Youth Mission Trip to Costa Rica was a dream!

Thanks to all for your big prayers and support for Trinity Youth to head on a very special international trip to Nosara, Costa Rica! 

DCE Erica and DCE Mark took 10 students to build a home from the ground up for a Pastor and his wife who did ministry in the area.  Louis and Viki lived in a small shack with a tarp for a roof.  Now they have a home that will be able to allow them to do huge ministry for the Lord.  Praise God!!

We also went through the entire book of Romans during our devotion time at night and were able to spend some time on the ocean and enjoy some Costa Rican cuisine.

The students were able to see God in action through others, to get outside their comfort zone and to work hard to achieve quite a feat!

What an incredible week!!!

Along with the prizes for pledges received, our students have also been issued challenges to earn extra recess time, non-uniform days, and for every student that receives $150 in pledges, they will have an opportunity to throw a pie at the teacher of their choiceOur target goal is to raise $30,000 that will go toward the beginning phases of playground improvements, as well as portions to our Grant-In-Aid program and technology.

Students also have been experiencing an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! An English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters.

There is only a few more days to raise funds – please help our school by reaching out to sponsors and share your students pledge page via social media. Also, be sure to ask your employer about any “matching funds” programs they may have!
