Alfonso & Elizabeth Ayala

The Ayala's are our sponsored missionaries in Belize and have been Serving Him there for over 30 years!  We partner in ministry and in mission together!
The Ayalas also coordinate specialized visiting teams, which serve churches and communities in a variety of areas—development, infrastructure building, music ministry, children’s ministry, women’s ministry, skills development, evangelism, worship, health ministry, and teaching.

Haitian Support Ministries

The Mission of Haitian Support Ministries is to worship and work together to raise successive generations of Christians who are morally just, educationally competent and socially responsible.
Haitian Support Ministries began with a short-term mission trip to Haiti in 1993. Since that time, we have continued to support Calvary Church and its ministries to the local community in Jacmel. Our primary areas of focus include Nutrition, Clean Water and Restoration Ministries.

Compassion International

When you sponsor a child, you care for and encourage them through prayer, letter writing and financial support. That support empowers a local church to individually and holistically meet their needs in a loving, safe community where they can learn, grow, play and dream.

International Justice Mission

Right now, children, women and men are being enslaved, abused and exploited.  We partner with local justice systems around the world to build safe communities, where all are protected from violence and slavery.

Belize 2024 Mission Support Letter

Friends & Family,
Greetings! Since 2016, First Church of God has sent over 300 different individuals to serve in missions and ministry in Belize. We partner with Alfonso & Elizabeth Ayala who have been serving as missionaries in Belize for over 30 years, and we are excited to continue this partnership!  Two Teams are going in July 2024, a Team of HS/College Students and a Team of Adults and Families.  There are ways for you to be involved…
PRAY: We need prayer partners.  We are asking you to consider being a prayer partner with us.  In doing so, you would pray regularly for the team, the mission, the ministry, and the lives that will be touched.  There is no need to sign up, just commit to prayer for this team and ministry regularly.
GIVE: Each of the team members is responsible to pay for their own trip expenses including flights, lodging, food, and other essentials.  We need your support to help fund the materials that are needed for the building projects, the ministry tools, and the resources we will use to reach people throughout the various areas in the community.
Ways to Give:
  • In the Plate – Get a Belize envelope from the Info Center or mark your offering envelope
  • Mail it in – Send in your donation to:  FCOG 2020 E. Lincolnway, La Porte, IN 46350
  • On the Website - (Select the Belize Mission Fund)
  • On the APP – On the Connect Page scroll down and select Belize Online Giving Donation Link (This will open a new window, on the next screen Select the Belize Mission Fund)
  • Drop it off – At our Annual Spaghetti Dinner, April 21st, from 4-6pm at FCOG
Our Projects Include:
  • Construction - We have constructed three churches so far, and we are working on the fourth.  We are also working on a full-service restroom for a community that does not have one in the village including a flush toilet and sink with running water.
  • Minister to children and families through VBS and evangelistic opportunities.
  • Develop, strengthen, and build relationships with people in the community.
GO: There are a few open spots, so, “get on the plane!” If God is calling you to experience a cross-cultural missional experience…GO!  Contact Pastor Ryan ASAP if interested.
We ask that you prayerfully consider making a one-time contribution. 100% of your donation goes directly to the materials needed to complete the above projects! 
Thank you for your time in reading, praying, and contributing. With your support, we look forward to seeing what God will do in this ministry opportunity. It is our goal and hope to have all donations collected by May 31st, 2024.
Pastor Ryan & The Belize Mission Team from First Church of God
