Virtual Costa Rica: Fall 2020
Every Tuesday, from 09/29/2020 to 10/20/2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Date: Oct 20, 2020
In 2006, HPUMC initiated a partnership with Ray and Lidia Zirkel, Methodist missionaries serving in Costa Rica. They witnessed first-hand the over-crowding of state facilities and realized the potential of an alternative model for orphan care. Instead of expansive, institutional structures with still too few beds, Ray and Lidia wanted to provide a place where the children would be nurtured in a Christian family environment. HPUMC has embraced the dream by providing significant financial support and sending multiple teams each year to serve alongside the Zirkels and their ministry team.
This year, we cannot travel to Costa Rica but the children of Hogar Metodista need us more than ever. You can learn about the work of the Zirkels in this virtual experience. You can learn how you can support the Children’s Home during this season AND you can learn how you can serve and be a missionary right here in Dallas.
