Becoming who God calls us to be

Learning how to sew

At the end of November, Tina Yeager, Director of The Freedom Challenge, visited Costa Rica with a team of faithful Freedom Challenge supporters. One of the high points for the teams was visiting the Pearl Process, a Freedom Challenge-supported project run by Operation Mobilization.

The project teaches vulnerable women to make sandals and create mosaics (see photo above), skills they can use to provide a regular income for their family. It gives them secure employment and a place to learn about God and study the Bible together.

The women at the Pearl Process were privileged to have Sue McCabe (photo below), the wife of the CFO of Chick-fil-A, teaching them about customer service.

During the trip, the Freedom Challenge team took part in church services. Below, Sophia, Tina’s daughter (left) reads scripture at a church in Talamanca.


One of the themes that kept occurring and touching the lives of the women involved in the outreach was the idea of “changing from doing to being”.

Many of the women realized that they need to become who God calls them to be and be in an intimate relationship with Him before they can effectively do His work.
