Five Days on Mission in Belize

DSCF9045It is hard to believe we have been here 5 days at Hearts of Christ Children’s Ministry; time is flying by.  Today we traveled to many schools in Belmopan, Armenia, St. Matthews, Roaring Creek and CottonTree Villages and delivered Christmas packages to students.  There are about 19 packages left at the mission house and we will deliver them tomorrow; it has been a busy task but we have enjoyed every minute.  HOC LogoAs we handed out Jesus pins in Armenia, students asked what they were for and we had the opportunity once again to tell children about Jesus.  Tomorrow is a holiday in Belize as they celebrate “Garifuna Day”.  This day, November 19th, signifies the arrival of the first Garinagu by dory (dug-out canoe) in 1943.  Tomorrow we will visit Buena Vista Village and have door-to-door outreach; pray for us as we reach out to the lost and hurting of Belize.

Children gather around our car in Armenia Village to get a Jesus pin and a “Smile Jesus Loves You” sticker.

Yes, Ms. Jill has been in the mud again!

I ran into Ms. Joanie at church Sunday and she was carrying her “Lavish” totebag.

Ms. Joanie made the bag two years ago at the very first “Women’s Bible Conference” at Hearts of Christ in Roaring Creek Village; she attended the second conference too.  She was so excited when I told her we were coming back in January 2014 to hold the third conference; “The Beautiful Exchange.”

The women of Belize are the most forgotten and many of them are badly abused; they have been prayed over at these conferences and many of them have continued home Bible studies.  These women that have stepped up to witness to their neighbors and friends will be helping lead the conference in January.  Start praying now; this conference and women’s mission team is building disciples!

Praise the Lord!
