Our Belize Mission Team is back and they have some amazing stories!

While they were there they

  • Hosted a VBS
  • Did food delivery home visits
  • Did fence construction
  • Repaired and painted the pastor’s office
  • Held Women’s Bible Study
  • Hosted a youth night

There were many opportunities where our team got to pray with families as they brought them food. Families who had recently lost spouses/parents and others who had recently lost a spouse and whose child is currently suffering with cancer. If you talk with the team they’ll tell you that even though these people were suffering, they were filled with so much joy and expressed an immense amount of gratitude for our team there serving.

The Women’s Bible Study opened up opportunities as well. Beth Grider shared that, “On day 1 of Bible study two ladies mentioned something they were going through. So as we wrapped up I said that we would pray for them and any others who needed prayer. I sat 3 chairs out. Before I knew it, every Belizian woman (9) were sitting in chairs waiting for us to pray for them… powerful and unexpected.”

If you get the chance, ask anyone who went on the trip to tell you more stories of their experience and how God is working in Belize!

Chest Of Joash

The Chest of Joash provides an opportunity to give above and beyond the normal tithe. The money from it goes directly to work needed done on our building.

In 2 Chronicles 24 we find Joash repairing the temple and a chest was set outside of it for people to bring a tithe that was used to pay the workers restoring the temple. Verse 10 says, “And all the princes and all the people rejoiced and brought their tax and dropped it into the chest until they had finished.”

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have joyfully donated just as the Israelite officials and people did!

You can give to the Chest of Joash by clicking the button below and selecting “Chest of Joash” in the drop down menu.
