On Saturday our 16-year-old daughter Maddy will arrive in Belize for a two-week stint as a missionary intern. She will serve with the MTW team there in the town of Corozal. Like us, the fulltime missionaries in Belize are currently hosting lots of short-term mission teams. Their fulltime mission team is a bit smaller than ours and they are low on translators.
Maddy will spend much of her time translating at the medical clinic, VBS and work site. However, she is flexible and ready for anything. Her experience with hosting short-term mission teams here in Honduras will make her a valuable asset in Belize.
This is Maddy’s second missionary internship and third mission trip. Last summer she served in New York City helping to train missionary kids. Several years ago she served on the Lummi Indian reservation in Washington. It is exciting that Maddy, who is already a missionary and helpful to us, has such a heart to serve around the world on her own.
Please pray for her as she travels by herself and is away from home for two-weeks.
