In 2009, Fortress Fire began ministering abroad through foreign mission work in Matamoros, Mexico. Through this effort of spreading God's fire of love, doors became open to minister in Liberia, Costa Rica in 2010. The passionate worship style ignited a revivalistic wildfire that propelled Fortress Fire to minister along with Pastor Lee in their first evangelistic crusade with La Iglesia Evangelica Metodista Fuente de Gracia, throughout the entire country of Costa Rica in 2011. They have taken their desire of worship and returned it to the hands of the young, engulfing those with an experience of adoration that allows the nations to realize that "our God is a consuming fire!"
