Eppic Ministries International, Inc.
February 27, 2010

-----" I was a new Christian and a student at the University of Costa Rica in the 80's when Eppic Ministries International came to my country to minister the gospel in mime at the university campus. Even though I was part of a small Christian mime team already , I had never seen anything like Eppic before. The professionalism, the serving spirit of the mimes, and The skits were so powerful that I went home after classes that day and the images were still vivid and fresh in my mind and heart at night. I decided to attend the next performances and got to know the mimes and the director Chris Erickson. The next year after Eppic visited, Chris offered a scholarship to our novice mime team. So seven Costaricans attended a month of training at the two headquarters houses in Minnesota. We had a great time of learning , and met people that still remain friends throughout the years. Eppic sent us to our country fully equipped with suitcases of materials to continue our evangelistic work in the campus and beyond. We became one of the best mime trained teams operating and serving in Costa Rica at the time, and due to our training and exposure to Eppic, many doors to ministry were opened in our country and in the USA for us in the years ahead. Today, we are in our 40's, but we still have a fresh memory of that visit to USA and the month of training we experienced with Eppic. For us, meeting Chris and Eppic, was a life changing experience. ----Maria Chacon, Costa Rica
