looking for adventure along with bringing love and service to our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean, this is the trip for you.

Fundraising

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.

Testimonies

“My mission trip was life changing and taught me so much. I learned that there are so many other ways of life outside of my own, but that everyone desires a relationship with Jesus. Also, I learned to see Jesus in the poor and in everyone around me. I feel that after going on this mission trip, I am better equipped to share my faith with others, and I have completely opened my heart to God and His plan for my life.”

– Erica Carnohan, University of California, Santa Barbara

“This mission trip was if not the best, one of the best experiences of my life. I encountered Jesus in the poor and in those who I served with. In working with the elderly woman, I was taken outside of my comfort zone, but with Jesus’s help I was able to serve and see beauty in everyone on the trip. FOCUS missions is wonderful at bringing students together, bringing them to Jesus in the poor, and bringing both beauty and excitement into the trip.”

– Former FOCUS Greek Mission Trip participant
