Saturday has its mixed emotions. We are happy to head home and see friends and family but leaving the friends we have made in Belize is hard also. After breakfast we take the team photo, stop for a brief shopping trip and head to the airport. It has been a rewarding week with the opportunity to serve the Belizian people and learn a lot about the country. May God bless this country. We thank all who have followed our adventure and supported us with your prayers.

Today we traveled about an hour and twenty minutes to a small town near the Guatemala border called San Antonio. We worked in a school and had a chance to check many of the children as well as adults from the town. The town has not had a medical team in eight years. The kids were very fun to have around us. A thankful and gracious community.
