Mark and Brenda Liedtke and family
Serving in Belize, Central America
Mark and Brenda Liedtke and their daughter, Libby, arrived in Belize, Central America, as missionaries in September of 2012. They are sent by Grace Baptist Church of Columbus, GA.
Currently Mark pastors two church plants:
Shining Light Baptist is in English and located in Georgeville, Belize, right on the Western Highway, Mile Marker 61. This work is 5 years old and the goal is to train a man to be the pastor of this diverse congregation of Creole and North American people.
Iglesia Bautista de la Gracia was started in 2013 and is located in Buena Vista Village, just off the road to Spanish Lookout. This work is in Spanish and is currently in the beginning stages of constructing their own building. Many young people and several adults have accepted Christ in this village. There is much work to be done. The goal is also to train a man to pastor this work. Brenda and Libby help in both churches with ladies and children's ministries.
There are many villages throughout Belize that need a Gospel witness and a good Bible preaching church. There is also a need for addictions programs, youth work, pre-schools, and musical training. The Liedtkes have a particular burden for the Spanish-speaking people of Belize.
