Why you should serve
The need in Belize
Belize is known as the Jewel of the Caribbean. The only English-speaking country in Central America, Belize has a warm and welcoming population of only 380,000 people. With a per capita income of less than $8,000US, many families find food and education beyond their means. Join us as we partner with churches and schools to serve families and communities through child sponsorship, service projects, children and school ministries, and small business ventures.

In Belize, children are a big focus of the ministry you’ll be doing. Depending on the time of year, your team may have the opportunity to go into a local school (or schools) and present the gospel through skits, music, crafts*, etc. During the summer, our local ministry partners run camp where you’ll get the chance to build relationships with the same kids all week.
* Teams are responsible for bringing necessary craft supplies and should budget appropriately.
Whether you’re ministering to kids at school or at camp, we think it’s important to help meet their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs. Making sure they get to eat lunch all week is a huge blessing. Your team will prepare the food, serve the meal, and clean up afterwards.
Our local ministry partners are passionate about seeing lives transformed in Belize. They make building lasting relationships a priority. Much of what is considered “community outreach” is simply having fun with the locals. When their kids are engaged in soccer, jump rope, tag, etc. parents enjoy coming out to watch, which leads to openings for conversation and gospel presentations.
Missionaries often don’t have the budget for repairs or updates, so we ask our teams to contribute to the ongoing upkeep of the mission site, and help with bigger projects as needed. Additionally, many of the local schools are constantly in a state of needing repair.
