Belize Mission Trip
March 3, 2020
Belize is a small lush Central American country squeezed between Mexico, Guatemala, and the Caribbean Sea. An interesting fact about Belize is that it’s the only country in Central America with English as its official language. The team headed to Belize will be working in the town of Santa Elena at the La Loma Luz Adventist Hospital. This exciting project includes a construction component, children’s programs, and an evangelistic series.
