Trip Journal Updates

We have arrived!
by Leah | July 12, 2011
We have finally arrived! After a crazy day getting here we have made it and our going full force. God has done so many amazing things just by getting us down here and we cannot wait to see what he is going to do the rest of the week. Thank you so much for all your prayers. We miss you all and have so many stories to share with you already. God Bless you! We will update you with more pictures and stories soon!

Busy, Busy, Busy!
by Bethany R. | July 13, 2011
Sorry for the lag in updates, we have been wonderfully blessed with projects to keep us busy! We have painted the inside of the church at our ministry site of Armenia Baptist Church. The painting went well and quick with so many willing people!

Also, we went on visits door to door in the community inviting them to church, VBS and sharing the gospel. We had great conversations with the Belizeans we met and were able to pray with many of them about different struggles in their lives. We cannot wait to see them all again and reconnect with them tomorrow.

Orphanage Visits
by Bethany R. | July 13, 2011
Today we had the opportunity to go visit the orphanage in Belmopan. The children were so polite, respectful and excited to see us. We really enjoyed getting to play with them and getting to see the smiles on their faces.

VBS Highlights
by Bethany R. | July 13, 2011
We are having an awesome VBS everyday with 150+ kids! The kid's parents are even coming with them now and returning back for our nightly church services! Please keep us in your prayers as we continue this week!

Just a goofy picture for you guys back home!

Xunantunich Recreation!
by Bethany R. | July 14, 2011
Today we took some time to ourselves for recreation! We visited the Mayan Ruins at Xunantunich, Belize. These ruins showcase the biggest temples, altars and ball-courts in all of the sites in Belize. We loved getting to see such a historical site and imagining how the people lived back then. Did you know at the height of the Mayan civilization, the population of Belize was over 3 million people? That's 10 times as many people as there is in the country today!

We also loved getting to see more of the rainforest and many different animals and wildlife. But quite possibly the best part was getting to the top of the largest temple and looking down on Guatemala. It was impressive to see the beautiful land our Lord has blessed us with!

We then ate a quick lunch and headed to our site to kick off VBS for the evening. Thank you all for your prayers, we can feel them at work!

Painting is Finished
by Bethany R. | July 15, 2011
Painting is finally done on the church in Armenia! We've worked hard on painting the inside and outside but with all of us pulling together, we finally finished. It was so awesome to get to see the before and after of the church. The Lord is good!

Church Services
by Bethany R. | July 15, 2011
We have also had the privilege to lead 3 services at the church. We led singing, had a few people share testimonies and heard a message from Pastor John.

VBS again!
by Bethany R. | July 15, 2011
With our last day of VBS coming to a close, it was so hard to tell the children goodbye. We feel as if they are a part of our lives now. With many tears and long hugs, we said goodbye. Our hearts were heavy as they waved to us from the bus. We thank the Lord for His goodness in blessing us with the opportunity to meet them.
