As missionaries, people often ask us about the sacrifice it must have taken to move our family to a foreign country to serve God. In the course of the conversation, they usually say something like “I could never do that”. This often makes us feel uncomfortable for a few reasons, one of which is that it feels like we are being put on a pedestal for our obedience to God’s call, kind of like we are a hero or something. While we understand and appreciate the sentiment, we don’t see ourselves in that way.
We are doing what we do on the mission field by the grace of God. We wanted to take this opportunity to express that, in our minds, those of you who stand beside us are living legends! You know who you are! You have chosen to quietly support the work of God in Jaco through your prayers and financial giving. You are the ones who are behind the scenes making what we do in Costa Rica possible.
While we often get recognition for the work done as missionaries, we recognize that we could never do it without you standing beside us!
So We Want To Say “Thank You”!
- Thank You for continuing to pray and support us while we accomplish ministry work in another country for the past 10 years.
- Thank You for making sacrifices in order to provide for our needs.
- Thank You for making it possible for us to pastor a church of people in Jaco who are so thankful for our shepherding.
- Thank You for your love towards God, towards our family, and towards the body of believers in Jaco whom many of you have never met.
We pray each of you is richly blessed this Thanksgiving and Christmas Season, just as you have been a tremendous blessing to us!
With Much Love and Thankfulness,
The Lawrence Family
