If you think about it, please pray for them. That they kids on this trip will be able to see past the heat and the meek conditions, and focus on the real reason they are there. That God will touch each of their hearts and use this trip to plant seeds as to how He leads and shapes them in the direction He wants them to go in the great adventure of their lives.
Last night I received an email from Oldest:
Hola from Belize. It's been a long day, but we're finally settled down at the compound. Had a safe trip down here. Tomorrow we start the sports camp and construction on something.The Belize Mission Trip Blog:
We're supposed to go down to the southern compound on Wednesday which isn't as luxurious as this northern one, but it sounds like a challenge. We'll see the church tomorrow. Less luxury means no wifi and no good plumbing. Can't flush toilet paper (outhouse).
Belize 2010: Typical Church Trip: "We stopped today at Cheers (yes they stole their logo from the early late '80s/early '90s) to have a snack and something to wet the whistle....
When it was time to get into the bus to press on toward the Roaring Creek Compound,,,,the bus wouldn't start. We prayed. The bus didn't start. The grown men all looked at the engine,it is in the back and grunted and spit and talked like we were diesel mechanics. The bus didn't start. Uncle Steve came back with his Leatherman pocket tool, and moved us all out of the way so he could work without any hindrance. It is amazing what you can accomplish with a Leatherman pocket tool. Now the bus won't start and there is damage to the wiring, too."
