Have you been considering the next big adventure with your family? We've got you covered! Our family mission trips in Belize are 7 days and 6 nights, and you can pick any dates year round. The trip is designed for two to six people (which could be two small families, or even three couples). On the trip you’ll partner with a local family, staying in their home if you choose to do the home stay. The trip will include five days of ministry (with one half day of recreation mixed in) and two days of recreation in which you go out to the tropical island of Caye Caulker (arguably the most relaxed – and relaxing – place in the world). You’ll experience life in a Belizean village, and we can guarantee the trip will be a source of great memories, learning experiences, and conversation for years to come. Find out more information at

The Messiah team had a great Sunday with their church partner! They helped lead Sunday school, finished up working on some construction projects, and had a closing service together. Please keep them in your prayers as they enjoy a day of debriefing on Caye Caulker. May God be glorified by the conversations and prayers! ... See MoreSee Less

What People Are Saying

The beauty of a partnership with Thirst Missions is the ability to create ongoing relationships with a specific community and church in Belize so true relationships are formed that result in a lasting impact.

Bonnie, Judson University

The partnerships were very well organized and helped foster meaningful, long term relationships

Dave, John Knox Presbyterian Church

Thirst Missions does an excellent job with all the logistics – from lodging and food to customizing the trip towards your strengths, so that you do not have to worry about all of that and can focus on what God brought you there to do.

Donny, Graceview Baptist Church

Long-Term Partnerships


We invite you to consider developing a long-term partnership with a congregation in Belize.  Bring a group the first year and see if you would like to return the following year or years to the same church.  We have numerous churches from North America who have partnered with a Belizean church for 3-7 years.   What a blessing it’s been for both congregations!  Thirst Missions is excited to be a part of lining up and following through on these long-term partnerships. If this type of longer-term ministry is part of your philosophy of ministry, we would love to work with you to partner long-term or short-term in ministry to the same community and congregation in Belize.
