The 2017 Belize Mission Team has been busy preparing for our trip this year. We have 13 members plus our resource from The Word at Work, giving us a total of 14 people on the team. We will begin our travels on Sunday, March 12th and return on Sunday, March 19th. Please follow us here. We will plan to post at the end of each day with news of the day and any new prayer requests.
The team has been meeting together for months in preparation, taking short term mission training, and praying for the people we will meet in Belize. As in past years, we plan to work alongside Youth Enhancement Services (YES) for the majority of the week. As of now, we plan to share in worship, fun activities and painting during the week. The primary focus of our team is to engage the people that we meet in Belize to share God's love and encouragement as we build relationships.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us this year and in the past - your prayers and financial support are key to our mission program. As we begin our trip this year....
1. Please pray for safe travels and health during our time away
2. Please pray for the students, staff, administrators, and teen moms at Youth Enhancement Services
3. Please pray that our team will support and encourage one another
We are excited to renew friendships and make new friends. Lord, help us to love each other as you have commanded.
John 15:16 - 17 "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit - fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other."
