Life in Belize

Greetings from Orange Walk Belize

It’s still early in the trip, but we are off and running.  We had a bit of a hiccup at the airport, and 13 team members and leaders will be arriving in just a short while.  The rest of the group has rallied and are already hard at work, even in the humidity and heat.

We have 25 students and leaders pouring a cement floor in a home for some El Buen Pastor church members.  They are hand mixing 15 bags of cement (which weight 95 pounds) along with sand and gravel.  Once the cement is ready, they wheelbarrow it into the house and pour it.  It is very difficult and tiring work, and our students are doing absolutely fantastic.  You have much to be proud of them for.

The rest of the team is up at the new church Fe Y Amor (faith and love) Church, where they are busy painting a brand new Sunday school room.  This little church has over 60 children coming regularly on Sunday.  They have a real heart to reach the children in the neighborhood.

This afternoon, there will be a VBS program at both churches.  It will be a lot of fun, leading games, singing songs, doing crafts and teaching the love of Jesus.

Current temperature in Belize: 88 degrees and around 80-90% humidity.

    So glad to hear that the children are being loved on and blessed by the JK Youth and staff! Good to hear about the cement pours, too! Give hugs and love to Pastor Angel and our brothers and sisters at El Buen Pastor. Special shout out to Luda and Perla and Joshua and Hilberto and Jesus! We are praying that your time there together will be very special. We love you guys!
