The Abraham Project is located in Tres Rios, Costa Rica which is only forty-five minutes from San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. Four out of every ten people living in poverty in Costa Rica are children twelve years old or younger. The Abraham Project seeks to serve the community by providing a multipurpose building for the community to gather, children’s homes for at-risk kids, daycare services, and life-skills workshops. Your team will partner with the Abraham Project and be extra hands to help with the ongoing ministry to the community. Come with a willingness to learn from the children and staff you meet, as they may have more to show you than you would expect!

Trip Details

All of our teams serving in a short-term capacity are trained to do so with a long-term view. TTW's desire is to encourage the full-time missionaries in their roles, providing them with extra hands, fellowship, and oftentimes as respite from the long, hard work they do on a daily basis. Therefore, our service is viewed less as "look at all that I can accomplish" and more from a heart of "in what little ways can I be a blessing."

Your team will get to know the children in the ministry-run daycare and children's home by sharing Bible lessons, playing games, and teaching English as you help them sound out new words. You will also assist with ongoing work projects around Abraham Project's facilities.

Each day will include the following components and typically follow this schedule:

-Wake-up

-Personal Quiet Time/Devotions

-Group Devotions

-Ministry/Service

-Lunch

-Ministry/Service

-Rest/Shower

-Dinner

-Evening Reflection

Most teams will have one day set aside for sightseeing or shopping for souvenirs that will typically take place towards the end of the trip. Each teams also spend one of their last days in a time of debrief to prepare them to return home and reflect upon all that they have learned through their experience.
