Posted in Teams on June 7, 2018 by abrahamproject

Stephen, Jr. & Kendra are busy hosting WinShape camps, a Chick-fil-A foundation. This week, the focal point of the camp has been Psalm 23. The children from our daycare have enjoyed games, crafts, music, and solid Biblical teaching in a safe environment.

Wet & Wild Adventure!

Posted in Children's Homes, Teams on July 14, 2017 by abrahamproject

After a dynamic week of VBS, the group from Grace Community treated the house parents and all of the children to a wet & wild field trip to a water park!  It was the first time many of our kids had been to anything like this.  It was a blessing for our houseparents as well, since the team members took charge of the children and watched over them all day long. The kids enjoyed themselves on countless water slides on the premises, the pools, and many different attractions.

We are so grateful for this opportunity to create special memories for the children!

VBS with GCC

Posted in Teams on July 14, 2017 by abrahamproject

Hey everyone, we are wrapping up an intense week of Vacation Bible School (VBS) with our friends from Grace Community Chapel (GCC) in New Jersey.  This week we hosted nearly 400 kids here at the Abraham Project, where they learned that they were created for a special purpose! The team came fully prepared with hip-hop dancing, arts & crafts, games, karate classes, relay races, balloons, and the incredible Word of God!

We began each day with group worship in both English and Spanish.

Every afternoon we closed up with more worship.  It was amazing to see God work in each open heart.

We extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to our friends from GCC and our staff here at the Abraham Project whose hard work, dedication, and prayers made all of this possible!

And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Matthew 25:40

Bowling Fun!

Today the team took our kids on a field trip … to the bowling alley.  Our kids had never been before, so this was a totally new experience for all of them!

Even the smallest kids enjoyed themselves.

  Afterwards, we had lunch and headed home.  Our house parents and the kids had such a good time we’ll have to go back soon!

VBS Camp with Team GCC!

Posted in Teams on July 4, 2016 by abrahamproject

During our mid-year break from school, the Abraham Project and Grace Community Chapel hosted a 4 day VBS Camp.  We invited all of the children in the daycare plus kids from our “barrio” (neighborhood) to attend this event.  On the first day, we received 400 children!  Needless to say, all hands were on deck!  The kids learned worship songs (in English and in Spanish), enjoyed some Hip-hop, crafts, sports, and more!  Thanks to our friends in New Jersey that come prepared and willing to serve our community of Villas de Ayarco!

Today we celebrated the 4th with our friends from the great states of Georgia and Tennessee!  We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, whipped up potato salad and baked beans, and topped it all off with dessert … ice cream.  It was nice to celebrate our country’s independence with two of our teams and the children in the homes!  God bless America!

Rincón de Osa

Posted in Teams on June 25, 2016 by abrahamproject

We’re back!  It’s been a couple of years, but with Southside Christian Church’s team we went back to Rincón de Osa in the southern pacific area of the country (a six hour drive from San José).  We returned to help Pastor Porfidio finish out their new bathrooms, wire the electrical, and finish up the roof.  In the 3 days we were there we got a lot accomplished!

We worked ….

Overall, we had a great time helping out our friends down south and it was a big blessing to all of us who participated.
