Ministry Description

The ministry of Word of Life Costa Rica began with the arrival of Edgardo and Silvia Vidaechea in 1986. Marco & Fanny Jiménez now direct the ministry in Costa Rica. The ministry team has grown to include 5 full time missionaries. 6 Bible Clubs are currently operating in local churches. Sports marathons and events, musicals, and family shows provide unique inroads for evangelism into public schools and parks throughout the country. Youth camps are organized for teens during each summer season. In 1997, a 32 acre property was secured by the ministry. The land, called "The Hacienda," is currently being developed and prepared for near future youth camps, conferences, events, and activities. January 2004 was the first camp season, as the construction continues.

Country Description

Costa Rica is often called an "oasis of peace" among the neighboring countries of Central America. This 51,000 sq. km coastal country is known more for its natural beauty than its cultural heritage. It is one of the richest and most diverse biological areas in the world with wide variety of climate zones and extraordinary wild life. Costa Rica is famous for its exports of bananas and coffee as well as its highly developed tourism industry. Although nominal in practice, over 80 percent of the population of 4 million are considered Roman Catholic.
