Final Escapades in Community

BELIZE--
Although the ending of such an excellent semester can bring some sadness, there are far too many great things still left to do that keep us learning and excited, delighting in creation and each other.  One such event is the Trash Art Show.  We spent a morning picking up trash on our roadside, and were enlightened to discover that one person's trash...

Brittany (Bethel) and Sara (Gordon) toting their spoils
...becomes another person's art!

Lindsay's (Messiah) award-winning piece of art, previously in the form of trash
We also took some time for swimming in the river, visiting caves, and of course a healthy dose of competition via the 2nd Semiannual CCSP Belize Small Group Olympics.  It was a fierce battle of wills between "The Power Rangers," "Team Dominion," and "The Lost Boys."  To test the skills we have all gained in Belize, we engaged in such rigors as:

Lightsaber wars,

Nina the Lost Boy versus Flora from Team Dominion
Lime-bobbing,

Lindsay the purple Power Ranger securing approximately 17 limes for her team
Staring contests,

A stoic confrontation between Student Life Coordinators, Gellie (Lost Boys) and Josh (Power Rangers)
...and many more.  The competition was tough from all sides, but after much striving and struggling, The Lost Boys managed to come out on top.  Peter Pan would be proud.

On such exciting notes, the semester reached its finality.  By now we have all said our goodbyes, campus is quiet, and we are already missing each other... Thank you all for the beautiful community we formed here these months, and may God guide you in applying back home what He taught you in Belize!
