My goodness, what can I say about Armenia village? It's in the mountains surrounded by green & palm trees. The church we're working with is nestled on top of a hill & the view from the church is spectacular. You can truly see God's beautiful creation in Armenia.
It's a spanish speaking, very poor village so it's been a challenge for our group to communicate w/ all the people, but we're all managing. Yesterday we went to the Belmopan orphanage....52 kids crammed in to a small building.
There was an article written about Praying Pelican Missions (the organization I work for) which should give you an idea of the things we're doing here.

So, I have 10 days left in Belize. It'll be sad to leave. Just want to make the most of the time I have left here. It's crazy how poor the people are here. Their average income is between $3000 & $5000 per year. And things are more expenisve here! No wonder people can't afford ANYTHING here! They are so happy having so little. I think we could learn a thing or

Hi Brittany, I was with the St. John's group in Armenia Village last week. Everytime someone asks about it, I can't help but smile and remember all the kids at VBS. Where are you going after Belize?
