Belize Mission Project Newsletter
Announcing the Fall Trip
October 18th to October 27th, 2007


November 2nd to November 10th, 2007


Well, 2006 was another great year for our work. The two weeks had over 60 workers and we treated around 3,000 patients. The dentists, physicians, techs, hygienists, audiologists, nurses, assistants and others did a great job. The medical clinic we equipped needed our attention and thanks to our team, it is now organized and running. It is a great asses to the local people.

As I have said in the past, this trip has a high percentage of repeaters. For 2007, we have many repeaters and alot of new people wanting to go. Therefore I may add a third week depending on the response from this newsletter. While I havent set a time, it might be October 5-13, 2007.

It is nice to know so many get so much from this experience by learning it is more blessed to give. At present there is an effort to bring a little girl to this country for possible medical treatment. People are willing to give time and money for a stranger. Even the Belizeans are helping by having a fundraiser. Contrast this with a story I heard the other day where parents were having trouble getting a 3 year old strapped into a plane seat. The family was asked to deplane. On a radio talk show, no one offered to help the family. Instead, reasons such as interfering with my ipod were given why they should go.

Please help us keep the trip going.
We would always like to have the name of people who might be interested in our project. Please pass the information on about the trip and then give me a call so I can include their name on our mailing list.

Here are just a few comments from some of the Belize Mission Project volunteers...

“I think about our time in Belize often. It was a wonderful experience. I would love to be part of your mission again. I feel blessed to have met so many wonderful people and been able to help in some small way.“

Patty Sweny

“Experiencing Belize as a volunteer with this group has been a life changing event. Providing these needed dental services in this mission setting is something I plan to do each year as long as I can.”

Dr. Linda Oster

The dental clinics concentrate on restorative (fillings) and preventive dentistry. Dental technicians make removable appliances, which has been a big success. There is a great need for dental technicians, hygienists, and assistants.

Medical clinics are always busy with patients with various needs. The medications distributed are so valuable and difficult to obtain in Belize. For physicians and their assistants, we focus on family practice type clinics. Where possible, we try to utilize specialists in their treatment areas.

This trip is very comfortable and non-threatening. The citizens of Belize are very welcoming. We are now announcing our next Belize Mission Projects, which will be October 18th to October 27th, 2007 and November 2nd to November 10th, 2007. This mission will be both medical and dental. Anyone is welcome... Dentists, Physicians, P.A.’s, N.P.’s, hygienists, dental assistants, non-medical help, and everyone in between. If you would like more information concerning this experience or if you want to sign up, contact the following;
