We are teachers, artists, cooks, entrepreneurs, welders, crafters and electricians who are in love with Jesus and excited about what he's doing here, in Costa Rica.
Benjamin & Taja
Founders of the Omega Task Mission, Ben grew up picking coffee in the same neighborhood that he is now serving and ministering to and his wife Taja is originally from Hawaii. They met in Costa Rica while serving as missionaries with YWAM. Their vision is to see Costa Rica thriving, full of Godly leaders who are influencing all spheres of the globe. Ben is familiar with the impact investing in people, especially kids, can have. That’s why if you ever go with him to pick a bushel of coffee, all the kids who are out there picking come running to him! As a loving mother of their two children, Taja heads the Prenatal Care program and teaches the neighborhood kids how to cook and bake every wednesday afternoon during the mid-week kids club.
Dixi & Juan Carlos
Head of Kids Clubs and the youth programs, these two are uniquely gifted and creative educators and communicators. Dixie teaches the younger children three times a weeks while Juan Carlos leads the older group every Saturday.
