June 2015 Update/Announcements

Hello Friends,

May was an exciting month at Tamarindo Church.  A couple of highlights from the month were the Women’s Retreat and a visit from a group of 23 students from St. Francis University.


There were about 30 ladies who went on the women’s retreat this year which was held at La Carolina Lodge… about 2 hours away near Tenorio Volcano.

Horseback riding, hiking to a waterfall, natural hot-tub, fresh local food…. Needless to saythe ladies had a blast out in God’s creation and sharing these experiences with each other. And of course there were the meaningful times of sharing, bible study and prayer that the ladies had.  The group watched conference messages  given at the “IF: Gathering” women’s conference that was held in the U.S. earlier this year.

A special thanks to the worship team, to Stacey, Jen Snow, and to the staff at Carolina Lodge for making the event a success!


A second highlight of the month was that Tamarindo Church hosted a group of 23 Students from St. Francis University in acouple of local service projects.  With the $1500 the students raised, they painted two local schools (in Rio Seco and Los Pargos), and hadwindows and screens installed in the cafeteria of the school in Rio Seco.  Thanks to Mike and Keilyn Krepin for their efforts in organizing the event… and thanks to St. Francis students for your generosity and hard work.

We’d also like to say a pre-farewell to the Wells Family as they have sensed God’s call to move to Guatemala in July to explore ways to serve the poor there. This picture was on the day when Tyler and his son Landon were baptized here in Tamarindo… it was an awesome day. During their several months of attending Tamarindo Church…. Tyler and Celeste have served faithfully on Sunday mornings with our set up team, and Tyler has been with us every Friday night as well serving at Kidz Club.  Oh yeah… did I mention that they also volunteered in Children’s church as well.  You guys are awesome and we will miss having you with us!!!  THANK YOUR for generosity and faithfulness in serving our church community while you were here with us.  We know you will be a huge blessing wherever you end up serving in Guatemala.

And thank you to all of you for the many ways you support Tamarindo Church with your time, energy, talents, financial support and prayer.  We could not do this without you. Blessings to you all, and we hope to see you next Sunday at Church!

I thank my God every time I remember you.  
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now..”
~ Philppians 1:3-4


Grace and Peace to you,
Lyle  & Stacey
