“Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? …Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense? …Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove.” – James 2:14-18

Missions Trips-You can go with Lambs group to serve Here’s Hope Ministries. They focus on improving the living standards of poor, neglected, and abused children and their families living in poverty in Belize.
Prepare Yourself: Often times when we think about preparing for a short-term missions trip we focus on packing the right items and making sure all of the details are nailed down before leaving the country. What we often don’t think about is preparing ourselves for the trip. Here are some items to think through as you consider taking a trip with Here’s Hope Ministries.
Check your motives: Why are you interested in participating in a cross-cultural experience? Is it your passion? A curiosity? Are you wondering if God might be calling you into some type of cross-cultural ministry? None of those are bad motives, but it is important to understand how your presence in another country can impact the lives of the nationals living there…either positively or negatively. A flexible, servant attitude will do wonders in drawing people into a willingness to hear the gospel of Christ.
There are a number of types of trips that are useful and needed within a country like Belize. Some of the options would include:
