Youth Belize mission 2020

A team of 30 from Trinity Lutheran were in Belize from Feb. 14-21st to serve in Independence, Belize on mission.  What a week we had!  The weather was hot, hot, hot!  The people beautiful, warm and so welcoming!  The work hard and rewarding! In our few short days in Independence our Construction Crews finished a small Two Bedroom Home for a single mother and her children and grandchildren (their home was barely standing), and a Barber Shop for a young man, Joshua, home from rehab and trained as a barber; but with no hope of beginning.  He now has a dream and the hope of seeing it happen.  Our Eyeglass Clinic saw 394 people in 3 different communities and were able to outfit them all with sunglasses, and 283 of them with glasses enabling them to see!  Our crew of 17 youth held Sports Clinics and play each day for 240 plus kids, ages 4-14.  A highlight was the teaching of hockey skills and equipping two teams with sticks and balls to play after we left – Belize now has a hockey team!  A Days for Girls Evening saw a packed church of women learning about women’s health issues and receiving reusable feminine hygiene products and backpacks made back here in Alberta.  We visited an orphanage, prayed with many, attended pre-school, did Devotions at the local public school, and saw Jesus in our Belizean brothers and sisters and in each other. 


Our thanks to everyone who supported us through financial donations.  A special shout out to Travis Lutes and Lutes Building Centre, and Ken Taylor of Creative Screen Art, Bassano for their generous assistance and support.  We thank each of you who prayed for us before, during and after this trip.

 

It has been said, “people do not care how much you know UNTIL they know how much you care”.  “How beautiful are the feet that bring the Good News”. Romans 10:15b God cares in Christ Jesus!

We have had several Mission Trips with Praying Pelican Missions. Praying Pelican Missions operates out of Minniapolis, Minnesota in the United States and is a non-denominational organization which prepares the sites and all the logistics of the mission so that our team is able to hit the ground running. They see to the safety of accommodations, meals, water and transportation and allow participants to gain a flavour of the surrounding culture and sights.
