Loving our little Belizeans!

by Derwin Rosa | March 25, 2023 11:33 AM

Children are a gift from God to be raised and nurtured with true care and compassion. Being kind and honest about God’s word will encourage them to one day seek a relationship with God. A positive hope can help them flourish into becoming strong, kind and tenderhearted adults one day.
