    Project Overview

    A miracle of giving started this project. A generous family in Belize donated a portion of property to the Belize Assemblies of God for the construction of a National Kids Camp. Starting with an undeveloped piece of ground, the property now has several structures in place ready for completion. The buildings completed in Phase One will begin holding Adult and Youth Camps for training up the next generation.

    In order to build, we need team members to come alongside these efforts. No one should be expected to work alone, and that includes our missionaries in the field. Builders International is in place to come alongside them and be a network of teams and resources to help complete these projects and move them toward greater effectiveness in their area. For this to happen we need more people to pick up a hammer, to make the leap to the other side of the world, and to enjoy the life changing experience of being a part of the team. Sign up now to get away and start your international adventure.

    Testimonies

    On April 4 & 5, 2014, the camp was used for the Spanish Youth Convention. The current sleeping capacity of the dorms is 144 and there is no roof on the chapel at this time. There were over 350 in attendance with the facilities being used beyond capacity. Young people came to the camp from all across the country for a weekend of great worship and preaching. Many had the opportunity to come to Christ for the first time.

    As you extend your financial resources to this project, you not only meet the need in this area, but provide great encouragement to the missionaries and people working toward this effort. The effect is widespread. Not only does it make a huge impact on those directly involved, but it ripples out and penetrates deep into the surrounding community. When our hearts are moved together to do something, giving is a natural response. We give of our time, ourselves, our skill, our physical abilities and of our financial resources. In unique cases like this, the dividends are huge and make lasting changes. Thank you for sharing what you've been given!
