What a great and lasting impact you’re making via VBS, building the church, and strengthening relationships... with God, the people of Belize, and one another. We’re proud of y’all. Enjoy the rest of the trip!

Really excited for every one of you. We all know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of grace, and I know we are all beyond grateful for it (I know I need more than my fair share!)...but when you get to be used by God to be on the Giving end of grace (bring an instrument of grace) there is no better feeling...it brings you closer to God and closer to each other and that only makes sense because it is the very thing you were created for in the first place. Soak it up!
