Belize is a small country in Central America that gained its independence from the British Empire in 1981. It is bordered by Guatemala, Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. As a country, Belize is very diverse as there are many cultures and languages living within its borders; colonization, slavery and immigration have played major roles in this diversity. Belize is the only country in Central America where English is the official language. There are approximately 320,000 people living in Belize who live in a primarily agricultural-based economy. Sugar is the main crop in Belize, though the banana industry is also key in boosting the economy. Tourism is also an expanding industry as ancient Mayan ruins and beautiful Caribbean coastlines and reefs are an increasing attraction for visitors. Religious freedom is guaranteed in Belize and it is a predominantly Christian nation with 49.6% of Belizeans adhering to Roman Catholic practices and 27% Protestant.
Teen Missions in Belize is located near Orange Walk Town. It was founded in 2005 and is one of the newest bases in the worldwide ministry of Teen Missions. When first purchased, the property was a mass of jungle, but has since been developed into a beautiful base. The first and only “Mission Camp” (youth training program similar to The Lord’s Boot Camp) was run in 2006. Since then the staff have been trying to promote Teen Missions and gain the trust of the Belizean people. The staff plan to run a Mission Camp next year, as well as open a BIBLE, MISSIONARY & WORK (BMW) Training Center and use the TMI property as a retreat center.
