Youth Mission Trip to Belize 2022

July 5 – 12, 2022

The NextGen Ministry of Calvary Road (NG712 & Rise Members) are once again headed down to Central America to the great Orange Walk District of Belize. This will be our 5th mission trip to Orange Walk and the 5th visit to the wonderful church family of Iglesia De Dios Pentecostes Lirio de los Valles (Lily of the Valley). Through the years, our team has developed deep and lasting relationships with the people of Orange Walk. Their love for us and ours for them have cultivated a very prosperous ministry partnership where we continue to see the hand of God work through our partnership.

 

This year, we, Lord willing, will be involved in a church expansion project where we will help construct a new and additional education space for their growing church. We will also be joining in to offer hospital care ministry, street evangelism, home visits, mercy ministry through Blessing Bags, and provide a Vacation Bible School (VBS) for the children of Orange Walk. In years past we have been blessed to minister to over 120 children during our weekly VBS program. During VBS we share Bible stories, provide Christian music and dancing for the children, as well as craft projects, sports ministry, and snacks. When the children come to VBS, their smiling and eager faces warm the hearts of our mission team and this is one of the highlights of our week on mission.

The projected cost for each team member’s trip is $2,100.00. We thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support as we, once again, head to Belize. We are bringing new team members this year as well as many who have been all four times in the past.

 

We are thankful for the opportunity to minister in this fashion and we look forward to providing a mission report to Calvary Road very soon after we return.

 

May God bless your loving support for our adults, teens, and college students.

My life verse is John 15:5, “I Am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” (ESV).


 Every time we go to the mission field lives are changed.  Usually, it is our own as we see needs met and return thankful for the blessings, we often take for granted at home in America. We hope to make a positive difference in lives while on mission this summer in Central America.

That leads into my life verse which is Proverbs 27-17 and it says that “Iron sharpeneth iron so man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend”. This verse reminds me that I must look out for my fellow man and help them deepen their relationship with our Lord. It also reminds me to be thankful for the people in my life and what they have taught me. I would not be the Christian that I am today if I never met my church family.

Kevin Corey

NextGen Pastor

Greetings from Kevin Corey, the NextGen Pastor at Calvary Road Baptist Church. This is my fifth trip to Orange Walk Belize and I can’t wait to get back in-country. The wonderful people of Belize are such a joy to be around. We are family, and have been since our first trip in 2016. We do life together throughout the year over Facebook Messenger audio/video and we share each other’s praises and burdens. What a joy it is to share Christ with the village-people of Orange Walk. It is also a very special honor to worship with the people of Lily of the Valley Church. The children of Orange Walk are my heart and our ministry to them through Vacation Bible School each summer is a highlight of my year.

Did I mention how good the food is? Oh my! Delicious food and such special people who serve us while we’re there. God is honored every year while we’re in Belize and I look forward to sharing fellowship with our friends again this summer. My favorite Bible verse is Romans 1:16, which states, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes – to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” May God be praised!

Sharron Cook

NG712 Leader

Hi, my name is Sharron Cook. I’ve served at Calvary Road Baptist Church in many capacities, vocalist in a music group, nursery worker, elementary Sunday school teacher, AWANA leader, musician in a youth band, women’s ministry, and now I’m a youth leader in our high school NextGen ministry. I’ve
been called to join a group of youth and youth leaders to go on a mission trip to Orange Walk, Belize in July 2022.

read more

While there we will hold several days of Vacation Bible School for about 120 children; make and give out blessing bags full of food staples, the gospel message, and a bible; help our host church with a building expansion; engage the locals and tourist in Caye Caulker about Jesus and give them Bibles. Two Bible verses I have been memorizing are in Romans 8:31-32, which say, “What then shall
We say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” We serve a gracious God, who loves us and doesn’t want things FROM us, but wants things FOR us. Won’t you share in the blessing by helping me change lives in Belize? By doing so, it will change your life too.

