Sharing 'Faith' in Chilamate

In early July, Faith Lutheran Church of Coon Rapids, Minn., arrived with a group of 9 in its fourth visit to ILCO. Each delegation member brought a different talent to share in a variety of communities – from offering dental hygiene talks to children in Chilamate, playing with the ever-popular parachute with preschoolers in Casa Abierta, decorating foam hats with kids in La Carpio, and pulling out fence posts and stringing barbed wire in Chilamate.

At 9:30 a.m. on June 6, 2009, the assembly began with registration of the delegates and invited guests. ILCO Bishop Melvin Jimenez gave the welcome message, while the opening devotion was lead by Pastor Gilberto Quesada based on Nehemiah 5:1-15, emphasizing verse 11: “Give back to them immediately their fields, vineyards, olive groves and houses, and also the usury you are charging them – the hundredth part of the money, grain, new wine and oil.” This passage helps explain why the Lutheran Church of Costa Rica has been an active member of the process to create “10 Measures to Confront the Crisis with Social and Productive Inclusion” – a document created by various social organizations to provide concrete ways to mitigate the economic crisis while protecting the most vulnerable.
