In the summer of 2012, First Presbyterian Church of Ocean Springs formed a relationship with The Word at Work and its ministry in Belize. Over the last five summers, we have sent a group from First Pres to Belize, serving in various areas, including The King’s Children’s Home, Shawville, Western Paradise Community (previously known as 8 Mile), Pedro and Maria’s Sewing Co-Op and in a very impoverished area called The Burial Grounds. Our next mission trip to Belize will be July 7-14, 2018.
Trip applications are now available. The deadline to apply for the 2018 Belize Mission Trip is Sunday, March 18, 2018. Please prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to serve on this trip, read the cover letter thoroughly and complete the application(s) in its entirety.
