Believer’s World Outreach is led by Debbie Tietsort, and this is the fourth year this US based organization has touched the lives of the people on Ambergris Caye. By teaming up with Sagebrush Community Church Belize, the relationships and life change inspired through the love and service of each of the BWO team members is given longevity throughout the year. This continuity is key on an island where so much is transient. Debbie tells every one of her four years of serving the island with this ministry that, as much as they reach the hearts of those that live here, the team is always blessed by the overflowing love, hospitality, and friendship shown to them by the locals each year.
“At Sagebrush, our vision is to “Know Christ and Make Him Known. We get to “Know Christ” a little more each Sunday at 10:30 (in the Paradise Theater) through biblically based, down to earth sermons that are relatable to everyday life and infused with just a touch of humor. We strive to “Make Him Known” through our interactions with each and every person we come into contact with, showing the love, grace, and mercy Christ set the example of, free of condemnation or judgment. “
