January 1st began with staying up most of the night working on applications for Samaritan's Purse, concerning the gift boxes going down to the southern part of Belize.
Friday, Jan. 10th and Saturday, Jan. 11th
Our National Leadership Team for Belize headed to host a "Ministry Partner Conference" with the churches in the south. This was a great but very busy weekend. We were really encouraged to see so many church come on board and partner with us to see to see the Belizean Children received the Shoe Box Gifts.
On Friday, Jan. 17th, Raoul joined our National Team for Belize on Plus TV.
Plus TV is a Belizean Christian TV station.
Our time was spend sharing the vision and mission statement of Operation Christmas Child/Samaritan Purse. We also had the opportunity to share the year vision for the south. As well as heading up north for 2015.
Monday, January 20th, for three days, two teams headed down. Our team was in Dangriga and between the two locations we gave out 13,000 gift boxes.
Friday, January 24th, my Pastors wife Pam, and a good friend Michelle and a few youth girls and myself, joined up to decorate for a good friends wedding.
Saturday, January 25th, Was the wedding. It was a very fun and youthful wedding. I really had a great time. And the food was also great.
Monday, January 27th, Was my first meeting at the Freedom House. I was asked to join the board. I will be praying and asking the Lord, what my involvement will be.
Freedom House - is a great ministry. It is a Christian Second Chance House, not a rehab. The idea is when the guys come out of Prison, the leaders help them get their birth paper, social security paper, a bank account and a job. Please be praying for the men and also for my involvement.
