costa-rica Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a beautiful Central American country known for its rich agricultural land, beautiful beaches and lush tropical rain forests. Since the 19th Century only two brief periods of political conflict have interrupted its development as a democracy. Much of the land is under agricultural production with coffee, bananas and pineapple being harvested in vast amounts. The countries infrastructure has been able to support growth in technology and tourism which has aided in the development of this Central American country. Spanish is the national language however there are small pockets of indigenous people who have kept their native language.

“...God has been showing me through the SI staff and the Dominican people what true ministry is all about. Ministry is about relationships, not just tasks; and even more than that it’s about being open to God using you in whatever way possible.”
