Ministry Description

Summary

There are incredible ministry opportunities for your construction mission group when you serve on a Belize mission trip. This small country is the only country in Central America where English is the official language, so it will be easy for you to communicate directly with the local community members. Word of Life Belize recently acquired 25 acres of undeveloped land full of large palm trees at the foot hills of a national park rain forest. It is a place of God's beauty surrounded by a majestic landscape! We need skilled laborers to build cabins, build restrooms/showers, build sports complex, dining halls, meeting halls, landscaping, walkways and more. Construction mission trips are vital to fulfilling the Great Commission.

Strategy

We mobilize volunteers to use their skills, talents, and time in construction projects that will further God’s kingdom in Belize. Word of Life Belize vision is to begin land development to host camps, conferences and discipleship centers that will share the life changing message of Jesus to teens, children and their families. We also dream for the camp to be a place where Belizeans will be equipped with the Word of Life to reach their own generation. The goal is to house 400 campers and a conference center seating 700. This project is starting from the ground up and the perfect opportunity to get in on a long term ministry project. Construction is almost all wood so perfect for so many people to get involved.

Travel

Belize’s international airport is officially known as the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport. All international flights to Belize arrive here. As of 2023, the Belize City airport was serviced by the following airlines: Alaska Airlines • American Airlines • Delta • JetBlue • Southwest • Sun Country* • Tropic Air • United • WestJet • Air Canada* • Copa • TAG. Some Airlines may have a seasonal schedule, usually from December to April each year.

Housing

Word of Life Belize understands the need of a goodnight rest! Your lodging will be comfortable, clean and restful. We can personalize and meet the needs of your team as soon as we connect. Housing will be in rented locations until there is a place to stay at the camp. When we have housing at the property the trip cost will be less.

Transportation

Word of Life Belize will provide transportation to/from Airport and Ministry Sites

Food

Three main meals per day will be served to our team. These meals will be a mixture of local cuisine dishes and potentially, a few American-style dishes. Kindly help us identify team members who have allergies or dietary restrictions before the trip. At WOL we will do our best to accommodate these needs and all food and drink provided by WOL during trips is safe to eat. Purified drinking water will be provided for the team every day and for the cooks to use while preparing meals. We recommend if you have more severe dietary restrictions or allergies, that you bring along appropriate snacks.

Visa

All travelers must have a passport that is valid 6 months beyond your departure date. Most visitors, including those from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, will NOT need a visa prior to arrival. The immigration officer will provide up to a 30-day visitor's visa. If you stay longer than 30 days, you will need to renew your visa that has a fee of $100USD. Airport fees and all travel taxes are included in the airfare.

What to Bring

Word of Life Belize Camp property is in its early stages of development. Our tools and supplies at the moment are limited so we are building an inventory for future work teams. We would love to connect and explore different ways how we can partner and make this opportunity of growth a reality.

Dress Code

The climate is generally tropical, with daily weather typically averaging around 75 - 90 degrees Fahrenheit and very humid. Pronounced wet and dry seasons as consistent each year, although the intensity of these seasons varies by region within the country. We recommend sunscreen, bug spray and appropriate, comfortable and cool clothing. Church dress code is "business/casual" (khaki pants and polos for males. Skirt/blouse or dress for females.) For foot wear we recommend tennis shoes, or comfortable sandals. Don't forget your hats, caps and water bottles.
