The Belmopan Church of the Nazarene from the Belize District reached out to several areas of Belize City in their “To Southside With Love, Part 2” event on April 6 by handing out love packages and praying for various needs.

The church held a previous event that they called “To Southside With Love Part 1,” which was stationary, but the “Part 2” was mobile and far reaching.  The Belmopan Nazarene Team drove over 100 miles by the end of the event. The love packages they distributed were filled with groceries and personal care items, and they were well-received by those in need.  Those handing out the packages also prayed with the people that received packages.  There were many people who recommitted their lives to Christ. Gang members and gang leaders were willing to pray with team members.

Church member Paul Lopez said, “The faith of many, including that of the team, were strengthened… (team members) walked into broken communities, and shared the love of Christ, selflessly.”
