Aaron and Cassie with their children – Micah, Mia, Merry, Manna & Mercy – are serving in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica building a new ministry at Campamento Río Naranjo.

1.) giving them evangelistic opportunities through camp programming, events and retreats.
2.) providing free seminary education for all of the AIBC pastors (80% have no formal training) through Timothy Training Institute and Third Millenium.
3.) providing pastors with a free discipleship program that equips them to raise new leaders, pastors, and missionaries from their own communities.
