We had another successful day of ministry today. Ernest and Jon continued their work with the local Chinese storeowners while the rest of the team took on day 3 of VBS. The theme of the day was, “No matter what people do, trust God.” which is something I feel applies to both our lives in the states as well as Belize. The kids bonded with us well and grew hungrier and hungrier for God. After the tiring day of VBS ended, we had a very relaxing time both zip-lining and cave tubing. Our team then took a short trip to Mr. & Mrs. Kuan’s fruit farm where we enjoyed a great barbeque dinner (or “burgaaaa” as they would say here in Belize) and also tours around their massive 1,273 acre farm. We sat in the back of a pick-up truck observing all of the various tropical fruit trees on the farm such as lychees, mangosteens, and starfruit. It was undoubtedly a once in a lifetime opportunity. We returned to the mission base both grateful and content.
Keeping it real,
Prayer requests for tomorrow: (Already past though)
· Safety and Protection
· Kids to remain responsive and have a heart for Jesus
· Strength as we complete our last day of construction at the youth hostel tomorrow
