"The best way to switch to global thinking is to just get up and go on a short-term mission project to another country! There's simply no substitute for hands-on, real life experience in another culture. I urge you to save and do whatever it takes to participate in a short-term mission trip overseas as soon as possible. It will enlarge your heart, expand your vision, stretch your faith, deepen your compassion, and fill you with a kind of joy you have never experienced. It could be the turning point in your life."
(Chapter 38, pages 301 and 302).

“Belize has changed the face of missions for our church like nothing else we have done. We have had great missionary speakers, showed powerful videos, and preached informative sermons. However, anyone who has ever joined The Iguana Squad to Belize has been sparked with an appreciation and zeal for missionary work lie nothing else we attempt. With a united heart and many hands, The Iguana Squad has become a means by which our people have great joy in fulfilling the Great Commission. Because of this, I fully support any and all efforts toward our work in Belize.”
Tim Kellerman. Former Pastor, First Church of the Nazarene, Conway, AR

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or what kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
Forest E. Witcraft, American Scholar, Teacher & Scout Leader, 1967-1984

About Us

During a personal visit to Belize in 2000, our founder Rik Sowell discovered a great need for educational facilities. Many children were waiting to attend school but facilities were either inadequate or did not exist. Rik returned to the states with a burden to construct classroom space for existing private school programs with a history of success.

“You will never understand your own blessings until you see for yourself how others who are far away live. You will always appreciate God’s blessings when you give yourself away in service on a mission trip. Belize provides an opportunity to do both among a grateful people in a beautiful setting.” Dr. Dale Wicker, Pastor, First Baptist Church, Conway, AR
