Snapshots from Costa Rica


World Methodist Evangelism lives and breathes in spaces – well, all around the world. It is a privilege to worship with sisters and brothers from a multitude of contexts.

Recently my travels took me to Costa Rica, the site where we’re excited to begin the planning process for an international conference for young adults in 2017.

I was excited to see all the progress made on the Methodist Children’s Home in just four years. The girl’s house is named Casa Esperanza – Hope House.

As you walk in the Wesleyan pattern of prayer and fasting, remember to pray for Methodists who share your love of Jesus and walk with you in the company of the Wesleys – Methodists you may never meet this side of heaven who live and worship all around the world.
