The Office of Social Justice Service-immersion Experience

Belize is hot, humid, and awesome. We landed in Belize City yesterday at 10 a.m., stopped at Sky Mart and "The Mall" for water and lunch (they didn't have Old Bay, we checked, BUT they were indeed selling machetes for 4 dollars), and started the three hour drive through the beautiful Belizean countryside to Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Jeff Abel's friend (and now our friend), Julio and his wife cooked us dinner-stewed chicken, rice, homemade corn tortillas, and banana cake. One word: deeeeelicious. Julio is quite the practical-joker (he told us we were having squirrel for dinner).

We fell asleep to rain pounding on our tin roof and cicadas.

Hiking In Belize

Today, we got sweaty hiking through the sanctuary (Bear Grylls style)...Click here to read more.

At the end of May, students enter a journey to Central America, where they help construct churches in Mayan Villages, work in Mayan schools, experience Mayan family homes and food, all the while exploring the beauty and nature of God's gifts in this glorious country. Activities such as caving, hiking, snorkeling, drumming and dancing are just a few of the adventurous activities that are experienced on this service trip.
