FBC-Midland Belize Mission: May 30

EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to a error on my part, I am TWO WEEKS LATE getting to these reports! "Better late than never," I hope ... there's some good stuff in FBC's posts, and I still want to share them.

A team from First Baptist Church of Midland is in Belize, working with the Toledo Christian Academy’s faculty and students, as well as the community around the school which desperately needs to be reached for Jesus. You can read about the team's daily work at their blog.

May 30 — Belize Mission Introduction

After weeks of preparation, the time for our trip is upon us – how quickly it has arrived! With piles of clothing, rain gear, work boots and shoes, toiletries, and various other items spread across the living room floor, I am surveying the options and estimating weight – the trunk’s, not mine! The 50 pound limit seems reasonable until you add a pair of steel-toed boots that feel like 25 pounds. But, that is part of the process – collecting, coordinating, organizing, assimilating, deciding and acting. From our groundwork to our mission work, we will follow that same path to taking our love and message of Jesus Christ to the people groups in the remote areas surrounding Punta Gorda, Belize in Central America.
