I’ve been in Belize for a day and I’m already amazed at all of the culture that is here. Today, we visited a Mayan temple ruin and it was absolutely breathtaking. We learned so much about these ancient people and their way of life. This is the first time that I have left the United States and as someone who wants to travel, it makes me excited to see more of the world as I grow older. Along with all of the new experiences in new places, I still feel a sense of home in Belize. I feel like I was expecting a completely different environment from the United States. There are houses, streets, markets, vehicles, animals, and many things that I regularly see at home. It makes me realize that while I’m in a different part of the world, this is still God’s earth and it is beautiful. It is another reminder to me that God is in control of my life and that He is providing no matter where I am at.
