MINISTRY FOCUS:

The ministry options in Belize are endless.  Everyone in our group, no matter how young or not so young, can use his or her talents to make a difference.  Our mission trip could include kids ministry, orphanage visits, church planting, sports ministry, evangelism, and a variety of other ministry opportunities. Because of Praying Pelicans genuine partnerships already in place, on our Belize mission trip, you will find yourself encouraging a Pastor in a sustainable ministry that will continue to impact the community after you have returned home.

COUNTRY DESCRIPTION:

Located in Central America and the heart of Mayan civilization, the country of Belize features diverse geography, gorgeous scenery and cultural diversity.  It’s a beautiful English-speaking country, which makes ministering their easier for our group, but the country also has plenty of needs waiting to be met by our Belize mission team.

Belize was originally populated with the Maya whose kingdom stretched from Yucatán Mexico through Belize and into further reaches of Central America. Spanish originally settled Belize as part of the conquistadors but were quickly overrun by the British who named Belize "British Honduras" Popular for it's rich natural resources of mahogany and other lumbers, the British ruled Belize bringing in workers from other West Indies nations. This began to set up the diversity in cultural of the Central American country. Britain granted Belize independence in September 1981.
