Back to Belize

July 27, 2018

Dear Friends and Family,

I’m excited to be sharing another journey that God placed on my heart. As you may know, for 3 months in 2016 and 9 months in 2017, I served as a volunteer nanny for a missionary family in San Pedro, Belize, as well as Virginia, USA. They have a 4-year old girl, a 2-year old boy and a 9-month old boy. With much prayer and encouragement from my church, I will volunteer for two weeks in August to nanny for the Esquivels on the island of San Pedro. Israel has been working with local men hosting monthly men’s nights and weekly Bible studies. Alyssa is part of the team launching a women’s program through the ministry Shine and monthly women’s nights. I will be traveling to southern Belize to nanny the three kids so that Israel and Alyssa can take intensive counseling training to become RTF counselors. Check out this link to learn more:

I want to ask you to join me in this new experience and journey. A short-term mission trip like this requires financial support, and I believe that through you God will make this possible. I need to raise about $1,000 to cover travel, medical insurance, phone bill, and other expenses. I believe that this investment of time, money, and prayer will be worthwhile and that, through this trip, God will use me to touch lives and bring glory to His name.

While financial support is important, I want to emphasize the importance of supporting me in prayer. This is the most significant way you can partner with me as I follow what God has laid on my heart to do. Without prayer, nothing is possible, but with God, all things are possible. Below is a list of prayer requests for me:

  • Safety in travel to and from Belize and with the family to southern Belize

  • My health and safety in the environment and country

  • Serving selflessly as I nanny so that Israel and Alyssa can use their gifts to serve others

If you would like to be a part of this mission experience through prayer or financial support, please see below. I look forward to serving this family again and am grateful for any support you choose to provide.

In God’s grace and love,

Heidi Southwick
