Getting Involved

How can you get involved in this mission in Costa Rica?  There are 3 ways:

  1. Pray – Pray for your involvement in this mission in Costa Rica.  We are trying to raise up families to pray for us as we serve the Lord in Costa Rica, so please pray for us as well. 
  2. Give – If the Lord lays it on your heart to give please listen.  He may ask you to give during your prayer time.  He may ask you to give financially for our monthly support.  He may also ask you to give of your time and for you to go to Costa Rica.
  3. Go – If the Lord leads you to come to Costa Rica, then please contact us.  If He leads you to speak to a friend or neighbor, please obey.

The Lord has commanded each of us to be missionaries in a way.  He wants to spread His gospel through out the world.  That may be in another county or it might just be that you need to speak to a neighbor or friend.  Either way, we all need to be obedient to the command.  If the Lord has laid it on your heart to help us financially please contact either Global Outreach or us and let us know.  God can use all gifts to His ministry and multiply them for His glory just like he did with the loaves and the fish. 

If you would like to donate to this mission in Costa Rica you can:

  1. Send a check with “Jacob and Courtenay Folk Costa Rica” written in the For line to Global Outreach International,  PO Box 1, Tupelo, Mississippi, 38802
  2. Go to Global Outreach’s website to give online
  3. You can sign up for automatic withdrawal to be made monthly in your specified amount.  See GO website or contact GO.
  4. We are currently running about $1000 per month short, so please join us in prayer for God to raise up partners to join us!  Every little bit helps!!      864-641-0670

    Hola Courtenay and Jacob

    Congratulations for your newsletter.
    Currently I am helping a pastor Juan in the Tres Rios area half way between San Jose and Cartago , Costa Rica where there is an elementary school which students are mostly from the poor surrounding neighborhoods. In the past we have had american volunteer university students acting as assistants to the Costa Rican English teachers for a few weeks, Please let us know if you hear of any possible young Christian volunteers that would like to provide a missionary hand here in Tres Rios Costa Rica. There is also help needed in the surrounding communities.

    For further details please contact us:
    Julio or Pastor Juan.
    Tres Rios, Costa Rica

    What you are doing in Costa Rica is amazing. I would like to inquire about coming to Costa Rica in the summer of 2011. I am looking for a two to three month time frame starting in late June. I would like my son to have this experience with me which seems to be a problem for most organizations. I am wondering if you or anyone you know in Costa Rica would be willing to work with us.

    Hi Courtenay and Jacob. I really don’t know how I managed to stumble onto your newsletter but I did and the work you guys are doing in Costa Rica is truly amazing and great! I realized after reading this that Jacob and I attended the same high school and were in the same graduating class. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful it is to know that your family is across the world spreading the word of GOD! Thank you! Our family will be praying for GOD to guide you in your journey. Best wishes from our house to yours!
