Thank you so much for thinking about helping me fundraise for this trip! If you would like to know more about where I am going and what I will be doing, keep reading!
Where am I going?
I will be going to San Antonio Rio Hondo, Belize with students and faculty of Judson University. Belize is a tiny country on the coast of Central America and is home of the second largest Great Barrier Reef in the world. It also contains many Mayan Ruins which we will be able to visit during this trip!
What will I be doing?
I will be serving in multiple capacities. While I am there, I will be working with all ages through a VBS camp, working in schools, doing construction on the church, and starting converstations with teens and parents to give them hope in Jesus. I will also be worship leading throughout the trip.
Why am I going to Belize?
When I had my interview for Scholarship Day at Judson University, Dr Crume and Bonnie Bienert asked me to consider this trip. In my freshman year, I was scared and did not give much thought to it. This year, I decided to have a conversation with Bonnie and talk more about what this would look like. I saw the passion with which she spoke about the connection and the people in Belize and I saw the value of this ministry. I believe that God is using Judson to move in Belize and I hope that God will use me in this trip to further His Kingdom there.
How do I anitcipate being impacted by the trip?
I anticipate coming home with a broader perspective of the world and greater trust in God for what He does in my time in Belize.
This trip is a leap of faith. Trusting in God in the midst of discomfort. Leaving home is uncomfortable for me, but because of God's goodness to me, I want to go and do good for others. If you are willing, please pray that I remain calm in uncertainty in the airport, through customs, and in a different country with a different culture. Pray for anxiety to flee from me and anyone else on this trip so that we can enjoy the time we have there, and not be held back from God's work. Also, please pray for what God has for me on this trip. I believe that God wants to do something in my heart through this trip, so pray for open eyes to see Him move, and open ears for me to hear what He is calling me to.
Thank you again for supporting me! I can't wait to tell you all about my time in Belize!
Love, Haven Beyer
