Resurrection Costa Rica

Samaritan Hands is bringing Resurrection to Costa Rica! We are looking for students to help participate in a Servant Leadership team will help facilitate and participate in Resurrection Costa Rica. The team will travel to Costa Rica October 7-14, 2019 to help facilitate and participate in this exciting event.

We will be staying in La Fortuna, near Arenal Volcano. During our time in Costa Rica, we will have an opportunity to share our Christian faith and commitment to Christ and His Church.

Team members will be expected to share their experience of God’s love and why they are making a trip such as this. If you’re interested in joining this team, please send us your email address and level of interest via this form.

eGiving Update has recently overhauled their entire eGiving platform and we have updated our website accordingly. The giving site now has a new look and provides many more features for both donors and Samaritan Hands. If you have any questions about using the new platform, please contact us and we will work with you and eGiving to resolve it. We are so grateful that this tool allows our donors to give conveniently and the funds are able to get directly to our ministries faster.
