Costa Rica (AMG/MNN) — Clara Ruiz, a former AMG home office employee, now serves as a missionary in her native Costa Rica.

She and her husband Francisco minister to their community through various educational and discipleship outreaches and in partnership with a local church. Recently, five homes in the neighborhood of the students they serve were destroyed by a fire.

Clara, Francisco, and their church have been particularly instrumental in the effort to meet the families’ immediate needs for food, clothing and temporary shelter, and they are actively working to achieve long-term housing solutions. $1,000 is needed to invest in housing materials.

AMG’s Child Sponsorship program works to show the love of Christ while providing the tools for each child they serve to develop physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. By the grace of God, the result is Christ-centered transformation.

AMG International’s disaster relief ministry stands ready to provide desperately needed assistance when the need arises. AMG International has a long history of disaster relief. In fact, AMG was born in the 1940’s to help provide for the needs, both physical and spiritual, of war-torn Greece during and following World War II.

Clara ministers to women through Bible studies, and both Clara and Francisco are involved with reaching out to young people through Bible classes and agricultural training to give them spiritual and practical hope for the future.

Please pray for this community, that they would see the love of Jesus as demonstrated by the local body of Christ. Want to help? Click here.
