Update from Belize

Georgetown 2014 HANDS Team:

Happy Birthday Canada!!  After work today, after a swim and a shower, I put on my Canadian flag t-shirt.  It gets a lot of respectful attention here and I'm so happy to call Canada home.  

Saturday saw us take a 25 mile river ride to an interior Mayan ruin called Lamanai where we enjoyed a picnic lunch prior to a guided tour to numerous temples and excavations; a lovely filled with tropical sights and sounds.  

On Sunday morning we worshiped at a Presbyterian church which graciously invited us over after being displaced from our original church due to African Killer Bees having invaded the night before.  It was a special combined service to thank God for all the educational blessings over the past year in many of the Christian schools in the Corozal District of Belize.  

Yesterday and today we continued our work at Concepcion Presbyterian School pouring concrete, laying tile, and grouting.  With this great team we are continually getting ahead of the available supplies.  Today we finished the floor and prepared the walls for painting.  Since our hosts never expected we would get this far, they will get the paint early tomorrow morning.  Again and again we are made aware of God as our strength.

Well done team... Sounds like the team is working very well together.... I did not hear anything about blisters, sore arms or back aches....

The killer bee scenario sounds very worrisome...

We continue to pray for your mission and safe return.
