We just finished up our 'winter' camping season here at Roblealto.
Yes, winter. We know, we're still above the equator, but here it's
rainy season and the temps are cooler. We do have to laugh when we see
people with wool hats, scarves and mittens on in balmy 70 degree weather
Our primary ministry is to los jovenes, the young adult
volunteers at camp. We get to invest in them so they can than impact
others. As camp is over for the "winter," we are now focusing on special
events for the volunteers, discovering new ways to connect with them
and provide them with biblical training and beginning to think through
the next camp season that starts in January.
We are so very grateful for the prayer and financial support from you
all! By supporting us, you are helping to impact the next generation of
Costa Rican leaders with the message of the Gospel.
Noah was able to spend some time with
Daniel, one of our former voluteers, who now serves as a missionary in
Costa Rica working with impoverished kids. It was a good time of
catching up and Daniel commented he learned so much from Noah in just
the short time he knew him and was grateful for his work at Camp.
Hard to believe it was just about a year ago that we were
given the green light to move back to Costa Rica. We're so thankful to
have partnered with many of you to be part of the work that God is doing
here at Roblealto. However, in this last year, we've seen our support
level drop to about 92%. This works out to about $500 a month. Would
you pray with us about this? And if you have been wanting to get in on
what God is doing at Camp Roblealto, let us know! You can also donate

Our July camping season was a great two weeks of fun, mud,
laughter, and sharing the Gospel with kids from all over Costa Rica.
Check out the action with these videos from High school camp, Elementary camp and Preschool camp (and look for two super cute white kids in the preschool video)
There were several kids who came to Christ over the two
weeks of camp, including one girl who had attempted suicide before
coming to camp! Praise God! Noah was able to spend valuable time with
the volunteers including 6 brand new ones which was a big answer to
prayer. He washed dishes and weeded plants alongside them, as well as
taught the Word and encouraged them while they worked long hours during
the camp season.
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.
