Help Repair Ministry Van

The ministry van I recently purchased is in need of some repairs. This was expected as it is a used vehicle, trust worthy but use and age simply calls for some immediate repairs.

This Saturday I was returning from San Jose one of the rough mountain roads when I realized a bolt had fallen out that keeps the from tire in alignment. Thank God, a pin from the back seat fit in place of the bolt and I was able to get home slowly but safely.

While I am thankful for my gift and experience in for innovation I am trusting that God will provide the resources to keep such living and ministry basics as a reliable vehicle.

While in San Jose I meet with a Pastor of a church in the inner city of mostly young people. This is am amazing ministry of maturing young leaders being raised up for God’s kingdom, one of the special relationships God in entrusting to the WyldeLife Sanctuary. I am looking forward to filling my van with those young people for partnered outreaches!

This van is for the Kingdom, used for getting living and ministry supplies, ministry outreaches, often for community and family outings and on occasion to bringing people to the clinic or hospital. It is my primary means of travel during our rainy season allowing me to effectively function for ministry.

Will you help me pay for the repairs estimated at $1,000? Below are the most important repairs:

  • New tires $400
  • Oil leak $200
  • Front linkage $200
  • Door hinges and a latch, rubber seals, vent fan $200

Returning to the field – Costa Rica

Thank God, I have once again made it safely to my “second home,” La Gloria, Costa Rica!

My last two months were spent in the beautiful Pacific northwest and Montana visiting family and working to pay bills. Praise God I was able be there for my sister’s wedding and I had privileged of making her cake! I spent my days pouring concrete for MYG Construction in Helena and evenings with my family and friends. What a blessing to live in Costa Rica eight to nine months of the year and return home to a guaranteed full time job when needed.

Getting back into the ministry focus here in CR I have been assessing what what needs to be done and asking God to refine my focus. The vision for the WyldeLife Sanctuary of Costa Rica is large yet the purpose is clear, “Reach and Disciple the Young of the Nations to Reach and Disciple the Nations.”

I am preparing to begin a Bible study in my house applying the foundational discipleship materials which I continue to study. The invitation is to the local young adults and youth for worship, intercession and Bible study based on “His Foundation is in the Holy Mountains” by Cliff Willis an, introductory study of Heb. 6:1-3.

Please pray for God’s kingdom established and increased as I take steps forward in Faith! 

Spanish language study is another focus for this season. I speak enough to function, learned mostly by living in community; now my goal is to speak well enough to soon lead Bible study without a translator. If I decide on a language course I may be asking for funds.

Please pray that God will lead me to the most effective Spanish resources and courses.

Communications and construction planning are my other areas of focus now. Producing media, documenting the testimony and process of God in the in the ministry and then presenting it on social media and personal connections is a job in its self and an education for me. Because of the international vision this is a vital function of of our connection with body of Christ. The construction planning is to develop our ministry property, the facilities that will form the WyldeLife Sanctuary campus. This means becoming familiar with Costa Rica construction methods, resources and trusting God for favor and provision.

Please pray that God will give me the wisdom, relationships and the ministry funds for development.

Thank you all for your prayer and support! God bless you!
