June 2019 Building Update

It may have taken some time to begin to fulfill Becky's vision in Dangriga, but we are now well on our way! It always amazes us how many people have blessed this project through their contributions and hard work- so many have volunteered that we’ve now connected two miles of steel to complete the floor foundation- 10,000 bends of steel to make all the collars, and 100 yards of concrete just to build it. Without a doubt, this represents what we are called to do in the villages in Belize- to give children a firm educational foundation in pre-school, by building firm foundations for those preschools.

Please continue to lift Carol and I up in your prayers as we head back to Belize in late July to begin preparation for next year’s work. We have strong calls both to live close to our granddaughter Mille and to serve in the country of Belize. Change isn't always easy but Carol and I know without a doubt that this is the direction God has us going- what an adventure!

We are now taking applications for teams in February and March, to continue moving and laying block to form the walls of the school. We also need volunteers to work with our sewing ministry team leader, Patsy. If you would like to contribute financially, you can donate through our website at starfishoutreach.org. You can also help us out by adding Starfish Outreach as your favorite charity on Amazon! Each time you buy something, Amazon will donate a portion of the proceeds back to use.
