Greetings from Belize!
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!
