Agency — Word on the Street
Location — Costa Rica
Ministry — Church Planting and Evangelism
Rick and Judith were involved in international church planting with Calvary for more than 25 years — first in Europe and now they are serving in Costa Rica. Rick has multiple sclerosis and now serves primarily in a pastoral role with the elderly in a residence for geriatric patients.
Judith is continuing their lifelong mission of evangelism serving poor and at-risk families, especially women and children involved in the sex trade in the Orosi Valley. This rural area where work is very hard to find has made families vulnerable and she is developing opportunities for meaningful work for the women.
Each year Judith provides opportunity for the youth group to partner with her in a two week outreach of various events in the local elementary school that will reach and engage the children that attend.
