RE: The Ministry and Mission in Limon
July 15, 2018
Dear Partners in Christ:
As many of you know from first hand experience of the sacred and holy work of Crosby and Sally Jane in Limon, we write to encourage your ongoing support
at this crucial time.
Through the living Christ they have touched the lives of hundreds of God’s children over the decades. You know the beauty of the land and challenge of the poverty in which many live. Yet there is goodness, joy, hope and love everywhere
in this faith community.
Remember the food, the housing, the clothing, the education, the worship and the living word of God we have prospered together for so many years!
To God be the Glory!
As I write we learn of torrential rains in Limon. And we know how these beautiful people find shelter deep in their faith and rebound from each adversity. We know the rich nature of the “pure life” of Costa Rica in which they live.
Yet rugged conditions produce unique challenges with mudslides and highways--roads of transportation. You know of the urgent need to upgrade the ministry van. You have heard of the continual education needs for the little children (whom Jesus loves so much!) And you are mindful of how important it is for Crosby and Sally Jane to come “home” on furlough to tell their story firsthand and be renewed in spirit.
Please take these things to God in prayer and respond as you are led.
Grace, Peace, and Love,
Austin and Diane
