Rev. Duane and his wife, along with their four children, have been sent by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's Board for International Mission to the country of Belize to plant its first Lutheran churches. Pastor Duane will work with and build off of mercy work that has been done in the country for over a decade by Lutheran organizations such as the Belize Mission Society, beginning in the coastal village of Seine Bight. God-willing the Belize mission team and efforts will expand from there so that work in Christian witness, mercy, and life together will spread throughout the entire country of Belize.
