Instituto Christiano Bilingue Palabra de Vida (Word of Life) Christian School - Central Valley of Costa Rica

"...become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life..." Philippians 2:16

LPDV was established in 1996.  The school rapidly outgrew its facilities.  In 1998 a preschool and first grade were added to the existing 7th, 8th, and 9th grades.  By 2000, LPDV celebrated its first high school graduation and three years later the elementary school reached its first sixth grade graduation.  The student population is now 350 and projected to rise to 550.  Construction has been continuous for the past ten years and is projected to continue for several years to come. 

Men's International Missions (MIM) has blessed LPDV for the past seven years with new buildings, classrooms, office spaces, library, bathrooms, hallways, student desks, cabinets, and thousands of square feet o freshly painted walls. 


Faith church started to help at LPDV in 2003 and has returned several times in coordination with Men International Missions (MIM) short term teams to help complete the ongoing work.  Early in 2010 at team of 22 men and women from Faith church helped paint all 4 P-K classrooms, move the P-K playground, and computer lab. They also helped to set up the computer lab and installed plumbing and cabinets.  Several helped catalog library books. Faith church has found this work to be rewarding to all involved and a true expression of outreach. 

During March of 2012, work was finished on a sidewalk replacement project.
