Each year, Paradise Valley UMC provides opportunities for our congregation to participate in mission work outside of the United States. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about these exciting opportunities.
For several years, we have sent teams to Costa Rica and Guatemala. In 2014, the intergenerational teams included teens and seniors, men and women.
Team members have worked to build churches and clinics, provide programs for children, and offer medical and dental care.
Team members work primarily with two faith-based communities, the Latin America Biblical University, where they help construct student family housing, and the United Methodist Children’s Home, building group homes for orphaned children in San Jose.
