We are home after a successful mission trip to Costa Rica!
Back in the States, upon our return home, we began preparing for ABINA’S 3rd Annual Chili Challenge at BBR. With the help of our volunteers and board members, we were able to get everything done in time for the event.
ABINA’S yearly fundraiser, held on July 19th, raised enough funds to buy the orphan’s home a larger size refrigerator. The new appliance will be delivered to the children and their care-givers before Christmas.
The new freezer was purchased by ABINA donors, in Costa Rica, as a part of our mission trip in April 2014.
Spring Mission Trip To Residence of Life, Atenas, Costa Rica;
Jeremy and Colette traveled to perform maintenance on the bunk beds and kitchen cabinets built in 2010/11.
Several of the kitchen cabinets, kitchen table, and one child’s bunk-bed. We were able to rid the furnishings from the termite infestation and spray for six months protection.
The funds used to replace the infested wood was paid for by ABINA’S donors.We tried to take photos to show you how important this mission was. If we had waited another year, the bed would have been a total loss. We learned that in the future, all of our wood work will need to have a preventative applied to them, on a regular basis. One application lasts six months. We will be back!
THE CHILDREN LOVE TO HELP WHEN THEY ARE ABLE TO….
ABINA DONATIONS WERE USED TO RESTORE AND REPAIR THE CHILDREN’S FAVORITE FORM OF EXERCISE…THE TRAMPOLINE!
