January has been a cold and icy month here in Oregon. As we write this letter our car is covered in snow (we haven’t been able to drive it for over a week) and the electricity has sometimes been out; but the weather hasn’t slowed us down! It has been a great past few weeks for Gospel Projects International and we’re happy to share the news with you.
Mission to Costa Rica!
We are very excited about an opportunity to go on a mission outreach to Costa Rica. During the past few months we have been praying for more opportunities for ministry, and we see this mission to Costa Rica as an answer to our prayers. Our purpose for this outreach is to assist a missionary family with a Bible distribution project and with street evangelism, as well as looking into opportunities for future ministry.
The total cost (including airfare) for both of us to go on this outreach is approximately $2,100. Please let us know if you would like to help with this project. Lord willing we will be heading to Costa Rica on February 9th and we would greatly appreciate your prayers.
There is so much more to report… the children we care for in India at Aasha “Hope” Children’s home are happy and well cared for and our national ministers continue to win many souls for God’s kingdom. Our Bible institute in India is also doing great. The 25 students who enrolled this year are in the middle of their 5th month of school, and we’re tentatively planning an outreach to India in May to be there for our first year graduation ceremony. We are also looking into many exciting opportunities for expansion, and soon we will share with you our vision and goals for this year.
Thanks so much for partnering with us to make a difference around the world. We believe 2012 will be a great year for our ministry and we realize that none of this would be possible without your help. We are thankful for this opportunity to minister in Costa Rica and we look forward to sharing with you a good report of what God will do on this outreach.
God bless you,
Josh & Anna
