Three years ago while hosting a rousing basketball contest for very eager third graders at an overcrowded elementary school in Belize, Central America, I heard about a place called Hillview. When I asked friend and teacher, Judy Waight, how Sparrows Gate Mission could help the children at her school she said, “The poor children of Hillview need a school of their own.”
"You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that you should GO and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain." John 15:16

Get away from the noise of the world for two weeks or more in Belize, Central America where the official language is English. Sometime after the initial two-week, mini-mission training course in Belize, (one week in class and one week in the field), consider investing one month or one year or more serving at one of our children's ministries in Belize, Mexico or the Philippines.
Hang out under the shiny stars in Belize and give the Holy Spirit a chance to speak to your heart about a new beginning. Expect spiritual growth and rewards. Discover and develop new ways to serve Him in any impoverished culture with classroom sessions and hands-on mission training and experience.
