Costa Rica Mission

Rice & Beans Ministries

Join with the 2018 missions team to Costa Rica to help change the world one life at a time through prayer and support.

 When Fred Curry, ministry director, began mission work in Costa Rica many years ago, he became aware of how harsh life is for many of its impoverished people. What started primarily as a building mission expanded far beyond bricks and mortar. It became a more personal involvement with the people encountered in the villages and outlying areas. So many of them were hungry and ragged, barely sheltered, uneducated, and without hope of anything changing in their future.  And yet, many remained faithful to our Lord. 

Rice & Beans Ministries began to try to alleviate some of the suffering of these families. Groups began to deliver food staples as they made prayer rounds. According to Fred, "The silent mantra driving us. . . Matthew 25:40 - whatever you do for one of the least of these, you do for ME." 

Rice & Beans Ministries provides opportunities to sponsor families for ($12) to receive a food bag which contains 5 lbs. of rice, 5 lbs. of beans, 2.2 lbs of corn meal, and 1 bag of powdered milk which will feed a family of 5 for one week. The missions team has been preparing the bags by decorating them, praying over them, and writing personal notes to the families.  During the week the team will be hand delivering the bags to families and praying for their specific needs.  Rice & Beans Ministries are also involved with student and school ministry by working with 41 schools and building relationships with the students. The team will be sharing God's love and His word through VBS sessions with multi age level students.  

Facts about Costa Rica & The Goals

Over 25% of the population in Costa Rica lives in poverty (Less than $400 per month) and 60% of the 25% live in extreme poverty (Less than $30 a week).  Thru the combined efforts of Rice & Beans Ministries and our mission team, it is our goal to bring hope through visitation and the food bags, to bring faith to the families by understanding how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and to express love to each person that we come in contact.
