Hi Friends of Belize Mission Society,
There are many of you receiving this newsletter that are on "pause" from serving IN Belize. A second summer without wearing those Thrivent shirts everyday, sweating more than you knew you could, and sand fleas. Oh, how we miss it all (Can you believe I even miss the darn sand fleas?)! But, what we miss most is our friends in the village. The kids crawling all over us. The laughter and connection of fellowship and sharing Christ's love.
The Pilot Team in October gives all of us HOPE. Hope in a return in 2022 of seasoned teams. A year of reunion and reconnection. Thank you for being patient with the BMS as we do our best to care for the village and YOU, our supporters and servants.
Last week, St. John's Lutheran Church in Manfield, TX hosted VBS with their mission focus on the Belize Mission Society's Feeding Program. The students had a fun week of learning about Jesus and Belize. All week they practiced and learned how to say "good morning" in Garifuna: Buiti Binafi. We are building up future missionaries at St. John's. Thank you Miss Sue for stretching yourself and creating a BMS mission focus for their VBS program. Maybe next year, your church can have Belize Mission Society as the mission focus for VBS. We have resources available, just send me an email at email@example.com.
We couldn't do any of this without all of you and your prayers. Thank you for praying for the BMS, her Board of Directors and our friends in the village.
With much love,
Your Sister in Christ,
Prayer Request: Miss Harriet, Miss Allana, Kyle, Tridean, Katherine, Mariano, Mr. Palacio, Miss Maretha, Miss Moreira, Take Away Lunch Program, Virtual VBS, Miss Erin
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in him, so that you may overflow
with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
