Youth Mission to Belize - August 2006

As we prepare for our next short-term mission to Belize it is nice to post this video that summarizes the last mission. Young people from a number of Ontario Assemblies visited the Assemblies of Belize to help with children's work and evangelism. We were blessed to lead such an enthusiastic and joyful group of young people. Please click on the link and enjoy... (Oh!..don't forget to have your speakers on!!)

John 3:16

I'm trying to upload a few highlights from previous missions. Here Joanne teaches the memory verse during DVBS at 8 Miles community last August. What a joyful sound!

Oma feeds the chickens

I was pretty exasperated by the time I finally figured out how to imbed a video on the blog. However, it is only fitting that my mom should be the first to be featured - Praiseing the Lord while she feeds her precious chickens. My twin recorded this a year or so ago. He is here now and we are just about to jump into our Honda and head for Buffalo where he will board a plane for Belize. He will precede the team to get materials together and begin site preparations. So, hopefully we will be able to post a video or two during our mission.

Thanks for your patience as the blog has been hibernating kind of,

Valentine greeting

For God so loVed the world,
That He GAve
His onLy
That whosoever
Believeth In Him
Should Not perish,
But have Everlasting life."
John 3:16
Did you get the message? That's the best Valentine greeting you could ever recieve! Now look back over the verse: How many words are in John 3:16? What is the middle word? Notice the words leading up to the middle word show us God's part and the words after the middle word give us our part. What beauty and balance! "We love Him, because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19)
There is an ocean of truth in John 3:16

Countdown to Corozal

Isn't it beautiful?! That is the northern coastal town of Corozal (See below for details). Only three weeks remain before our short-term team leaves for Belize. Fifteen of us will be working with assemblies of Belize to build a new building and open up a new area in the north of the country. The location is called Corozal Town. I have been there on two previous occasions and look forward to taking this team to work in the area.

Coordinates: 18°23′52.24″N, 88°23′18.36″W Corozal Town is a town in the nation of Belize. It is the capital of Corozal District. Corozal Town is located about 84 miles north of Belize City, and 9 miles from the border with Mexico. The population is about 8,100. Corozal was a private estate before becoming a town in the 1840s, mostly settled by Mestizo refugees from the Caste War of Yucatán. Much of the town was built over an ancient Maya city sometimes known as Santa Rita; this may have been the original Pre-Columbian town called Chetumal. The town was badly damaged by Hurricane Janet in 1955 and was substantially rebuilt afterwards.
