Nestled between Mexico, Guatemala and the beautiful Caribbean Sea in Central America, Belize is a diverse and interesting nation. Once a British colony, it claimed independence in 1981. It boasts the world's second largest coral barrier reef, as well as a culturally mixed population. Descendants of early Mayan, European, Asian, and Middle Eastern civilizations live together in this tropical nation. English and Spanish are both widely-used languages.
This cultural diversity provides a great opportunity for the church. Although Belize is a professed Christian nation, the gospel has been lost in superstition and paganism. Life is tough and conditions are primitive for many natives of Belize. They need the loving witness of missionaries with a heart for God and the Great Commission. What would God have you do for the people of Belize?
