Belize Mission News!! 

Our August 5th departure date is just one month away!  A HUGE thank you to the members of Holy Cross for all the support you have given the team with the various fundraisers that we have done! 

We will have a needs display in the plaza.  If you would like to donate some of the listed items, please place them in the basket by Sunday, July 23rd.  Some of the items we'll be looking for are: 

  •  slip-on canvas shoes for school children

  •  baby items for age 2 and under, such as teething rings, infant toys and soft books (like Sandra Boynton)

  • school supplies such as pens, pencils, composition note books, scissors, pencil sharpeners, staplers, erasers, dictionaries, construction paper, and playdough.  (We already have a surplus of crayons, sidewalk chalk and stickers that we were not able to take last year.)

  • Reading glasses (1.0 to 1.50 strength) and sun glasses

  • Splash water balls, beach balls, soccer balls, kick balls

While in Belize we will be doing a morning and afternoon Women's Bible study with crafts, afternoon Men's Bible study, and providing childcare while the ladies are in Bible study.  We'll do Bells, Books and Balloons with the kids we encounter while walking about in the village and visiting and praying with members of the community.  We are also lining up some construction projects that are needed in the village.

Our 2017 team from Holy Cross:  Sue Dorn, Ralph, Gale and Rachel Kerstens, Kelly Moore, Bill, Kathryn and Aaron Lowrey, Annette Smith, Carol Rawe, Lydia Schrag, and Donna Peck.  From Zion Lutheran in Walburg, TX:  Cody Stephens, Jennifer Stephens, Tomas Krueger and Peggy Dickens, and Larry Meissner.

Please continue to pray for our team as we prepare to travel and share God's love in Seine Bight!
