Belize, Central America
Samuel’s Sanctuary is a non-profit ministry devoted to providing a sacred place of refuge for people of all ages. Our prayer is that each individual come to the understanding that, just like Samuel in the Bible, they were dedicated to the Lord from before birth and He has a special purpose for each of their lives. In our short time here God has given us many opportunities to minister to our neighbors and families in St. Margaret’s village. We’ve also hosted a number of mission teams as well as interns and volunteers.
We are currently in the process of applying to become a vocational training center for teenage boys ages 14-17. We desire to provide a safe, sustainable place for these Belizean boys to grow spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Our hope is that they develop into mature men in each of these areas so that they can be Ambassadors of Christ to promote change in their families, communities and country.
Samuel’s Sanctuary is a multi-functional facility located at 29.5 Hummingbird Highway in Central Belize. It sits on 18.5 acres of fertile land, with a year-round river and several multi-purpose buildings. Through farming, animal husbandry, water/energy conservation and other eco-friendly measures, Samuel’s Sanctuary is moving towards self-sustainability.
Our ministry has the privilege of being part of Orphanos, a non-profit organization based in Memphis, Tennessee. The Orphanos mission is to glorify Jesus Christ through meeting the needs of at-risk children. Orphanos partners with children’s homes and missionaries around the world. All gifts to Samuel’s Sanctuary through Orphanos go directly toward the needs of Samuel’s Sanctuary with no administration fees.
