The mission of St. Nick’s church according to Jesus’ “Great Commission” is to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
In keeping with that mission, St. Nick's has partnered with Rajesh and Amy Wankhade, missionaries in San Jose, Costa Rica sponsored in part by Score International. The heart of the ministry is dedicated to serving the women and children of the Barrio De Los Angeles Patarra San Jose, Costa Rica through a relationship-driven ministry. Many of the women and children suffer from the effects of poverty, abuse, addiction, and abandonment. Through this ministry, Rajesh and Amy provide the community with teachings of Christ through bible studies, worship and ministry classes and programs. The ministry is devoted to leading the women and children of the barrio to Christ, as well as teaching them vocational skills to support themselves and their families.
I had the privilege of serving on the 2019 team which was focused on serving the women. After great success, the focus in 2020 will be serving the children of the barrio. In partnership with Rajesh and Amy, the team will be leading - Roar life is wild God is good vacation bible study. Our hope is to share God’s love with the children teaching them stories of the bible to build confidence in themselves and help them grow in their relationship with God. Most of all, we hope to share Christ’s unconditional love for them and to let them know that He is with them in both the good times and bad.
Of course, we cannot do this on our own. We need help, lots of help! If you feel called to help with prayer support and/or with donations of clothing and shoes, please contact me directly! If you are led to help financially, please donate here or directly to St. Nick's church. I look forward to sharing with you all that God accomplishes on this trip.
