We will return to Belize in Spring 2019! Keep an eye out on our website and The Keys for more information!
Connected via SAMS, we were delighted to learn of David and Mary Beth's Ministry in Belize. The breadth and scope of their work in San Ignacio is impressive and makes one appreciate how God calls and equips each and everyone of us.
We are excited to see how this partnership continues to evolve, as well as how the church in Belize will continue to grow.
Quick Facts on Belize:
- The country is bordered by Mexico to the north, Guatemala to the south and west, and the Caribbean sea to the east.
- Belize is relatively new in name, having been known as British Honduras until 1981.
- The Capital is Belmopan.
- Approximately 1,000 Mayan ruins are scattered throughout Belize.
- A typical Belizean breakfast consists of creole bread, corn or flour tortilla, cheese, fried beans, eggs, bacon and coffee, tea or milk.
Belize is the only Central American country with English as its official language. However, you will hear a variety of Spanish, Creole, and Maya in some greetings:
Weh di go ahn? (Translation: Hello, what’s up?) Creole
Bix a bèel? (Translation: How are you?) Maya
Buenos dias! (Translation: Good Day!) Spanish
Buiti Binafi! (Translation: Good Morning) Garifuna
