Update from Belize high school scholarship student, Jenniah Tillett (Grade 9)

My name is Jenniah Tillett. I am 14 years old and I am in the class of 1Toucan at
Eden High School. At Eden I met up with a lot of friends. I have more than I
could ever ask for. Even in my village I have made new friend and I feel so
blessed to know that I have so many family, friends and church family wishing me
much success in my life. My favorite subject is English. I like to play sports and I
am so glad that my school offers me the opportunity to play. I especially enjoy
football and volleyball.
When I’m not in school I play with my friends and cousins. Of course, I try to
balance my time because I am working really hard to get good grades so that I can
keep my scholarship and make everyone proud of me. I really appreciate what you
are doing for me and I am extremely happy to be a part of your church family. I
will do my best in school. Once again, Thank you very much.

Respectfully Yours,
Jenniah Tillett

Health Fair at St. Hilda’s School in Belize

Greetings from sunny Bellize😊. Our dry season is starting so the days are really hot! I just wanted to send you an update of events at St. Hilda’s. Hopefully I can send you most of the pictures from our Health Fair. We had personnel from Ministry of Health doing displays and presentations. Each class also did presentations. It was very informative and enjoyable. I will also send some receipts for purchases made. We were able to install whiteboard in every class now. Yeah!! We continue to pray for you all that God will bless your ministry. Thank you all for partnering with St. Hilda’s. 
Blessings,

Children’s Day at St. Hilda’s School in Belize

The following is a letter sent to the Belize Mission Team by Jane Martinez, principal at St. Hilda’s School:

Hoping that all is well with you and yours. Just a few pics to share for our Children’s Day last Friday. We had a competitive but enjoyable time. Children were separated into four color groups. We played games and competed against each other. The Green group won. Please greet the church for us. I pray you have a wonderful holiday season.

Blessings, 
Jane 

 

Library Project Ahead of Schedule!

Update from Rev. Paul Jeffries at Bishop McAllister College and Anglican Seminary in Uganda:
Our big project we have been working on has been the construction of a library. I thought it might take six or more years because of the enormous cost, but we have made wonderful progress in less than two years. I will attach a couple of photos. We have been enjoying a visit from Rosemarie Kingston the past president of Diocesan ACW, with her husband and another parishioner of St. Lukes Gondola Pint. Darryl is an electrician , and he was able to wire the library during his visit. Another step forward.
Greetings to everyone your end, and thank you so much for all your support.
God bless!
Paul

The Hansens in Belize

A new family will be helping Father Alenskis for the next year in San Ignacio, Belize. This link has some photos of their rented home as well as some photos from St. Andrew’s church and the youth group going around town singing Christmas carols at people’s doors. You may find it funny to see everyone in T-shirts and shorts at Christmas!

EPISCOPAL CHURCH OF ROATAN / NELSON AND KARA MINISTRY (August Update 2018)

Nelson and Kara Mejia were back in New Brunswick with their children for a short time this summer. While we were unable to arrange a time for them to speak at the Cathedral, some of you may have had a chance to talk with Nelson at the Ordination service and reception in June.

It has been wonderful seeing so many of our supporters again and meeting new people, too.
Our family is very grateful to all those who have hosted us and provided transportation and meals, and for the fellowship that has been offered. We sincerely thank you.
Things are going well in our churches in Roatán; the leaders are doing a great job. Our Dean, the Rev. Nery Varela from the mainland, visited our congregations in Roatán in our absence. We will return to Roatán to continue serving the Lord  – Nelson Mejia, July 2018
