Belize Experience Trip 2018
Belize is a country of great beauty and great need. It is a country rich in culture and charm, and full of warm, hospitable people. It is possibly one of the most diverse countries in Central America where Mayan, mestizo, and Creole culture are all prominent in various parts of the country. It is often referred to as the Jewel of the Caribbean boasting the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world, a dense jungle, and Maya Mountains. Belize is also the only country in Central America where English is the official language.
On this trip, we will be partnering with Queen Street Church through Praying Pelican Missions by helping them show their community that they matter to God and that He wants a relationship with them. We will potentially be partaking in some light construction projects, working with kids, and doing some evangelism outreaches.
The total cost for the trip is $1,600 per person. This covers: airfare, ground transportation, lodging, food, project costs and a sightseeing day. This does not include passport fees, money for souvenirs, and other personal purchases. We will discuss how to raise the funds needed to go on the trip.
