Kayla Chandler  |  Costa Rica

Kayla Chandler is a lifer at Cedar Grove ... she is also a missionary in Costa Rica, serving for seven years! Kayla is responsible for the administration and development of all short term missions programs in Costa Rica for the European organization Latin Link.

Her responsibilities includes liasing with team leaders, care of short term missionaries while in Costa Rica, making trip selections, trip preparations and debriefing of short term missionaries sent out from Costa Rica.  This position allows her to combine many passions ... working with locals, loving on people, building relationships, and sharing the blessings from God.  It is an incredible opportunity and she feels blessed!

34 A new command I give you:  Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.   John 13:34-35
  • Currently working with a Swiss family for the short-term missions program. 2 adults, 2 kids (3, 1.5, and one on the way).  Kayla is responsible for them while in Costa Rica for their 2 year commitment, and then Kayla hopes they will transfer to Stay (our long term program)
  • Obtaining a Visa to be in Costa Rica has involved years of delays and setbacks
  • Without this Visa, Kayla has to leave Costa Rica every 90 days to renew a tourist visa.
  • She currently has a good lawyer who is making progress and now must prepare some new and updated documents.


  • Pray for the new missionary family. Extended family has health issues and close friends recently passed away. Pray for Kayla as she helps orient this family
  • Pray for the Visa she needs.  Thankful her visa application process was extended. Pray for peace and a solid assurance that she is in God's will as she continues in this tedious process.
  • Pray for anxiety and loneliness in ministry and a season of growth and dependence on the Lord.
