PAULA ROJAS IN COSTA RICA- FEB & MARCH 2013 – PAGE # 1

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and
living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High
Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having
our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold
fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful-Heb. 10:19-23

Hello my beloved family in Jesus,
I send a big hello from San Isidro, COSTA RICA !!!!
Before I share with you some of the beautiful things that God is doing here since I came back in January, I would
like to share some thoughts on God's truth. I am reading through Exodus in my personal time and came to
chapter 28 which describes the way God design the Priesthood Garments, and how they were to be worn by
Aaron, as the High Priest and by his sons. Chapter 29 goes into the cleansing and consecration process they
were to go through to become official lifetime priests for the Tabernacle. The first thing I saw interesting was the
fact that the High Priest was to wear a golden diadem on his forehead with these words engraved: Holiness Unto
the Lord. All the other engravings on the priesthood garments referred to the people of Israel, but this one on his
forehead referred to himself and the way he was to come into the presence of God on behalf of the people.
Likewise, as Hebrews tells us, Jesus is now our High Priest, who is perfect and holy, and once for all became the
Offerer (High Priest) and the Offering (Lamb of God) at the same time on the Cross. He made atonement for our
sins and opened the way for us into God's holy presence. How cool and perfect is that!!! Moreover, 1 Peter 2:9
describes the church as Royal Priesthood, which means we are made priests in the new covenant. Therefore, I
ask the Spirit to engrave in my heart "Holiness unto the Lord" that I may approach His Holy throne boldly (Heb
4.16) but also in holiness: with a sincere heart, in assurance of faith, having purified my conscience and my body
unto Him (Heb 10.22). Our God is Holy, and only He can make us holy as He is!!!! Let's draw near Him and
pursue holiness = ).
This spring semester we have a total of 9 students in the Bible College, 5 girls and 4 guys. It´s been so cool to
see everyone God has brought to us this semester, how different each one is and what a blessing it is to get to
know them all. We all make a great family, for sure !!! I live with two girl students named: Audrey and Mari, both
so different and so loving. We have so much fun together and get to share about our lives and what God is doing
and showing each of us. We have a female intern, Shaviane, and she lives with 3 girls. We have a girls meeting
every other week to have fellowship, share our testimonies, medidate a on the Word and pray for each other. I
feel like the Lord is blessing me so so much through the girls, and seeing all the conviction and revelation He is
giving them in different areas of their lives. God is definitely at work and I am so so privileged to be here and
serve them with all I can. Here is a picture at a Women´s Bible study with most of the girls.

Since I have been back, the Sunday Bible Study is growing spiritually and becoming more and more solid in the
sense that there is already a faithful and commited group of people that attend and that come so hungry for the
Word and for fellowship. I have to say that Sunday is definitely my favorite day!!!! My heart just bursts of joy to
see the people coming in the afternoon to study God´s Word. Every Sunday is a new adventure of faith, praying
for God´s Word to break, change, restore and touch all the lives of those that God faithfully brings each Sunday. I
serve with the Kidz and that has also been such a blessing. The group is small and energetic and we just have so
much fun singing, studying God´s word, and then playing and doing a craft based on the theme studied. I am
going through the book of Luke with the Kidz and I can see how their little minds retain so much and their faith in
Jesus is being nourished little by little. They encourage me to walk Jesus, speak Jesus and live Jesus to the
most. As a petition of a family that comes on Sundays, since mid February we are gathering for prayer in their
house every Wednesday evening. We join to worship and seek God in prayer, lifting up the prayer requests of
other people in the Bible study as well as our own requests. I´m pretty excited about this new space God has
opened for prayer, for it´s in prayer that we need to walk and only in prayer that God will move through His Spirit
in our hearts together as a body and in others as we intercede for them and stand in the gap. May the Lord lead
and move this prayer meeting to His heart and may all attendants grow in our prayer life.
Here is a picture of kidz ministry on Sundays, from left to right: Elian and his little brother, Hazel, Esteban, Mariel,
little Isabella and Tiffany.

Don't know if you all remember but last year I wrote about a girl named Liseth, who accepted Jesus in September
and whom I started to meet up to study the Word together. Well, she decided last year that she wanted to get
married in obedience to what God's word says. A week after I got back, she got married and I had the joy to help
her with some little preparations and to be at her wedding and get to know all of her and his family. We started to
meet up again to study the book of 1 John. Please lift her and her husband Bryan in prayer. May they become a
family for the Lord Jesus, and may she grow in the knowledge of Jesus and His Word and leave behind all weight
such as tradition, and religion and run freely the race in Jesus (Heb 12:1).

A second girl I would like to ask you prayer for is Nikole. She came to our Tuesday night class of Thessalonians
with her friend Shirley. I had the opportunity to talk to her during the break and hear she was going through so
much hardship and was at the end of herself. I invited her to come on Sunday and gave her a Bible verse to read
and meditate. God had me pray for her salvation every single day of that week, as I knew she was suffering. She
came that very next Sunday to the Bible Study and was strongly touched by the Word of God and the application
Ryan, the pastor, shared about the need of Christ's sacrifice for forgiveness of sins. After the study, she came to
me and said: I'm done with trying by myself, I want Jesus in a real way in my life, I need Him. We prayed and
cried together and she accepted Jesus into her heart. What a wonderful joy, What a glorious decision! Ever since
that moment, which was 3 weeks ago, she's been coming to bible studies, and meeting with me at least once a
week, to study foundations of faith. She is a dear friend now and is part of God's family. However, she's still
suffering from past decisions and is in need of a job desperately, would you help me pray for her and for God's
revelation, will and strength upon her life?
Here is a picture at Liseth's wedding and a picture with Nikole two days after she gave her life to Jesus!

On another note, the Lord gave us an opportunity this month to go outreach an indigenous group in the South of
Costa Rica called the Guaymi, and it was truly amazing!. I have pictures and stories but I promise I will share
those in my next newsletter since this one is too long already.
In short, as you can read God is clearly at work in this Valley, and I feel so privileged to be a part of what He's
doing and can't wait to see what He will continue to do. As I always ask, and need to ask, please keep me in your
prayers and also the ministry in San Isidro. Your prayers make a huge difference and it's probably those that God
is answering with every single person that comes to His knowledge and that He allows us to love upon. Please
pray for me regarding these areas: good & balanced time management, spiritual discernment in conversations,
interactions and discipleship, inspiring personal time in the Word, and more opportunities to meet new people and
share the love of Jesus. Please pray also for the staff team here: Ryan, Gerry, Vanessa and me, and for the
interns serving with us this semester: Aaron, Kory and Shavi.
Thanks so much for your prayers and support, that's what keeps me here! I am so blessed to have you in my
family = ). May His love and grace flow through this valley swiftly and may we just be tools in His mighty hands !!!
Love you all in Christ,
