The day started with a hearty breakfast and morning worship service. Paul asked me the night before if I would be willing to make a mission team video, which I was happy to do. So I broke out some of the video gear that I had packed and was ready for the day.
We started by going out to the mission site. On the site, there are two metal roofed pavilions, a grass roofed pavilion, and a well. We took a team picture in front of the grass roofed pavilion, then went on a prayer walk around the property, ending at the well. The local pastors then led us in a prayer in their native languages.
The official language of Belize is english, but there are also several other native languages, including Spanish and various forms of the Mayan/Indian language.
The construction team stayed at the mission site to take on various projects while I went with the medical and VBS teams to a nearby school. I stayed to document the setup and then tagged along with Paul, Steve, and Darwin to see the newly completed Rio Baptist Church. I had a great time talking to and getting to know these gentlemen and also getting a first hand look at how the ministry works.
