We had an amazing God-centered time in Belize. The July Mission trip had a two-fold purpose for my family. First, to bring a team of 20 to reach out to the towns of Benque and SantaElena. Secondly, our trip was to prepare for our move in January or February of 2011. Well, both purposes were very successful. Our team of 20 divided into teams of 10 to reach out to each town. We ministered to over 140 kids during the week and saw 55 children as well as adult come to know Jesus as there Savior.

Santa Elena and Benque. I also had to drive up and down some very rocky roads, but after the first drive, I was more
confident and did fine.

I wanted to update you on the move to Belmopan. We are still on target to move late January or early February. We think we found a home. This particular home is about a 10 minute walk from the University of Belize campus. It is right up the street from the only mosque in Belize – so we have something to pray about. We need a larger home to accommodate my office, guests coming to stay with us and a couple of people that may join us on the mission field. We also need a larger space to begin the church. Well this house has a huge balcony – it will make a perfect place to host gatherings for the church. We should know soon if we are getting the home.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers and partnership. I am so amazed how God is orchestrating this journey. My family greatly appreciates your prayers. Please feel free to disperse this newsletter to anyone that you feel would be blessed by it.
We bless you in the Name of Jesus: Lee, Robyn. Josh, Tori, and Erika
