Getting ready to go. 2 comments

So our final meeting as a team will take place on the evening of January 11.

We are sorry to report we are now a team of 10 instead of 12. Two of our members have had health issues since we formed the team and it has been decided best for them not to travel at this time. They are Roely Duru and Alice Mans. We ask God's blessing and further healing for these sisters. We are going to miss them.

We have been informed that we will be working on school called "Redeemer Preschool", in the town of San Narcisco, Corozal Province. What has been planned, is for us, along with workers from Belize, to install a drop ceiling and insulate the gymnasium and possibly do some electrical work.

We are excited to be able to do this work as well as to establish new relationships in the town.

It's never just about the work. That we are willing to travel there, and bring resourses is already a big thing. The work would get done whether we do it or not. However, we feel blessed and priviledged that we can go to Belize and do some work as well as listen to the people and understand our partner better

Our main fund raiser 0 comments

Hello everyone. On Saturday evening, September the 16th, we had our main fund raiser. We held a pig roast in a most unusual setting. We had it in a cattle barn on the farm of Jane and Adrian Vanderwier in rural Smithville, ON. About 220 people came out and we served an amazing meal in a completly unique setting. It was great fun. Oh, I almost forgot. We raised almost $13,000.00. We called the event, Cattle Barn Banquet.
