Chris and Nicole Hirai serve along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Their mission is to inspire, encourage, and support youth & families through community development and Restorative Care. Since February 2015, they have lived and worked with their four biological children and adopted daughter between the cities of Jaco and Parrita, Costa Rica.
Their ministry, Tomar La Causa (Take up the Cause) works towards ending institutionalized care of children in Costa Rica by focusing in three areas: Before (community development), during (orphanage ministries), and after (Restorative Care).
They strive to build-up the community by sharing the gospel, teaching music, discipleship, and education. Specifically, the Hirais teach music and life skills classes, as well as help youth graduate high school in various Pacific coastal communities.
They also partner with El Aposento Alto (The Upper Room) for education and community development.
Purpose: To Serve and follow Jesus Christ…by showing mercy to the suffering, giving to those in need, caring for widows and orphans, and sharing the good news of the gospel of Christ.
