The Hope team arrived today and we had a beautiful time! The flight arrived safely and on time, and we had a bite of lunch before heading over to do ministry at the Golden Haven Home for the Elderly. It was a powerful experience, and that was just the first day! Everyone is tired, but we're looking forward to church and visiting the community of Bermudian Landing tomorrow!
The Lord is working!

Today was our first full day in Belize! We started off with a breakfast at our hotel, and headed to Bermudian Landing for an amazing church service. One of the other church groups that we are working with this week led the service and it was awesome being able to hear how the Lord has worked in other's lives.

These past two days have been busy, yet amazing! Yesterday was our first day of VBS and around 80 kids showed up. Everyone packed into the small church building and the day was off! The kids really enjoyed the songs, games and the interactive bible story led by Mark.

Today was another packed day! We started off with VBS in the morning and about 150 kids showed up again. It was raining off and on throughout the morning but that did not stop the games, crafts and activity all around the church. The teens have also been enjoying their own type of youth group activities- things directed more towards them. Construction has also been going great and Joseph's house is coming along.
