Rice and Beans MinistryAlajuela, San jose , Costa Rica
The goal at Rice and Beans is to go into all the world and make disciples of Christ. Because we study that Christ was always meeting people exactly where they were then calling them out into a faith that grew them and transformed their lives, we strive with each action that we do so that we will meet people where they are and help lead them into a faith of Jesus Christ. Meeting the needs of many people often begins with meeting their needs of hunger through the flesh, then meeting their spiritual hunger through the Word and Prayer. Rice and beans are a staple food of many South and Central American cultures, therefore they give a perfect avenue to meet many needs for families all across the regions. However, simply providing food for families is only the real beginning of what Rice and Beans is all about. Throughout the year, various construction teams build new churches, houses, classrooms, and many other structures that enable the people of Costa Rica Day camps are formed so that the children have the opportunity to do what children do best, play. The food bags helps reach out to the local community in a passive way. We take members from the local churches with us on the food and prayer ministry to build relationships with the local community. We feel and believe the only way to change the world is to change our self first and then work on our local communities and neighborhoods . The food bags consists of 2 kilos each of rice and beans, 1 kilo masa and a bag of powdered milk. Many times the teams add bibles and other things for the children.
