So my family and I along with some people from our old church went to Belize to help build a pre-school in June of 2010. Well God did an amazing thing and called us to start a ministry there! So out of faith and a desire to be obedient to his call we purchased a place and prayed that God would guide us...because we really had no idea what we were doing!!
What started out as a thought for simply housing short term mission teams has evolved rapidly through God opening our eyes and the hearts of others! We (and I mean EVERYONE who helps and gives!!) now help children go to school, we help those in the village who are sick and struggling...Through a good friend Wendy we have a pre-school activity center and after school Tutor Program at our facilit ythat is rapidly outgrowing our space! We have met many friends doing a variety of ministries that we come along side and help with as well...
But we can't do it alone...we need help through the generosity of others. WE do not sponsor the kids on our own, we find generous donors who care and want to invest in a child's life and give that child a real chance at a real future. You'd be amazed what hearing about God and his love and learning that He has a plan for their lives will do to their hearts and how it gives them hope. Couple that with a solid education and that child will rise above poverty and be whom he or she is designed to be, not who society dictates they will be...
Our fundraising for Student Sponsorship is ongoing...it doesn't stop, because the need doesn't stop...There are always more kids to send to school!! We can't do it on our own...Will you please help ??
