Four members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. John (Missouri Synod) are in Belize laying the foundation for a Lutheran church there.
Pastor Robert Weinhold, Beth Gehrke, Larry Wood and Craig Peterson left last Sunday and will return on Saturday. They will train to become team leaders for future mission work there. This is a very poor country where the people are eager to hear the word of Jesus Christ. The people there do speak English, so communication is eased by this fact.
Future trips to Belize are being planned. Church members donated the necessary funds for the team’s airfare.
