As the days pass, and our mission trip to Costa Rica gets closer and closer, I’m amazed more and more at what a wonderful God we serve. He has moved mightily during the last few weeks to build our support team. He has provided every step of the way. I am in awe that He would choose to surround us with so many willing to pray for us and provide the means for us to make this trip to serve Him at The Brook Ministries in Costa Rica.
Again, I humbly ask you to consider giving of your time and pray for us during the weeks leading up to our trip and during our trip, and I also ask that you prayerfully consider supporting us financially.
Thank you all and thank our Lord God Almighty.
Re-post of our mission trip letter:
I am so excited to share with you an opportunity I have to serve the Lord this summer. I have been invited by The Brook Ministries to work with them for a week, helping at one of their pastor training conferences.
On June 19, I will fly to Costa Rica with my oldest daughter, Ariel, and my oldest son, Austin. Together, we will serve for a week at a pastor’s training conference working behind the scenes to serve the pastors from numerous Costa Rican churches. Ariel and I will return home at the end of one week, but Austin will stay on for another two weeks, helping with the beginning stages of the construction of a youth center called Casa de la Cultura. It will be a place for teenagers to come for discipleship and fellowship. Lord willing, it will help keep teens out of trouble and reduce teen pregnancy.
I am writing to ask for your support in two ways:
- We need a prayer team to support me and my family. We will be sending out regular updates from Costa Rica on my blog at https://thereasonsedge.wordpress.com, Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/rick.caskey and Twitter at http://twitter.com/rickcaskey, and I need a team of people who will be faithful to pray for me.
- We need help funding the trip. Time is becoming critical and we need to have our funding secured in the next couple of weeks. The entire cost for all of us will be $4,050.00. The total is made up of $1,500.00 for Ariel and I, each, and $2,550.00, for Austin. We’ve made it very easy to make donations directly online to The Brook Ministries (www.thebrookministries.org). Click “Donate Online” then select “Caskey Mission Trip” where it says “Please direct my donation to.”
Thank you for any support you can give. We are grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord, and we would love to have you on our team.

Because He First Love Us,
