Dear friends & fams,
Along with a stellar group of people, I'll be travelling to Costa Rica to deliver gift-filled boxes to children in need, and share with them that they are loved, have purpose, and matter soooo much to Jesus!
Our team will also have the opportunity to visit and work with the Clean Cook Stoves program and learn how it is helping to prevent respiratory diseases through the use of safe, energy-saving stoves. Many families in rural Costa Rica cook their daily meals indoors over an open fire, and the frequent smoke inhalation can often lead to respiratory disease, particularly among women and children who are exposed to the smoke more often. Clean Cook Stoves provide a safe alternative to open fires by directing the smoke out of the house, consuming less firewood, and keeping the open flame contained within a stove.
All funds collected will go towards supporting this project. May God bless you richly for your generosity! :)
