A final update from Luke Boiarski, SCN on her recent mission trip to Belize City:
This past Friday we arrived at the newly built Welch family home for the house blessing. The homeowners Kevin and Melissa had cleaned up their yard to make their new space a place of welcome. For the blessing we had music that was inspirational, readings from Scripture and gifts for the family. Other family members joined us along with the staff from Hand in Hand Ministries. God was certainly in the midst of the gathering and alive in the hearts of all. It was such a joy to be with the Welch family as we celebrated the blessings that we all received over the past week and to rejoice with them as they start their life together in their new home.
Saturday, was a day of relaxation. Some volunteers went off to Caye Caulker to enjoy the beauty of the beaches and the ocean, while others relaxed at the Starfish House (our home base in Belize City with Hand in Hand Ministries).
Sunday, January 15th was a bittersweet goodbye. We left the Starfish House and drove to the airport, boarding our airplane for the States.
Our week together were incredible. Did we have a great experience?! You better BELIZE it!
