Departing for Belize

Wow. It's finally here — our departure for Belize, Central America.

BelizeMtns.jpgVery early tomorrow morning my wife and I depart, along with 4 leaders and 26 students, for St. Margaret's Village, in the Cayo District of Belize.

Back in February, when we had our first team meeting, this weekend seemed so distant. Back in April, when I posted about the upcoming trip details, it still felt so far away.

I'm excited, and naturally, I have some nerves about the trip, having never travelled with such a large group, nor to Central America. But even with so, I know this is going to be an amazing experience for our team.

The past 2 months have been crazy for our family, to say the least. Yet, Last night, I realized we've managed to sell our house, buy a new house and prepare ourselves and a small army for an intense week in Belize. I think we've done OK. :-)

250px-LocationBelize.svg.pngI especially appreciate your prayers for our team this coming week. Please pray that we would gel as a group around our goal, we would represent Jesus as we serve Belizeans, and that we would all stay healthy and return home safely.

I can't wait to share my stories, sketches and photos here on the blog when I return!
