Serenity Baptist Church
Belize became a mission for Serenity in 2000, when five members went and worked on a mission station and church. They also held a bible school in one of the villages. Visits are scheduled to assist in building churches or teaching. In June 2005, we had 12 members to go into two villages and hold bible school; and Pastors Jimmy Flowers and Richard Weeks preached.
