Belize Journal

A monthly update on the progress and activities of the Belize Prayer Network, Belize City House of Prayer, and Tree of Life Ministries in Caye Caulker and Belize.

God given boundaries must not be crossed

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.1 on God given boundaries. At NEAB’s third annual meeting, a consistent theme ran through most of the messages. God has given boundaries to Belize—for marriage, family and nation—that we cross at our own dire peril. He has given boundaries to our home and family life. President Lance Lewis opened by exhorting parents to […] Continue reading →

Evangelicals focus outreach on homes, schools

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.2 on evangelicals focus outreach. NEAB has made many appeals to the government to uphold family values as opposed to legalizing sodomy and decriminalizing marijuana. But we are finding much greater receptivity in homes and schools. At our Annual General Meeting Evangelist Derrick Pitts stressed going on the offensive with the Every Home for […] Continue reading →

Guatemala border claim vs. Belize sovereignty

PRAYER ALERT on Guatemala border claim. Guatemala’s claim on the land of Belize goes back to 1493. At that time Pope Alexander VI proclaimed Spain’s right to the entire western hemisphere excluding Brazil. Accordingly Spain colonized all of Central and South America except Brazil and Belize. (Northward, the US evantually escaped its grasp.) In the […] Continue reading →

Evangelical appeals, no government response

PRAYER ALERT on evangelical appeals. We must admit, the Body of Christ in Belize is in a place of discouragement. We have been working long and hard on national issues, and the government has ignored us. More than two hundred pastors signed a petition against decriminalizing marijuana, and the government did not respond. We presented […] Continue reading →

Anticorruption measures called for in Belize

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.1 on anticorruption measures. Still another Gaspar Vega land fraud has hit Belize headlines. Once again we learned that the Lands Department then headed by Vega sold privately owned lands to Vega relatives for small prices, this time on Caye Caulker. Then the rightful ownership was “discovered.” Vega’s relatives were lavishly compensated, this […] Continue reading →

Deep corruption exposed in Belize, Guatemala

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.2 on deep corruption exposed. This month Belize and Guatemala were planning referendum campaigns to take their border conflict to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Now the deep corruption exposed in both nations threatens to undermine those campaigns. The corruption has reached to the highest places. Last week Belizeans discovered that Gaspar […] Continue reading →

Gospel campaign followup needed in Belize

BELIZE JOURNAL for gospel campaign followup. The Belize Festival of Hope’s long-awaited peak week, July 16-22, has finally come and gone. It featured separate evangelistic events for businessmen, pastors, women, children and youth throughout the week. It held crusades in Belmopan, Caye Caulker, Corozal, Orange Walk, Punta Gorda, San Ignacio, San Pedro and Stann Creek and […] Continue reading →

Profamily defense stops OAS LGBTI resolution

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.1 on profamily defense. The Organization of American States (OAS), representing the entire western hemisphere, met in Cancun June 19-21 for its annual General Assembly. On the final day pro-LGBTI advocates pushed hard to add further special LGBTI rights to OAS’ annual “human rights” resolution. They promoted “individuals with intersex traits” as a new […] Continue reading →

OAS nations sovereignty vs. LGBTI agenda

BELIZE JOURNAL PT.2 on OAS nations sovereignty. On June 15th in Mexico City the Hemispheric Congress of Parliamentarians met for the first time. This Hemispheric Congress formed in order to defend the sovereignty of its democratic nations against “hidden agendas of certain ideological elites” in the western hemisphere. Specifically the OAS, along with the Inter-American […] Continue reading →

Christians mobilize for outreach to gangs

BELIZE JOURNAL, PT. 1 on Christians mobilize. We are organizing for prison minister Kenrick Burns to hold a seminar at First Church of the Nazarene for Belize City pastors on outreach to gang members who want a new life. Diane Finnegan and Jawhi Morris, former gangster turned gang mediator, will speak too. The time is ripe to […] Continue reading →

Long range community development for Belize

BELIZE JOURNAL PT. 2 on long range community development. Our current Festival of Hope evangelism campaign peaks with a week of gospel activities July 16-22. But we must look beyond it for long range community development for Belize. Already we’ve planned a 12-week discipleship program for converts. And Kenrick Burns’ upcoming seminar for pastors will […] Continue reading →

2017 Prophetic Roundtable: prayer becomes real

PRAYER ALERT on 2017 Prophetic Roundtable. The 2017 Prophetic Roundtable calls 2017 a breakthrough year in which long-persisting prayers will finally see answers. The late missiologist C. Peter Wagner started this Roundtable of well-known prophetic voices, called the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders in 1999. ACPE has released prophetic words every year since then. The […] Continue reading →

New Reformation prophesied for 2017

PRAYER ALERT on New Reformation prophesied for 2017. On the 500th anniversary of the Reformation that changed Europe, the annual ACPE Prophetic Roundtable has prophesied a new Reformation. They say it will reach every sphere or mountain of influence with a Fourth Wave of the Spirit. Our Prayer Guide continues with the vast implications of […] Continue reading →

Pro-family curriculum to resist LGBT agenda

BELIZE JOURNAL PT. 2 on pro-family curriculum. Sodomy may now be legalized—at least until we can mount a successful appeal of that Supreme Court decision. But we must do all we can to see that sodomy is not promoted. Especially not in schools—where kids are just beginning to grow into their God-given sexual identities. The National […] Continue reading →
