Belize Training Center

When Bob and Rhonda Farley arrived in this remote area of Belize, where formal education often ends around the 6th grade, they realized the need for training facilities. God placed on Bob's heart a vision for a center where pastors and lay leaders from the area could come and learn how to lead their people to the Lord and disciple their congregations. There was no seminary or Bible College in Belize, so this opportunity was certainly a vision from the Lord.

While in Belize on mission trip, the team from First Baptist also shared in this vision and efforts began to make it a reality. While the Belize people continue to reach for the gospel, there are very few to disciple and train them. With God's blessings, Bob began his search for land and found a plot where construction will soon begin. God prompted the heart of an architect from Canada to contact Bob explaining his desire to volunteer his services to design a center for him. The team from Bellville began to form to assist in funding and construction and thus, the plan of the Lord took root.

Before Mission Belize Team was formally organized, God has already provded:

* the land, the architect, a water well completed, and temporary housing for workers.

* funding secured for Phase I and contributors interested in future phases.

* a well trained, godly man to begin teaching Belizian Pastors how to care fro their churches.

This center will serve the people of Belize and Bob's ministry efforts in multiple ways:

* training facilities for pastors

* retreat opportunities for church members and lay leaders

* therapy facilities for handicapped children

* accommodations for mission teams that serve the area.

Phase I begins soon. Continue to pray for the efforts as God provides for His children.
