From Bob and Ann Jeffery, missionaries

Pastors Carlos Sandí and his wife Isabel enthusiastically and lovingly shepherd a church in Horquetas, a town about 1 ½ hours east of San José, Costa Rica. By God’s grace and through CEDCAS´s help they were able to buy a skating rink and turn it into an exciting, dynamic, spirit-filled, growing church! Last year you helped them build & pour the cement floor of a large classroom and outside it, a sidewalk. That room now has dividers in it, enabling them to make 3 classrooms but also use it as a larger room for other purposes. Last year, CEDCAS brought 3 dentists and assistants and an optometrist. The clinics are held for a day, once a month and we are able to see over 100 people including mothers, children, men and young people.

Pastors Carlos and Isabel have the people organized, with appointments every 15 minutes per dentist and during their waiting time, socializes and, in some cases, counseled with them. Several of them have never been in an Protestant church.

It was gratifying to be able to contribute to these wonderful pastor’s ministry and to know that your work for them has been so useful and rewarding. Thank you very, very much for your help.
