Mission Trip

July 20-27, 2024
Thirty plus Uvalde Methodist Church members were part of a mission trip team to Costa Rica in June 2018 and twenty plus in 2019 in support of the ministry of Rev. Ray Zirkel. Their mission site was the Methodist Children’s Home located just outside the community of Coronado.
Preliminary work on the home began in 2007 and construction of the first home was completed in March 2011. The first children arrived in June 2011. Work on the second home was finished in April 2014. In just a few short weeks it too was filled to capacity.
The team worked on applying stucco to a multipurpose building which will add a much needed resource (especially during the rainy season) for the home. Additional projects included work building a perimeter wall to secure the facility and painting the fence line. The group hosted Vacation Bible School for a local Methodist church and for the children at the home.
Uvalde Methodist Church is again blessed this year to send a mission team to support the ministry of Ray and Lidia Zirkel in Costa Rica. Twenty-two mission team members will travel in July to work on site at the Methodist Children’s Home in Coronado. They will also lead Vacation Bible School for the area children as well as the children in the home.
Team members have made a personal and financial commitment to the trip. If you are interested in supporting the Mission Team financially, please make your donation to Uvalde Methodist Church and designate it “Mission Trip.”  For more information on the trip, please contact Sandra Cox at 830.278.3135. The team dedication will be July 12 at all services. Please keep this trip and the following team members in your prayers:
