Happy First Day of Spring and New Beginnings,

I wanted to reach out and ask if you know of any non-profit organizations helping migrant children in the United States?

Just as it may be with you, I am feeling overwhelmed with the surge of migrant children and God nudging me to do something.
It is the same way God nudged me to help Cherie prepare Residencia de Vida for the first children. It’s the same nudge I felt when He helped us start ABINA Ministries.

Cherie and I use to say, “If only we could bring Residence of Life children to the United States. How much easier it would be to care for them.”

Fast forward 10 years and 15,000 thousand children here in the U.S.A. and I’m pondering what to do.
I can’t talk with my dear friend Cherie, but I can reach out to you for your thoughts and prayers.
Please send me a message or leave a comment. I truly want and need to hear your hearts perspectives.
God Bless You All…please pray for the children caught in the middle.

¡Feliz primer día de primavera y nuevos comienzos!

Quería comunicarme y preguntarle si conoce alguna organización sin fines de lucro que ayude a los niños migrantes en los Estados Unidos. Así como puede ser contigo, me siento abrumado por la oleada de niños migrantes y Dios me empuja a hacer algo. Es de la misma manera que me dio un codazo para que ayudara a Cherie a preparar la Residencia de Vida para los primeros niños. Es el mismo empujón que sentí cuando nos ayudó a comenzar ABINA Ministries. Cherie y yo solíamos decir: “Si tan solo pudiéramos traer niños de RdV a los Estados Unidos. Cuánto más fácil sería cuidarlos”. Avance rápido 10 años y 15,000 mil niños aquí en los EE. UU. Y estoy reflexionando sobre qué hacer. No puedo hablar con mi querida amiga Cherie, pero puedo comunicarme con usted para escuchar sus pensamientos y oraciones. Por favor envíeme un mensaje o deje un comentario. Realmente quiero y necesito escuchar las perspectivas de su corazón. Dios los bendiga a todos…oran por los ninos!

A BLESSING IN A BED, TEN AGAIN, REFLECTIONS…..

We did it!

ABINA Ministries 2016 Orphan Project

In 2016, our Costa Rica mission’s goal was to build ten more beds for the expansion of (RdV) Residence of Life’s home #2, Casa de Timoteo, a group home for ten teen children.

We are grateful to all who participated in this project and look forward to what God has in store for ALL future projects.

Anyone with a heart for helping ABINA’S Christian Ministries and the children at *RdV, please ask how you can help or join us on our next mission.

ABINA BEDS!

There is no place like home, but our hearts remain with the children in Costa Rica.

Because of your  generosity and the support from other ministries and volunteers, 20 children call Residence of Life their home. 

VAYA CON DIOS
For 11 years, donors and volunteers have blessed ABINA Ministries with opportunities to serve the children in Grecia and Atenas Costa Rica!
Each year the Lord provides a way for our non-profit to raise the funds needed for our annual mission. Each mission allows us all, a chance to help orphans with their personal care and home furnishing needs.
Every day, we trust God to direct our paths, and breath new life into all we do and all who feel called to be His hands and feet! 

Con Mucho Gusto….


Some reflections and photos of previous mission trips:

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. 

One of life’s simple pleasures, a new freezer! They didn’t know it was coming until the truck pulled up into the driveway!

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!
