January is always a time of transition at Belize Friends School. Now that the second term has begun, our focus is geared toward the preparation of the Primary School Examination (PSE). We also accepted three more students, bringing our total to ten.
On a personal side, our house was broken into again on January 14. This time some of Felicia and Naiema’s money and Becky’s laptop used for the school books was stolen. This computer had the Quickbooks software that was loaded last fall on it. The police reported to us since the house had not been ransacked, the perpetrator had to be someone who was familiar with the house. They also suggested the need for a surveillance system which was installed just a little while later.
This month may seem like a month that would make many want to throw their hands up in the air and say, “I’ve had quite enough!” Instead it has done the opposite. It has shown how important it is for us to be here in Belize and do the work we are doing. I am happy and call it a privilege to be part of God’s people and to represent Friends in Belize City.
As I conclude, I want to thank you again for the support you have shown us both in prayer and financially. May God richly bless each and every one of you!
