Since 2003, we have had a presence in Belize. With humble beginnings of a Vacation Bible School serving 180 children with only 7 volunteers, the mission has grown and expanded.
Over 50 trips later...Vacation Bible School is the cornerstone of the largest mission trip in July with over 400 children being served by over 40 volunteers. We are there over 7 times a year and have regular interaction. The adults and youth of the Village work side by side with short-term teams to build capacity and sustainability. The scope has expanded over the years with the addition of construction, dental, physical therapy, medical, adult and youth Bible study, sports camps, education, an elementary school feeding program and scholarship programs for students wishing to improve their opportunities for the future.
We are passionate believers...transforming lives through holistic sustainable witness, mercy care and life together.
We've seen lives transformed through service. "God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to othersGod's many kinds of blessings." 1 Peter 4:10 (LB)

Light in the Darkness
LaVerne, a woman in the village, came to speak to the leader of the team. She wanted to pray for the team and share a blessing. She spoke of how the Village had been a dark place, but had been changed. They were impacted by the light that had been shared over years of consistent service and ministry. We model Ephesians 5:8-12. We are thankful for the opportunity to share the light with those we have grown to love in the Village. Come and join us.
