OVERVIEW

Since 2013, h2o has been partnering with Iglesia Gran Comisión in San Jose, Costa Rica. They are a church that committed to bringing the gospel to their city and country. The church recently began running a development center in Barrio Mexico, a crowded neighborhood of blue-collar workers, students, NiNis (neither study nor work), single moms, and kids. Currently through the center the church is providing job training, GED classes, dance classes for kids, and educational workshops for adults and kids. Through this center, the church hopes to be an asset to the community, which in turn will help them share the gospel with the community. The itinerary for our trip is still being discussed, but most likely, we will spend the bulk of our time working with one of the development center’s projects and reaching out to the local community.
