San Pedro Belize

College-Aged Belize Mission Trip

We are so excited about renewing the College-Aged Mission Trip this May. We have the awesome opportunity to be the first people from our church serving with a ministry contact on the Island of San Pedro, Belize. Though San Pedro is a beautiful place it has many spiritually hurts. “On Eagles Wings Ministry” works directly with individuals affected by human trafficking. We will be down there to help disciple that community and assist in furthering relationships for their ministry through a tutoring program with students from a local elementary school. We will be the wow factor!
