Costa Rica Kairos

Last year, my husband Jess and I felt the call to travel to Costa Rica and serve at a Kairos in a women's prison there. It was amazing and scary and we had no idea how much it would bless us and our entire team.

This year, our family is planning to move to Montomery due to a military job transfer. I was sure we would be unable to return to Costa Rica no matter how much we wanted to because of how hectic our life is right now.

However, it kept tugging at my heart. Finally I prayed for a definitive answer and I got it. I heard very clearly: "Do you trust me? Then go."

So now I am joining the Ford's Chapel Costa Rica Kairos team very late in the game and I need your help! I have to raise $1,500 by January 1. I appreciate everyone who has supported me in the past. Every little bit helps. And if you donate before the end of the year, it will be deducted from this year's taxes! Win-win!

And please pray for our team!!

This endeavor is exciting and scary but I have decided to trust the Lord in what I believe He has called me to do. Please prayerfully consider supporting our mission to change the lives of our brothers and sisters in Costa Rica.


"When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?" The King will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

Matthew 25:39-40
