Belize Mission Trip & Donations

Belize Mission Trip Announcement 2014 from Shepherd’s Gate on Vimeo.

A team of 53 missionaries from Shepherd’s Gate is heading to Belize April 4-13. Belize is located south of Mexico and east of Guatemala. This little country has a population of 324,000 people and is the only English speaking country in Central America. The average income is just over $4,000 US.

We need your help to bless these wonderful people with the love of Christ. For the month of March we will be accepting donations to take with us. Each team member will be taking an entire suitcase full of donations. That’s 53 suitcases full of clothes, toys, books and more! You can pick up a flyer that lists the needed items and place them in the Fellowship Hall (or see list below). Cash donations may also be made to go for construction projects, children’s home, and other ministries. Label your envelope “Belize” and it will be credited on your giving record.

Thanks for partnering with us as we lock arms with the churches in Belize in ministry.  For more information contact office@sgatechurch.org
