Mission Teams Update

The summer mission rush is now in full swing. We have already hosted twenty-three mission teams this year. God has used these teams to bring many blessings to the people of Costa Rica and Guatemala. They have built homes, conducted VBS, painted schools, given free medical services and medicines,taught English in local schools, passed out food and clothing, and so much more.

It's exciting for us to know that God has used 6:8 Ministries to fulfill our purpose. God has used us to strengthen and encourage the faith of over 200 team members from seventeen different churches and ministries!

This truly is a picture of God working all things together for good. We are awed by His provision and honored to be used in this capacity.

Alajuelita Church Plant

It's finally happened! God has called one of the mission team churches to plant a new church in Alajuelita. Evidence that God can use short-term mission experiences to make a long-term impact.

This past week, one of the mission teams spent time working on various remodeling projects at the church. The week ended with God bringing over 100 people to the Sunday service. After the service, the team hosted a cookout and served some of "the least of these". Some of those attending included the homeless, prostitutes, crippled, drug addicts, and gang members. Many attending left with new bibles, new clothing, and a new hope. To God be the glory for the great things He has done!
