Belize – Full Gospel Church of God & Hopewell Children’s Center

The Ridge has several mission partnerships in Belize. In 2016 we sent our first group to Orange Walk and began a partnership with Pastors William & Loila Fernandez at Full Gospel Church of God. We have sent groups every year to Orange Walk since then! Belize is a country with great physical & spiritual needs with 41% of the population living below the poverty line. We have been walking alongside the pastors and church to help them further their ministry goals.

How we serve depends on the gifts of the group going, but might include things such as home visits, daily children’s program or sports clinic, partnering with a local school helping in the classroom, leading a worship service, doing light construction projects/painting, hospital visit, prison visit, women’s ministry night. We stay at the Full Gospel Church of God, sleeping on the floor on air mattresses. Showers provided at the church, food provided by church members.

We have supported the directors of Hopewell Children’s Center in Belize financially for several years. In 2021 we visited the center and will move forward with financial support and volunteer groups in the future. They are able to provide housing and food onsite for our team.

Hopewell Children’s Home is a safe place for the abused, orphaned, neglected and vulnerable children of Belize. These precious children have been removed from their homes by the government and placed with at the home. With your help, we can continue to provide for these children who have been rescued from terrible circumstances.

2022 mission dates to Belize

We plan on visiting both sites while there (depending on how many are able to go, we might split our time, or have one group go to Orange Walk and one to Hopewell for the week). Cost for trip will be between $1200-1800, depending on airfare. A $200 deposit will be required at registration.
