Mission and Ministry in Costa Rica

Due to the high cost of properties a small home is rented as a worship venue in Costa Rica. LCC pays the building rent and covers Pastor Edmundo’s stipends, transportation, mission resources and expenses.


I want to support Mission and Ministry in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica Diaconal Training

As the Costa Rican mission prepares for the future, Pastor Edmundo has requested that LCC provide formal diaconal training to a few gifted young people in his congregation who are currently assisting him with the work of the parish and mission.


I want to support diaconal training in Costa Rica.

Community Children Feeding Programs

$1.50 can provide a substantial and healthy meal for a child in any community in Nicaragua. There are groups of anywhere from 40 to 80 children in each of the Central American feeding programs where the children hear Bible studies and learn the Small Catechism. A deaconess and pastor lead the programs while the children are fed once or twice a week.


I want to support feeding for the children of Nicaragua.

Central America Regional Leadership Training Seminars

This project will provide continuing education seminars for pastors and deacons/esses serving in Central America. A short term seminar held at our Nicaragua seminary is around $2500 USD, including transportation, room/board and materials. Our hope is to offer, at least, four seminars per year.


I want to support the pastors and deacons/esses serving in Central America.

Youth Education in Costa Rica

Missionary Edmundo Retana reaches out to 20-25 children/youth in two communities in Cartago, Costa Rica, gathering together for Christian instruction and worship. Several youth retreats are held each year; these have become great opportunities for nurturing the youth of Cartago in God’s Word.


I want to support the youth education in Costa Rica.

Project 1912 Goal: $6,500

Children’s Education in Nicaragua

Funding is needed to ensure that the 60 children attending the program in 2019 will have the backpacks, notebooks, and educational resources that are included in the $120 USD cost to cover each child’s scholarship.


I want to support education for children in Nicaragua.

Project 1903 Goal: $9,500

School Desks and Chairs

100 desks and chairs are needed to support the children attending feeding and educational programs throughout Nicaragua. Even a small contribution can make a big difference as $15 buys a chair and $35 a desk.


I want to support the children of Nicaragua.

Music Program for Children and Youth

Children and youth receive musical training to learn to play instruments, allowing them to actively participate in their congregation’s worship services. Keyboards, guitars, speakers, microphones, band equipment, music sheets are needed. The project also provides funding for transportation and meals when training is taking place.


I want to support the music program.

Project 1905 Goal: $5,000

donate

Computer Training for Deaconesses and Children

This program and its materials and resources are largely funded and led by a Canadian volunteer, significantly reducing the overall costs. Your support is needed to help the deaconesses and students reach the Chinandega mission centre where they can benefit from the leadership and training being provided.


I want to support computer training.
