Good evening everyone (or Goodnight, as they say in Belize!). Tonight I thought you might enjoy hearing from some of the team members. Here are some guest bloggers with their thoughts on the trip so far.....
Hey everyone! First off, hello to my amazing friends and family, I love and miss you all. We are having a wonderful time here in Belize and I just wanted to give a quick update on what God has ben teaching me so far! It has been super great to return to Belize this year again on Project Serve with such an amazing group of kind and caring people. God has really shown me how love is show in many different ways. Whether that be by encouraging words while hauling sand, protective warnings to put on sunscreen or drink water, having a friend care for you when you are sick, or by the boys always saying "Ladies first" before we go and get each meal. God's love is so great and widespread and I can see that here everyday on the faces of the joyful children at the home. Having a child fall asleep in your arms is a feeling only God can bless me with. God is so awesome and good and I am so blessed to be given the opportunity to serve Him in this beautiful country. I have of course been fully enjoying all the foods and drinks that I had to wait all year to have again and am having a blast taking it all in. I am so honoured to serve beside such an amazing group of people and to laugh with them constantly. I am thinking of all of you at home and can't wait to see you all and tell you more about my time here. I love you all and appreciate all the prayers being sent our way!
Hey Supporters! Were having an amazing time in Belize. Everything here is so unreal. The weather has been perfect temperature for us so far. Being able to serve God physically, has been tough but its also been a gift. All the Physical exhaustion brings us together more and more as a team and we continually encourage each other in every way we can. The kids at the kids home are so full of energy and love to hangout with us. After a long day of work, its energizing to walk through the gate and see their bright faces. Its a blessing to be serving in such a beautiful country. Its surreal to sit and do devo's in the morning, while staring, straight at the Jungle. This morning we saw a family of monkeys and it was a sweet reminder of how powerful God is and how he created everything on the planet for a reason. God is teaching us some great things down here in Belize. Before I go, I just want to say Hey Mom, Dad and Alex, I love and Miss you guys. And I hope everything's going well where you are. Thank you everyone for your Support and Prayer throughout this experience. We're all excited to come home and share all of our stories with you guys!
Hey everybody! The team is having a great time together here. It's been super sweet to see this team grow together especially over these last few days in Belize. God has been so good to us. The weather has been beautiful and scenery here is absolutely stunning. Even though this is my second time back this country has once again blown me away with its beauty and just everything about it. This years project has been very physically intense and God has really shown me how he can sustain me through exhausting work days. God has given me the ability to push down that wall you hit when you're tired and has really helped me know when I actually need to break, and when it's something you can push through. While everybody is sore, I think God has used this to grow us together by caring for each other's needs. God has also reminded me through the children here that His love goes worldwide. Their energy and unconditional love is so rejuvenating for this entire team even after a tiring day working. For my family and friends, I love you guys and I'm missing you all! Thanks everyone for all your support and prayers to the team!
