Belize - Orange Walk Mission Trip

An experience that is both impactful and transformational in Orange Walk Town, Belize.


March 12-20, 2016


Bethel students will travel to Central America to serve communities in the Corozal villages in northern Belize: Para Eso, Xibe, San Narciso, and Ranchito.

The Experience

"This partnership is not only impactful, it is also transformational." These are the words of the 2013 team leader for this trip. This team partners with the men and women of Trial Farm Full Gospel Mission Church in Orange Walk Town. This church began in a backyard in 1991 with two families and has grown to a vibrant community of faith. Our team will work primarily in Orange Walk Town, finding many ways to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will be led by Pastor Garcia who is a veteran pastor of over 40 years.

Our 2016 team is expecting to do home visits, prayer walks, sharing scripture stories in local schools, worshipping each night, and delivering a VBS each day. We celebrate the work of God, which is already active and alive through our local church partner and we look forward to the ways in which we will work alongside them in what God is doing through them!

Our Ministry Partner

Praying Pelican Missions is a leader in short-term missions to Belize.

Trip Cost

This team of 20 students has a team fundraising goal of $40,000 (about $2,000 per person). Fundraising will be a major part of the year for this team, which will tremendously help the financial bottom line!

Who Should Participate

This trip is ideally suited for students with a desire for highly relational ministry. Spanish language is very helpful, but not required. Strong communication skills are needed as well as flexibility in expectations day-to-day. Students must be ready for physical and spiritual rigor, and expect personal and spiritual transformation as they invest more of themselves in this endeavor.

Next Steps

Interviews are conducted in October and November of every year for the following spring.

Teams for Spring 2016 are set and have begun preparing for the trip. If you are interested in participating in Spring 2017, please check back in Fall 2016 and apply early.
