2021-2022 Heart for Jesus

The ‘Hearts for Jesus’ mission project this school year will be the Belize Mission Society Scholarship Progoram.

The Belize Mission Society is proud to be in partnership with the LCMS Northern Illinois District. We are many faces, but one faith. Serving the people of Belize for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Scholarship Program

The LCMS Northern Illinois District is witnessing God’s work in action through its partnership with the Belize Mission Society. The BMS helps support the village of Seine Bight, Belize through a feeding and scholarship program.

The elementary school feeding program started about four-and-a-half years ago, when construction workers on a home site noticed that some of the children coming home from school for lunch had nothing to eat. The workers shared their food with the children but soon noticed they weren’t the only children in the area who weren’t getting lunch.

Mission coordinators began to ask, “How do you study if all you’re thinking about is where you’re going to get your next meal?” Hence, Food for Thought was born, the umbrella organization for the feeding and scholarship programs.

“This whole program is completely God-driven,” Dulgar said. “I never thought I would be doing anything like this!” She also stresses that the BMS works shoulder-to-shoulder with the people who live there.

And never for a minute is the most important focus of the BMS forgotten.
