News From Belize

Emails from preschools we supported during our last mission to Belize, and some from a school that hopefully we will be able to support in the future.

 

Jose Chan, Principal, Corozal Church of Christ

Thank you for your support here is Power Point from the Corozal Church of Christ Preschool you had donated us tables, toys and television for our early childhood education also sending items that the preschool usually uses. Thank you, hence if you return to Belize we would appreciate your assistance again – especially the PA system. May GOD richly bless your organization.

Gilgardo Arcurio, Our Lady of Fatima RC School

Mr. Honig,
Thanks once more to you and all those involved in assisting our school to get pre-school materials, books, computers and other important things. Children love the things and are making good use of them. We are happy to be recipients of such wonderful things. Also, thanks for sending us your monthly newsletter. May God bless you always. We are looking forward to meeting you again.

Kind regards,
Gilgardo Arcurio
Principal
Our Lady of Fatima R. C. School

Orange Walk District, Belize

Elcedia Awe, Alta Vista

Mr. Mel Honig,
This is Elcedia Awe from Alta Vista, we met there this year when you donated an amount of things to the Village. Well, all is good about to get internet you know. I just wanted to know if you offer help to schools. I have in mind a school that you can check out when you come. This particular school excels in the top three in the country yet they lack class rooms, no computer room and a poor library. They lack everything from bookshelves to tables etc. Solid Rock Christian Academy in Dangriga. Next in mind is furniture for a lounge at Ecumenical Junior School in Dangriga. They also have only two computers for 300 students. Tell what you can do for them on December when you come. thanks a million

Mr. Mel I hope you got all my emails. I will be on national television tomorrow because my student won the national spelling bee. it is called open your eyes at six a.m. please let Solid Rock Preschool in Dangriga be one!

The above emails from Elcedia highlight the issues that most schools are facing in under-developed and developing nations. Dedicated teachers like Ms. Awe are greatly needed, as is the help we give. Hopefully we can help her school.

May/June Have Been Banner Months

Collections for missions to Jamaica and Belize have hit an all time high these past two months. We now have almost all the product we need for our next mission to Jamaica. We still have to purchase many items but we must wait for Grant Approval first.
