Costa Rica Ministry
FUMCFW began its ministry in Puerto Viejo, one of the poorest areas in Costa Rica, in 2006 with the construction of the Evangelical Methodist Church and Children’s Worship Center. The project has expanded to include work on a Children’s Home for orphans in San Jose, as well as a medical clinic for families in need in Puerto Viejo. During the lifetime of this ongoing project approximately 100 church members have participated in this transformative ministry. Their efforts have had dramatic impact not only on the lives of the people served in Costa Rica, but upon each mission team member as well.
Since 2006, six mission teams totaling 83 volunteers from First United Methodist Church, Fort Worth have traveled to Costa Rica to pour concrete, dig ditches, lay concrete block, paint, lay tile, tie rebar, lead Children’s Vacation Bible School, cook meals and worship with brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and grandparents who share our love of Christ. As always in a relationship it is never one sided, each mission team member comes away with a story, and a special memory of what they received.
