New branding, expansion of our US and Costa Rican Office and Staff, and a growing restoration program are only a few of what LFI has been able to accomplish this year and we are even more excited for what’s to come in 2014! As the holidays approach and we wrap up an amazing year of growth at LFI, we wanted to share some of the highlights with you and say a huge “THANK YOU” for your involvement! Without your prayers and financial support we could not continue the ministries of LFI.
This year LFI has:
- Received Julie* into our restoration program and have begun to see transformation and healing in her life (See the side bar as to get involved)
- Facilitated interviews with trafficking victims to aid the US Embassy in Costa Rica
- Aided in the investigation of several trafficking cases in Costa Rica
- Trained over 30 individuals and multiple churches to further grow our street outreach in San Jose, Costa Rica
- Our staff in Costa Rica received an internationally recognized survivor care curriculum training, Hands That Heal; and will receive certification to train other care givers in this curriculum in the early part of 2014
- Finalized our Costa Rican legal papers to be officially recognized as a non-profit throughout all of Latin America
- Raised over $21,000 to purchase a ministry van for our outreaches in Costa Rica
- Completely rebranded our marketing materials and launched a new website
Again THANK YOU for your prayers and support this year. We are ecstatic about what the Lord has entrusted us with this year and wanted to celebrate and share the joy with you. Stay tuned for a look into what’s coming in 2014 where we hope to bring further restoration and hope to the lives of sexually broken and freedom to those enslaved!
