Belize Blog day #2 March 3rd, 2017
Woke up at 5:20am to be in the van at 5:40am. We drove about 45 minutes to get to the start of the canoe race. Noise makers were being sold and kids everywhere had them. We even saw a canoe called the “Canadian Loons.”
We had devotion and God gave Jazmin this verse: Proverbs 12:24-25. Basically asking us to encourage one another when we go out to do our work project. Today that so happened to be painting a house, Chelsea’s favourite colour, bright yellow! The encouragement was certainly needed as most of us needed to paint on ladders today and most are scared of heights as well! God blessed each member of the team with courage from each other to pull us through and everything turned out beautifully.
While most of us were painting, Jazmin and Joe chiselled out a pathway to make pathways at another work site which is what we will be completing and cementing tomorrow.
We then split up in 2 groups. One to stay on the base and another to go pick up rocks to be cemented tomorrow, no sure just yet what for, we will certainly know by tomorrow. Now, the other group stayed on the mission base and mowed the grass outside the church on property, and set up the church for movie night tonight! We advertised the movie tonight by telling kids in Unitedville from the back of the pickup truck (with all the rocks we had gathered), yelling about the movie tonight! The movie you ask? Pete’s Dragon!
After these 2 projects we were again spoiled and brought down to a clearing by the river and swam for a couple of hours, just soaking in the Belizian environment.
And to end the night we ate shake and bake chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes! Such wonderful hosts we have!
