The Inter American Division’s Children Ministries, Adventist Mission
Departments and the IAD’S Adventist Laypersons in Services and
Industries in association with ASI Mission 2000 & Beyond, have
just concluded the second cross-cultural children Mission project
in Corozol, Belize. The theme for this year’s impact was “The God
who walks with me”. The initial plan was for 10 sites but by the

District of Corozol namely: Central ,North Side, Ranchito, Xaibe,

thank Him for the many life lessons that are being learnt by
these young people even as they pledge their lives to work

the health clinic. Young people from the visiting teams worked on
