Hello everyone! It's been so long since I've posted an update, and I really apologize! Things have been busy here in Belize, and I need to fill you in on much of what has been going on!
As I type, my parents are in town visiting me! We've spent most of the last week or so simply involved in the normal activities of life and ministry in Cayo, but on occasion we've been able to branch out and see a few "touristy" places like Caye Caulker. It's been a blessing to have them with me, and I will miss them a lot when they leave on Wednesday.
This past Sunday I was honored to visit All Saints' Church in Belize City, a church the Bishop describes as a progressive, urban parish. He was not wrong. It was a pleasure to see old friends and new faces, and I was well-received as I lead the service and preached. I cannot wait to be back again at All Saints' this coming Sunday as we celebrate Father's Day and worship the Lord again in song and word and sacrament.
There are a few immediate requests for prayer on my agenda for the coming week. First, please pray for my computer: it's been a week and a half now since it has booted up, and I am at a loss as to how to get it working safely in Belize. Second, please pray for us this week as we prepare for a short-term mission group coming from the United States next Monday. They will be leading retreats for our graduating Standard Six classes from the three Anglican schools in the area, and we are hoping to have a genuine spirit of teamwork and cooperation as we serve God and pray to be used by him in the lives of these students.
Thank you so much for your continued prayer and support: it means the world to me. May the Lord richly bless you all!
