Meet Micah...

We would like to introduce everyone to our newest son, Micah John Daniel Gaither. He is currently 2 months old. Micah's favorite pastimes include eating, sleeping, and playing with his big brother Brandon. This picture was taken during a very animated "conversation" with Brandon.

April Update

Greetings from Belize,

This is an exciting time to be alive and be a part of the Kingdom of God. The opportunities to share Christ with others are so tremendous and far greater in these days.

This past month has been very busy while in the states. We were privileged to visit several churches and meet many wonderful people as we traveled around to personally update congregations regarding the ministry in Belize. Besides having the opportunity to share God’s love and the amazing things He has been doing in Belize, we made a lot of new friends and are looking forward to seeing many of them again soon in Belize.

With the meetings all over and business wrapped up for now in the states, Randy is back home in Belize taking care of everything there and gearing up for the upcoming teams. The weeks ahead are going to be powerful as we have three teams that will be ministering through backyard Bible clubs and evangelistic outreach in villages across the country. We also have a team coming to distribute much needed items in one of the remote villages. In addition, we have three construction teams that will be constructing our church and preschool in More Tomorrow and completing the internet project in Valley of Peace.

Sheila and Micah are still waiting to receive Micah’s passport before they can return to Belize. Brandon is staying behind with mom to help with Micah and keep up with his school work since mom is his teacher. Brandon really wanted to return to Belize with Randy, but his teacher would not grant him an extended spring break.

On the topic of school, we are getting ready for the 2009-2010 school year in Belize. We are thankful for those who sponsored children over the past year enabling them to attend school. Unfortunately many families cannot afford an education for their children as the cost averages $250 US dollars per child per school year. Please let us know if you would like to sponsor a child for the upcoming school year.

Thank you for being a part of this ministry. We really cannot thank you enough for your generous and faithful support, prayers, and encouragement. May the Lord bless you!

Randy, Sheila, Brandon, and Micah Gaither
