Team Member Profile – The Awesome Britt Hopkins!

Hello, my name is Britt Hopkins, and I am excited to serve with Lakeland at Hogar de Vida in
Costa Rica!

As a teen, I felt that a seed was planted in me to participate in short-term ministry trips. I have
been on and led several trips to different regions including New Mexico, Mexico, Jamaica,
Zambia, and now Costa Rica. Currently I serve on the board of Francophone Ministries for Christ,
which focuses on radio evangelism in Burkina Faso. There is something extraordinary about
stepping outside of your comfort zone and helping others process their experiences on these
trips to produce transformation in their own lives and steward experiences like these in a God-
honoring way.

I heard Tim and Dena Stromstad’s testimonies at Lakeland, and as they were sharing about how
God has been at work in their lives, my heart was stirred, and a desire to participate in their
ministry grew. I am excited to serve the children and tias at Hogar de Vida, learn from the
Stromstads, and see how God will use this experience as I look to become more involved with

I would appreciate prayer in these areas- I can continue to surrender my life to God as an act of
obedience, trusting in His perfect timing to accomplish His will through purposeful
