In this vlog I go visit the most popular church in Costa Rica and other cool places in Cartago with my brother and my mom! I am not religious, but I love the architecture and the cultural value of churches. Link to David Mumford's work: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/David_Mumford/Night_Moves/ Link to the history of the church I visited today: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica_of_Our_Lady_of_the_Angels,_Cartago
Daniel and Sarah Barrett talk about their missions work and calling in the coastal town of Jaco, Costa Rica and the launching of the international, English speaking Horizon Chuch. Horizon Church at http://horizonchurchjaco.org supports the local community and other local missions work such as Hearts for Jaco, Seeds of Hope and Mission 58:6 Casa de Amor. After 3+ years serving in Costa Rica, their impact is reaching the world. Of special attention, the Barrett's talk about the work of Horizon Church in making a difference in the area of human trafficking in Jaco, Costa Rica. Bible Based teaching each Sunday and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is at the heart of the Barrett's and Horizon Church.
Tour of the Catholic church in Costa Rica, what you see towards the end is people crawling/walking on their knees towards the alter, the story behind this is that this church is known to be the most holy and sacred church in Costa Rica and people come from miles around walking from their villages just to make it to church, and when they get there, they have so much respect and commitment to what they believe that they crawl the last couple miles til they get to the alter. Now, the tradition is not as extreme but you will still see some people crawling to the alter as they walk through the church doors. its amazing to experience and see!

Thirty students from Watermarke Church in Georgia spent one week in July volunteering at Roble Alto and the Hope Center to help impoverished children in Costa Rica. The students painted walls, played with the children, and showed them the love of God.
Our Browns Bridge and North Point teams will serve with our partner church in Costa Rica, Openhouse, and an Intersect partner, Roble Alto. The team will engage in projects such as construction, painting, renovations, and organization projects. In addition, we will spend time connecting with the kids of Roble Alto Ministries through games and art.
what you see at first is a young couple (the father is holding the baby) who are about to get on their knees to crawl to the alter to have their child prayed for, the story behind this is that this church is known to be the most holy and sacred church in Costa Rica and people used to come from miles around walking from their villages just to make it to church, and when they would get a couple miles away from reaching the church, they would have so much respect and commitment to what they believe that they crawl the last couple miles til they get to the alter. Now, the tradition is not as extreme but you will still see some people crawling to the alter as they walk through the church doors. its amazing to experience and see!
A quick video of the church overlooking the main square in San Isidro del General, Costa Rica. It is a beautiful town square. During New Year's Eve they will have 25,000 people there enjoying the night of "beach" volleyball, free concerts, etc.
