Sell Tacos! Not Children!


The Child Development Foundation (CDF) is sponsoring a talent contest here in Belize.  And the motto for the contest is Sell Tacos!  Not Children!  It will be interesting to see what the kids come up with.  The contest is open to youth 13-18.  If you are here in Belize you can call 822-0101 for more information or send an email to cdfbelize@ymail.com.

This weekend Tom and I will be going to down to the village of Benque to speak at a CDF conference to help bring awareness to pastors and community leaders.  We are only two of the speakers on the schedule and since we are going to a Spanish speaking community we will have translators working with us.

I will be speaking on the Spiritual Affects on Survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.  And Tom is speaking on How Effective Christian Counseling Helps.  We are excited about this opportunity and hope to have a good turn out in the area.

  2. That's depressing isn't it?! I lived in Bangkok for several years, and I'm sure you are aware of the child trafficking that goes on there. And of course many other places as well. So important that you are addressing this.

  4. Great slogan Alida, but so sad that it's necessary. I pray your message and God's Word is well heard.

    Have a Blessed Day!

  5. It is an issue that is heart breaking to us... and we pray for the day when organizations like CDF are no longer needed!
