Jason & Sarah Smith ~ Directors of Refugio Solté

Jason, a Louisiana boy, and Sarah, a Honduran daughter of missionaries, met and chose deep love for each other while attending college in New Orleans. "We were married in June of 2006 and a few days after our honeymoon were asked to go to Costa Rica for one year to manage the construction project of Refugio Solté. With nothing tying us down, we set off for a one year jungle adventure, not knowing that nearly ten years later the adventure would still be unfolding. God added two wild blessings to our story, our sons Luka (2009) and Niko (2011). Together we direct the happenings of Refugio Solté, seeking daily what God's plans are for His mountain and following after what He is already doing. We consider it an honor to be a part of what God is moving in so many lives, investing encouragement and the truth of Christ into people we encounter. He is worthy of it all!
