Vacation in Belize

Good Morning Students,

In Today’s lesson we will be exploring Belize! You will get to watch a clip that tells a bit about Belize and showcases some popular tourist sites in Belize.

After viewing this clip you will need to research- using or your favorite search engine to plan for and find the cost of a weeks’
“ vacation in Belize”( 7 days 6nights).

You are to use a spreadsheet ( Excel) to calculate the total cost of the “ vacation in Belize” The cost must include:

1. Airfare: You can select any airline and any week just explain the reason for your selection.

2. Hotel: on San Pedro Ambergris Caye: You are free to select any hotel, as long as you can tell me why it is that you want to stay there.

After calculating the cost you are to use a word processor (Word) to create a request for approval of your required expenses. Be sure to justify all expenses and to include:

1. Picture- You are required to include a picture of the Hotel.
(remember to site your source)

2. Map – You are to include a map indicating the location of the hotel.

3. Activities that will be available during this stay in Belize.

When all that is done email the completed request to and send me an update on Facebook: to inform me that you have completed your assignment and indicate what your favorite part of the assignment.

Look for Opportunity

Since its Summer and we have no Mass for me to invite you to I thought I'd share this scripture and a little prayer. Take a little time, it will be worth it.

“Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about His mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains”
(Colossians 4:3, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
When Paul wrote today’s verse, he was in chains in prison. He had been arrested for preaching the gospel. Everything in his surroundings shouted “limitations,” but instead of looking at his surroundings, Paul kept his eyes on the limitless God. He kept looking for the open door of opportunity that God would have for him next.

No matter what “chains” you may feel like you are in today, remember, we serve a God who’s in the business of setting people free. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, He fills you with His power. He promises to walk with you all the days of your life.

When doors look closed all around you, when your surroundings look limited, when you feel like you’re in chains, remember, God is still at work in your life. Like Paul, keep your hopes up. Keep expecting. Keep believing. Pray for those opportunities to be opened to you. If you fall, get back up and press forward with even greater determination to accomplish the dream that God has planted in your heart. The prayer of the righteous avails much, so keep praying because He promises to break the chains and open doors of opportunity in your life!

Father in heaven, I choose to take my eyes off my surroundings and focus on You. I choose to focus on the passion and dream You’ve planted in my heart. I trust that You are working behind the scenes, opening doors of opportunity. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
