Today the team visited the Belize Central Prison. The Waltons’ joined us again and we went through security. We were able to minister to about 100 of the over 1,150 inmates currently in the prison. The majority of those we ministered to were Spanish speaking. For over an hour and a half we shared the love of God with them. These men are broken with nothing more to lose. They know they are sinners and need to hear the grace notes of the gospel: “Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Sean and Wayne are both fluent in Spanish so we were able to have a fully bilingual service. Afterward the team delivered 100 New Testaments and 100 Via magazines (50 of those Spanish) to the inmates.
After lunch at Sean and Vera’s, the team visited Mr. Cain, an elder at Grace who is blind. He played a beautiful piece of music on his harmonica for the team and prayed for us.
By 5:30 pm the team arrived at the Waltons’ for a delicious spaghetti supper. Then later we attended the meeting at Burrell Boom, the last meeting for the team. Sean spoke on 1 Corinthians 15-51-58 and the rapture, focusing on verse 58 -“Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain.”
After much chatting and fellowship the team returned to Ms Myrna’s to prepare for the trip to the Cayes on Thursday. Everyone is tired, very tired…zzzzzzz.
