Belize Mission Trip Update
As part of our ongoing commitment to missions, both local and foreign, here’s an update on a recent mission trip led by our student ministry.
21 students and 7 leaders spent almost a week in Central Belize in “The Valley of Peace,” building a preschool, alongside local workers. Money given to Hillside Missions helped fund the project, in which the floor and walls for the preschool were completed. The library Hillside built a few years ago was painted.
The mission team also taught school in existing classrooms and led an after school VBS for the children.
We celebrate the opportunity to be a part of God’s work in Belize! Please continue to pray for the families in the Valley of Peace.
