My rock and my redeemer

Never2Late HANDS Team:

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, Oh Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer", was the message the students of the Cornerstone Presbyterian Highschool, received this morning.
We arrived before 8 o'clock to attend their assembly. Welcomed by the vice principal and students, we enjoyed and were also able to participate in their praise songs. 
A teacher explained to them, how important it is to think, before our tongue forms the words we are going to speak! Words can lift you up and bring you down and both ways can make a deep impression on the person you talk to.
The students were dismissed for class and we were invited to join them by the principal Mr. Albert Zanting. 
We were very impressed with the beautiful school building and the well kept grounds. EduDeo has left their fingerprints here as well!
The educational level was impressive and the students' participation was excellent!
We had to leave at 10 o'clock to be able to realize the plans for this day. A visit to Mennonite chicken processing plant and a co-op rice & soybean mill.
We drove through scenic Belize and enjoyed the landscape, but were happy to arrive at our destination. We stopped at a Mennonite restaurant for a bite. Bert ordered a vernekje, it sounded bad, but the taste was ok.
Following lunch, it was a short drive to  Circle R Co-op, where we received a very enlightening presentation about the processing and packaging of rice as well as soybeans! This trip was on the request of George, who visibly loved to see the whole operation.
We moved on to the Caribbean Chicken processing plant, where we all were donned in protective gear looking like medical staff ready to operate.
Lots of pictures were taken and in we went to watch in reverse order, from the final product to the first stage of live chickens. We all were impressed with how hygiene was maintained.
Time to drive home,  stopping on our way back at the ice cream parlor in Orange Walk. Dinner was waiting for us the principals' house once again!
And while we drove home, we noticed the cloud formation, the bright big orange moon and the beauty of it all! God's ever-present hand in our lives...
Truly, the heavens declare the glory of God and the sky above proclaim his handy work!!
We met again after showers for devotions and brought the incredible sights of this night to a close.

Its amazing that you've had the opportunity to see so much of the community in Belize. I'm sure its been a great way to interact with the boarder local people.

Thank you for the ways your team served humbly in Belize. Looking forward to hearing more!
