What's Included

Overview

Small groups will join together to paint and renovate a large Education and Evangelism Center in the town of Limon. In addition to painting the interior and exterior of the large school facility, volunteers will also conduct local community outreach such as children’s ministry programs and health education.

The Multiple Group Project is an opportunity for small teams of 15 or less to experience a Maranatha mission project and train the leaders to head a project in the future. Participants with experience as a cook, spiritual leader, construction superintendent, team medic, children’s ministry leader, etc, are needed and will easily be integrated into overall group activities. All teams will join together for a large group experience while maintaining the intimacy of their own small group. Small groups may come from schools, churches, families, work groups, or other entities. Small Group leaders can register on this page. If you are an individual who is joining a small group or would like to join this trip without a group, please review the information brochure and contact your group leader or Maranatha for a different registration link.

Excursions
Snorkeling or White Water Rafting

There are two options for the excursion, and you’ll need to decide prior to the project which excursion you will choose since we will have to make plans accordingly.

  1. Snorkeling (Included) The first option is to go snorkeling. This is about a 1-hour bus ride from our hotel (the port city of Limon is for ships and merchandise, not for tourism). In addition to snorkeling, there is a national forest along the beach with walking trails. Lunch is provided and your participation fee includes this activity.
  2. White Water Rafting ($35 Extra) The first option is to go snorkeling. This is about a 1-hour bus ride from our hotel (the port city of Limon is for ships and merchandise, not for tourism). In addition to snorkeling, there is a national forest along the beach with walking trails. Lunch is provided and your participation fee includes this activity.
