In March, more than 40 individuals from around the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) completed a successful mission project to the city of Alajuela in Costa Rica. Nearly 40 short term missionaries, including twelve students from Auburn Adventist Academy, Portland Adventist Academy and Walla Walla University, conducted evangelistic meetings at 21 sites throughout the city. Women’s ministry leaders from the six Northwest local conferences each preached at a different site and also spent a day presenting seminars on women’s ministries within the North Costa Rica Mission. The project goal of 100 baptisms was surpassed with a total of 135 individuals accepting Jesus as Savior. Plans will be announced soon for the 2014 NPUC evangelistic project.
