Day 6: Day Away

Barrie HANDS Team:

Have you ever wondered what the spot you are standing on looked like thousands of years ago? Well today we definitely asked ourselves that as we toured the Mayan Ruins. 

Our adventure started with an hour boat tour up the New River, this tour included many stops along the way. One of our stops included seeing a monkey, and Mitch had the opportunity to give the monkey a banana. 

The Mayan Ruins were quite interesting; it was crazy to think of how long they'd been there. Our group can definitely agree that the second Mayan Temple (second picture) that we went to was our favourite. After 91 steep steps up we got to the top, and once we reached the top we were able to see 360 degrees of jungle around us. We were able to see the river, along with trees as far as the eye could see. Words cannot describe the beauty that we witnessed at the top of this temple. 

The tour was definitely one that we won't be forgetting, and we were so blessed to go on it.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support.

Wow, it's been great keeping in tune with your work and service in Belize. Sounds like your being great ambassadors... You know, if you really want to know what it was like when the Mayan ruins were built all you need to do is ask Chuck or Leo. Did they lead the tour for you? Ha, ha. Love you all. Keep up the good work.

It's just amazing, what we see in the pictures and comments. We pray that you are a blessing to those around you and in turn you are blessed. May God surround you all with his love. Looking forward to seeing you all safely back with wonderful stories in tow.
