So you may be wondering “Where in the world is Belize?” Belize is a tiny country about the size of southeast Wisconsin, just south of the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. Our team is in the southernmost part of Belize, just north of Guatemala.
Our team is staying at the Belize Training Center, just a few miles north of Punta Gorda.
The facility is beautiful and in no way, shape, or form are we roughing it. The men stay in one room and the women bunk in another. Here’s a picture of the ladies’ room:
And the showers and bathrooms are comfortable, too.
We will have youth group and Sunday service in the largest room (seen below), equipped with instruments and sound system, along with brand new air conditioning units!
The Training Center is equipped with a lovely kitchen where Miss Bridget prepares our meals. Rice and beans, fry jacks, hamburgers, homemade tortillas, fried chicken…. We eat VERY well here.
Bob and Rhonda’s home sits between the Training Center and the Hummingbird Hwy. Below is a view of their lovely home (less than a year old) from the Training Center.
To top it all off, we are surrounded by magnificent views of the surrounding rain forest. We woke up this morning and sat in the shady side of the training center, enjoying the bleating goats, parrots sqwaking, and brilliant sunshine. Thank you, Lord, for this day.
