Travelling Home 0 comments

Our Team:

Well, time to go.  It is impossible to articulate all that we have experinced.  God is good all the time and all the time God is good!  We are blessed from all that God revealed to us but we are also grateful to be returning home to family, friends and drinkable tap water.  Until next year..........

Day 8 in Belize - Taking in some local culture! 0 comments

Today was a special day for all of us.  Pastor Betson showed us some of the sites, sounds and tastes of the culture of Belize.  As amazing as our day together was not as special as our evening back at the house.  We gathered together for much of the evening to worship, pray and reminisce about the week that was.  This included the men from Belize that we worked with and some of their wives.  It was a time together that none of us will soon forget.  The Betson's presented each one of us with a wallet as a reminder of our stay.  We were privileged to present the Betson'd with a new digital projector (the old one broke months ago and he had been praying for a new one), a guitar and some cash to help with Carolyn Betson's medical needs.  This could not have been a better finish for our time together. All are looking forward to what God has in store for next year!  Blessed!!

Day 7 in Belize 0 comments

This was our last full working day at the Unity Presbyterian School.  It was another day of hard work but satisfying in many ways.  The computer lab work was completed to the point that we were able to accomplish in the time we had and with the equipment we had.  Jerry and Willie did an outstanding job.  The kids now have a computer lab with 20 working computers!!  The fencing project was taken as far as we could take it.  The fence behind the school is complete and more forms were made and put in place to continue the fence building after we leave.  The men worked very hard again today.  A good deal of additional outdoor parging was also accomplished thanks to Ben and Peter under Roger's (from Belize) guidance.  Without doubt, the highlight of the day was the morning school assembly were we were recognized and thanked for out efforts.  Over 200 hugs!  Unbeleivable......
