About Us

Our family has served as missionaries in Costa Rica since 1997. We joined forces with the Abraham Project, located in a marginal community on the outskirts of San Jose. Our vision has always been to work with children who are considered “at risk” due to neglect and abandonment. We have built three homes to facilitate our work with these precious children. We are currently the directors of the children’s homes, and oversee their daily operation. Most of the children in our care will eventually return to their families, extended families, or be adopted nationally and internationally. We are currently at maximum capacity. We are so thankful that the Lord has provided amazing Costa Rican house parents to fill in as “substitute parents” for the children.
