Hello, I was in Belize in July and August of this year. I was working as a missionary in the village of Chan Chen, but I also went to the village of Patchakan. I stayed in Corozal at Apartment Maya. Does anyone have any info on what the conditions are in these villages? Particularly in Chan Chen, the homes are not very sturdy at all. Would appreciate any information. Also if anyone has info on the Medical Clinic in Patchakan.

Thank you, Jenny

Hi Jenny.

I was also in Corozal on Mission Trip this Summer. What group were you with?

I am in email contact with Belize City. They are trying to phone Corozal but get no answer. They can't even call as far North as Ladyville, so I suspect major phone lines are down.

But, they haven't heard of any casualties.

I was with the team from Severna Park (Evangelical Presbyterian Church). Our team focused on evangelism, VBS and building an addition to the church at Chan Chen. What team were you with? Where did you stay. My trip was from July 29 - Aug 5th. Thanks very much for your information on Corozal.

My wife and I worked with the group at the Church of Christ Primary School on the West side of Corozal. We stayed at the Hotel Maya right on the bay. We installed computers there and worked with the Vacation Bible School. I have not received any email from them, and friends in Belize City have not been able to phone them. Some reports are indicating that Corozal may have been spared the brunt of the storm. It seems to be moving towards Belize City. Still, it sounds serious for the coast from Belize City North.

You stayed right next door to where we stayed! I sure hope that Rosita (she's the one who runs Hotel Maya and Apartment Maya)will have no problem at her location. She is so close to the water, as I'm sure you remember. Someone from my church is trying to contact a member of the Patchakan church. So I will post more tonight if I hear anything.
