One of our members, Liv Gilliam, is on mission in Belize. Both our church and various members have been supporting her financially and through prayer over the past year and a half. Per her request, we are planning a short-term mission in April to partner with and support her in the local ministry there, and we need a team of 10-12 people! We will be partnering with them in organizing and putting on a youth retreat for students in the village, specifically diving into the topics of identity, sexuality, and worship. We will also be assisting their staff in canvasing, assessing needs, praying for and continuing to build connections within their community.
One of our desires, outside of supporting and caring for our sister, is for this to be an opportunity for us to grow in what it looks like for the local church to understand it's calling to participate in missions and obey the Great Commission. As the local church, we desire to glorify God by proclaiming Christ, making disciples of Jesus both in our spheres of influence locally and globally, seeking to establish and strengthen the local church.
