The 10 Step Process

 
 
 
GTD's Mission Program is made up of short term mission trips focused on reaching out with the love of Christ to those less fortunate. Each trip lasts 3-14 days and is centered around community outreach & service projects. Currently GTD offers domestic mission trips to hurricane affected areas and international mission trips to Costa Rica. Our Costa Rica project is an exciting multiyear endeavor highlighted by our construction projects that will eventually include an orphanage, medical center, fish farm, distribution center, and GTD's MOAB (Mission & Outdoor Adventure Base). And, of course, it wouldn't be a GTD event without thrilling adventures during your free time. Sign up today to be a part of GTD's missions program. And please check our ADOPT-A-NEED list for current supply needs.

ABOUT THE MEALS
In general, almost all Costa Rican meals (including breakfast) include black beans and rice (gallo pinto). This simple, standard dish, often referred to as comida tipica, is the backbone of Costa Rican cuisine. Costa Rican meals are generally quite healthy and are often times served with a good portion of fruits or vegetables or both, the meals are very well rounded and generally high in fiber. Food staples include carne (beef, sometimes called bistek), pollo (chicken), and pescado (fish), and taco style meals.
