Outreach to adolescents at risk in Costa Rica

1311Young adolescents growing up surrounded by violence, drugs, sex, street life and broken family relationships are the target for a support group begun by Missionary Edmundo and Deaconess Betty Retana. Six to eight young people gather for Christian education, help with school studies and assistance in looking for work in the job market. The Lutheran missionary team visits with parents to offer support and counseling.

By the grace of God through Jesus Christ, with the help of their church family, these young people will grow to be productive adults.

In addition to the love they receive in the program, they also need teaching resources and snacks.
