The food is how we get there.
Go Live Love Gifts
Rice and Beans Ministries is dedicated to providing hope and joy to the children of Costa Rica, Brazil, and United States. With your help the Go Live Love gifts campaign, provides these children with a backpack filled with small toys, creative items such as crayons and coloring books, and personal care essentials. Are you interested in spreading hope and love to the children in these areas?
Through Erase the Need campaign, we want to provide Hope for a successful future. One of the obstacles often faced by those living in rural, impoverished areas is the lack of school supplies. Hope, to a child, might be a gift box filled with surprises or even a uniform to wear to school. Most times, it is the simplest of gestures that are the most impactful.
Join us in equipping children with the tools for a successful future!
Let's Finish What We Started
Early into 2020, we put our building projects on pause in order to care for our communities during a time of need we had never experienced before. We were blessed with the opportunity to create sustainable programs to care for this, so let’s finish what we started.
Rice and Beans Ministries has always worked to overcome a persistent obstacle in Costa Rica – hungry communities with a lack of food. We faced this issue head on with door to door food deliveries, food drives, and more. During this year, this obstacle grown more than we ever expected. Gardens of Hope is our chance to overcome that obstacle in a sustainable way while using it as a ministry opportunity.

We Invest in Three Key Areas
Through your support, RABMIN packs and delivers vital food to families who depend on our help. Currently, we serve 80+ communities with food and prayer in Costa Rica. Through this ministry we are able to meet an immediate need and offer hope, an encouraging word, and prayer while building relationships with the families. Through these visits, we find families hungry for more than just food and begin to show them how to have a personal relationship with Jesus and much more.
With educational programs for children, such as anti-bullying campaigns in Costa Rica and Brazil, RABMIN is helping children. These programs give local children a safe and educational place to play, learn, express themselves, and spend after school hours. The goal of these programs is to keep kids safe, in school, and share the love of Jesus with them in a fun, kid-friendly platform.
We feel that building relationships with the local communities is a great way to bring people to Christ. By including the local congregation in construction projects, we are forming long-lasting relationships with these families. We know hundreds of families who are in desperate need of some type of home repair. It is our focus to meet these pressing needs.