Hannah Dawson

Junior at George Mason University

Hi! My name is Hannah Dawson and I’m a junior at George Mason University. I am currently 21 and have had the amazing opportunity to travel to Belize since I was 15. This will be my 5th year going directly to Lirio De Los Valles and my 6th mission trip overall. I would say the people of Belize humbled me and changed my life forever as a young, immature 15-year-old.

These sweet people opened my eyes and made me realize how blessed I am to live the life I do. What separates the Belizeans from us Americans is their ability to find fulfillment in non-materialistic things. They are the most generous people even when they have little to offer. I can truly say that we as a mission team travel into these less fortunate areas to bless others, yet we always come out blessed in unspeakable ways. Your support and prayers are beyond appreciated.

Sherri Dawson

I am so very excited to be returning to Belize for the 10th time serving with the young people of Calvary Road Baptist Church. My name is Sherri Dawson, and I am a stay-at-home grandma (who doesn’t stay home much) who loves on her babies (3 adult children & husband), grandbabies (4 with #5 on the way), and my (4) fur babies. I serve in a variety of ministries, but love cooking for our youth and growing with them. While in Belize, we will be doing Blessing Bags, Vacation Bible School, working on a church expansion project and ministering to the amazing people of Orange Walk.

I especially love cooking and talking with the precious women of the church and bonding over our love for Christ. I have had the honor and privilege of serving with all three of my daughters on mission trips and have first-hand witnessed the growth in our youth as they serve others. They learn life lessons at a young age that helps direct their heart toward service and God’s infinite love. The verse God has laid on my heart is Titus 3:14. In these verses, Paul is telling us what everyone should live in such a way that they will have what it takes to help others at any given moment. Your prayers and financial support of these trips are making an impact in both the people of Belize, and those of us who go. Thank you!

My life verse is 1 Corinthians 16:14. “Let all that you do be done in love”.(ESV).
Every time we go to the mission field we leave the comfort of our homes our patience is tested but the love we receive and experience exceeds any discomfort. We value and sort our lives into a different perspective. The experience changes our lives and those who we seek to serve. We return thankful for the blessings we often take for granted at home in America. We hope to make a positive difference in lives while on mission this summer in Central America. I pray God uses my team and I, to do His will and we can contribute to the growth of His kingdom.

My life verse is Philippians 4:13, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”

Ramiro Maya Jr.

RISE Leader

My name is Ramiro Maya Jr. AKA ‘JR’. I serve the Lord within the Youth Ministry at Calvary Road Baptist Church, and during the workweek, I serve Him as a Soldier in the United States Army. My life verse relates to my profession and birthdate, John 3:16 For God so loved the world, He gave His only Son, for whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. There is no greater love than sacrificing one’s life for one’s friend. One Soldier’s ultimate sacrifice multiplied x infinity = Jesus Christ crucified. We need the world to meet the ultimate friend in Christ.

Sean Smith

Junior at Thomas Edison HS

Hello, my name is Sean Smith. I’m an 11th grade student who will be joining our ministry in Belize this summer. While this is my first missions’ trip, I am no stranger to selfless service. For most of my life I have been a boy scout and even been inducted into the Order of the Arrow, a scouting honor society dedicated to service projects. I came to CRBC almost 5 years ago where I got saved and baptized shortly after. Since then, I’ve been an active student of the Next-gen 712 ministry. We as a ministry can provide those living in Orange Walk with many services including blessing bags, vacation bible school, home cleaning and repairs, and even construction projects for their church.

The verse I live by is Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in the power of your hand to do so” (NKJV). God has used this verse to help me realize my passion in trauma medicine which is why I now aspire to be a trauma nurse and reservist in the army nurse corps. I hope to take the passion and gifts God has granted me to benefit the Belizean’s lives this summer!

My life verse is Joshua 1:9, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (NKJV). There are
often moments when we are missing the answers to the challenges we face, and in those times should we put our faith in God. We hope to put our faith in God through this pandemic to make a positive impact while on our missions trip to Belize.
