Stanley Kilgore, pastor of Center Grove Baptist Church, Cullman, in East Cullman Baptist Association, led a team of 14 volunteers to San Jose village in the Toledo district of Belize June 6–14. The team — 10 members of Center Grove Baptist and four members of Greater Vision Baptist Church, Cullman — ministered to the Maya and Ketchi by teaching Vacation Bible School (VBS) and a four-day seminar for pastors and leaders in the area and doing construction on a ministry center in Pueblo Viejo village. It was Center Grove’s second trip to the area. In 2004, the VBS ministry started with only 30 children but expanded to 1,084 children this year, said Kilgore, who began ministering in Belize 21 years ago. At this year’s VBS, the team saw 42 decisions for Christ: 28 older children, six youth and eight adults. Center Grove plans to return in December for another VBS.
