Children's Home

by Kadija Eck | May 28, 2023 12:39 AM

As soon as the team touched down in Belize we visited Liberty Children's home where about 60 kids are housed. They first gave us a tour of the area and we got to see where the children stayed, then Zack grabbed his guitar and we sang worship songs that they requested. Before leaving we took time to hang out with kids to connect with them more.

It's always a blessing to visit this community because of the strong bonds formed.  Being able to bless them with the little things such as a grocery bag and show God's love through this makes each time even better.

Bible Study

by Kadija Eck | June 1, 2023 1:36 AM

Tonight in Bible study, we first led worship and we were able to usher the Holy Spirit into the room. We discussed Psalm 23, learning more about the verse and digging deeper into the verse. The main point was that God has to be our Shepherd in not just one thing or some things, it has to be in everything.

Nazarene High School

by Kadija Eck | June 2, 2023 11:54 PM

This morning we spent some more time at the high school by having some fun activities. In this activity shown, someone was blindfolded while one person was guiding them through the obstacles and others were being a distraction trying to throw the person off-guard. This was done so that we could teach them that we may have many distractions in life but we should have our focus on God, our one and true guide.

Closing Service

by Kadija Eck | June 3, 2023 12:09 AM

Every year we spend our last day in Rootsville because the area and it's people are very close to our hearts. We had an amazing time singing, dancing and just enjoying each others company. We brought back our friends "Monkey Bwai" and "Shelly Belly" and also the famous banana split, It's always bitter sweet when it's the last day but we know it's a "see you later" and not just a goodbye.
