    Latin American immigration is a hot topic in the USA today. Imagine, though, if we were 1,500 miles closer. If people only had to go 500 miles instead of 2,000. That’s where Costa Rica finds itself. Due to the presence of gangs and violence in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, many Central Americans in those countries have been forced to flee their homes to pursue safety and opportunity in places such as Costa Rica. As refugees settle into Costa Rican life, they are often rejected and refused work and lodging. When Laurel was 13 years old, she...

    An Introduction

    Rev. Bahago grew up in Nigeria’s Taraba State. He taught for several years in primary school before answering a call to ministry. He left teaching and became a student himself, attending the Theological College of Northern Nigeria (TCNN). There he realized the importance of sharing the gospel within and outside of Nigeria’s borders.

    After receiving his Bachelor’s degree, Rev. Bahago taught at Veenstra Theological Seminary for 10 years and finished his master’s in theology. He was then elected and...

    Throughout my life I have had the sense of God calling me to use my business skills in inter-cultural missions. This sense of calling has deepened through past experiences with Central American migrant workers at various summer jobs, and through my time at Redeemer University. An essential part of being a Christian is to seek justice for the poor and oppressed in the world, taking various forms for each person. During my time in Costa Rica, I hope to love and serve God and others by using the business skills I have been given to do this, while...

    For many, the transition from high school to adulthood is filled with doubt and uncertainty. I am no exception. I have struggled for years to find my place in the world. Like many I have struggled to find myself. Often the fog of worry can cloud God’s plan for us. Recently however, I have heard whispers of God’s calling. I believe he wants me to help others, to bring his kingdom to our broken world. There are many ways I could accomplish this calling and I know my year of serving in Kyrgyzstan will cut through that cloud and further reveal God’s...

    The decision to move to Romania, away from family and friends, has not been an easy one; but then again, following God’s call rarely is. Since 2011, I have held a variety of positions working with youth in ministry and in outdoor education. When I interned with Fara Limite in the summer of 2015, I was enthralled by how Fara Limite and the New Horizons Foundation used outdoor education as a ministry as well as a catalyst for youth development and social change.
