“Over the summer, I spent a week in Belize on a mission trip and it was probably some of the best time ever spent in my life. When I was there, I met so many inspiring people while helping in the town [Los Tambos] where we were sent to. Overall, it was such a rewarding experience.
“I heard stories of how great Belize and the town we went to were. So, I just wanted to see for myself. I met a kid named Omar. He was only four years old and he spoke both Spanish and English fluently. He was the happiest little kid I’ve ever met. Omar would hang out with us, and it was really cool. He acted several years older than he actually was. That was my favorite part of the mission trip. I can’t wait to go back because I know I’ll get to see him again.”
