Costa Rica: Exciting Mission Team Update!
Right now, Josh & Anna Dunagan, directors of Gospel Projects International, are leading a mission team to Costa Rica, Central America, from our family’s home church, Covenant Hood River, in Oregon. The team is meeting up with missionaries at a Youth With a Mission base and throughout the outreach, they will be ministering San Jose and Orosi.
Newest Update from the Team:
Mission Report from Costa Rica:
We are all doing great and we have been having some wonderful times of ministry.
Yesterday we ministered at a home for underaged motherers and their children (some of the mothers were only 14 years old) and today we visited an orphanage for disabled and abandoned children. Also, at night the women have been downtown in San Jose ministering to the prostitutes.
All is well and our team is challenged by the needs we see. Tomorrow we will be going to the small village of Orosi to begin our Bible distribution project. Thanks for your prayers and support. We look forward to sharing a good report of what God is doing when we get home next week.

We go tonight to bless the ladies [prostitutes] on the streets. How wonderful and peaceful this YWAM base is. We feel so priviledged that we were sent. Thank you to everyone.” –CAROL, first international mission trip
Here’s the Overall Vision:
We are taking a team of nine people from our church in Hood River, Oregon, to Costa Rica on July 26th. The main reason we are going on this outreach is to help with a large Bible distribution project that has a goal of distributing a Bible to every home in Costa Rica. Specifically, we will distribute Bibles in the small town of Orosi. We also plan to serve on street ministry teams (ministering to the prostitutes and homeless in the capital city of San Jose) and help with children’s outreach programs. This is exciting for us because it’s the first group mission trip that we are leading together.
Keep the team in your prayers . . .
Please remember to keep us (and the rest of the team) in your prayers while we are on this mission outreach. The nine team members are of all ages, and include Josh & Anna Dunagan, Shannon, Tia, Mallory, Mark Dunagan, Gabi, Carol, and Anna B.
