Dear Friends from EDI Costa Rica,
Thank you so much for your participation and the work of the EDI and Cultura Activa, amazing! Your dreams are so big and I just wanted to encourage you that we have a big God that is doing and will do more than what we can ask or imagine, so DREAM EVEN BIGGER, LETS STRETCH OURSELVES IN FAITH!
I am so amazed by all of your work, and so encouraged, it does not take many for God to do miracles and change Costa Rica and beyond for his kingdom, the energy and enthusiasm for God’s kingdom, for creativity, and for the poor and the outcast was incredible and humbling to witness. All of you are doing big things, but I believe that they can be and will be even bigger. I really saw evidence of EDI’s vision, God’s vision of kingdom and transformation in economics, business and politics, going forth in Costa Rica from this gathering. Blessings to you all and may God continue to transform the people of Costa Rica and beyond, and I hope the words below from the original vision are encouraging:
EDI was born out of the prayer of two friends as a response to what to do to help the region now that the wars in the 90s were over and there was an apparent economic and political need to rebuild the nations of Southeast Europe.
The solution that came was to apply Jesus’s life and principles to change our nations in the fields of economics, politics, and economic relations between ethnic groups and nations. Principles like integrity, moral leadership, service to the community, a focus on the poorest and their needs, faith and transparency can help combat corruption, selfishness, youth hopelessness, debilitating unemployment, and abject poverty. Our hope is that when these experiences and principles are applied, they will end up changing and developing the region, not just in terms of economic growth, but through the creation of a community of leaders committed to good economics and politics and most importantly, to each other and God.
Following His way, together we want to develop visions of change, using new tools, new ideas, and new hope. And we want to do this as co-workers and friends.
I believe that this is what the Economic Diplomacy and Integrity Forum will do. That youwill be miracles that will change nations, so, let us not sit passive, or idle while corruption, poverty, unemployment and other similar ills grip our lands and destroy our people. We are at a crucial time, so let us take hold of this hope together, opening our minds, extending our arms of friendship, and letting our creative ideas and love flow together.
And come, let us dream together of something better
