Today was our last full day in Belize and the students have had such a great time. We toured the Mayan ruins called Xunantunich about an hours drive from here. So beautiful. I hope to post some pics here before long. It was an awesome experience. We climbed to the top of the highest temple and had a complete 360 degree panaramic view of the jungle and countryside. We are spending our last evening here relaxing and having fun before packing to come home tomorrow. God has been so good. All are well and have had life changing experiences. Pray for safe travel home for our team tomorrow. We are all tired but it is a good tired, knowing how much God has accomplished through us.

What a great first day in Belize. After arriving safely and checking into our hotel we were taken about 30 minutes outside of town where we had a picnic lunch and got to go on a nature hike to see howler monkeys in the wild. What an experience! We were able to see the monkeys very close up and get to understand more about the wildlife of Belize. Next it was to downtown Belize City and Mirirh's Ministry for children, where we'll be serving for the first part of our trip. This is an inner city type outreach where children come for food, Bible study, games, and love. We were able to play with all of the children that came today and got an orientation about the ministry from "Aunt Suzzette" who is the founder and an absolutely wonderful lady. Her testimony, and the testimony of some of her volunteers was so very moving. We are all tired and yet so excited for what God has planned for us this week. Tomorrow we go to a school to share songs, skits , and testimonies. Pray for God to annoint the students as they share. Stay tunned!

Belize is a distinct nation in Central America with a coastline featuring the worlds second largest barrier reef, dense tropical forests teaming with wildlife, and it is the only country in the region with English as its official language. The people of Belize are friendly and diverse, gaining their independence from Great Britian in 1981. The ancient Mayan civilization called the land now known as Belize their home and the country is host to some of their ruins, which are reportedly thousands of years old. We are very excited to explore Belize and its culture as we serve and minister to its people. Feel free to keep up with our journey as we post pictures and comments along the way. Each post will also have some prayer ideas as I'm sure you will want to continually lift us up in prayer. We are counting on your support and the Lord's direction. In all we do let Him be praised.
