We are the Tatums- Bryan, Beth and our 17 year old triplets, Jesse, Kirsten and Drew (and Luci).
Our family is honored to serve a mighty God, who allows us to follow Him and serve the children, youth, adults and families of Costa Rica.
Our family moved here in 2009, and we did not speak much Spanish. Our first year was spent learning the language, the culture and the people. In our second year, we had worked in different areas, mainly rural, of Costa Rica, served as house parents to a chidlren's home, worked inside the prison, gave our testimonies, and served on a team traveling all four corners of the country to deliver Christmas gifts.
We are currently focused on serving communities by working inside the public schools. This enables us to share God's word and love to the children. Through this we are able to work with the youth and parents in the area.
We work inside the schools by: Teaching English, giving weekly Bible lessons based on the Virtues and Special Play days.This has given us the opportunity to work with the teachers and is opening the door for monthly parent classes.
We are able to lead short-term teams that help in many areas- medical, Bible classes or presentations for children, youth, adults or families, light construction for the public schools, praying for communities and families, offering free services to help enrich a community.
We assist the youth in our church by helping the Directors with their weekly meetings, special ministries, mission trips and camps.
Beth is co-leading Celebrate Recovery and giving individual coaching to the women in Buen Pastor, a womans prison.
We are able to assist communities by supporting their local churches through trainings, weekend promotions, concerts, medical and dental care, Bible lessons, crafts and games for the children, Bible lessons for the youth, adults and families.
We would love to have your prayers in these different ministries. If you are able to financially support these projects, please click on Donate On Line, which will link you to The Mission Society, in Norcross, Georgia.
