Southside Baptist Church, Fayette, on missioncomment (0)
December 23, 2010
Nine members of Southside Baptist Church, Fayette, led by Pastor Robert Parrish, went to Belmopan, Belize, this summer to work with Belize Vo-Tech, a ministry of Global Outreach International in Tupelo, Miss.
Belize Vo-Tech trains boys 14 to 16 years old in a trade, such as auto mechanics, welding and small engine repair, and helps them finish their high school education so that they can get a job.
Two years ago, the Fayette Baptist Association church committed to raising the funds necessary to build a house for American teams to stay in when they go to minister at Brazil Vo-Tech. The church raised and sent $28,000 to Brazil Vo-Tech for the house to be built before its team’s arrival this year.
The team put the finishing touches on the house, like installing security bars, and tutored and interacted with the boys. Team members also did street evangelism in Belmopan.
