PURA VIDA! That means the pure life! Pura Vida Missions didn't coin the phrase, the ticos (costa ricans) did, but they thought it was the perfect name for their mission and life in Christ. They believe that being a christian is not just a one-time event; it's a way of life. Jesus calls his followers to be like him and do the things he did. This means living a christ filled life. They believe that the good news of Jesus Christ is life changing and they trust that everyone who comes to serve will experience Pura Vida and return home forever changed.
Pura Vida Mission is an organization that works in San Ramon, Costa Rica year round to help with with the locals spiritual, educational, and financial needs. FUSE has a special opportunity to come alongside Pura Vida Mission by teaching the children Bible lessons through Campamento de Ninos which is Pura Vida Missions version of Vacation Bible School. We will be making a real contribution to the mission of Pura Vida as well as be impacted by the relationships we build and how Jesus is working in Costa Rica.
