Nate Craft had a dream. And he had a plan to reach his dream, a plan to live the life he had always wanted. He was a Division 1 football player at Jacksonville State University. He was a pre-med major with a 4.0 grade point average. He was popular on campus. He was on his way to being happy and successful. God also had a plan. God had a plan for the 92 unreached people groups who live in the jungles of the Amazon Basin which surround the end of the road where the town of Yurimaguas lies in the region of Loreto, Peru. And God had a plan for Nate.
Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America.

The country spends roughly 6.9% of its budget (2016) on education, compared to a global average of 4.4%. Its economy, once heavily dependent on agriculture, has diversified to include sectors such as finance, corporate services for foreign companies, pharmaceuticals, and ecotourism.
