Adrian and Rosalie attended last summer’s FUM Triennial in Wichita, where they met Dale Graves, Oscar Mmbali, and Candi Young. In Wichita, they heard about the need for Friends to invest in building a beloved community in Belize. Adrian’s background is in community organization and leadership development, and Rosalie is a retired math educator and a mentor of math teachers; together, they realized that they were equipped to make a powerful impact.
Adrian and Rosalie continue to feel called to their current work in Baltimore, also, so they are not making a full-time commitment to living in Belize. Rather, they are generously volunteering their time toward community coordination, supporting staff and curriculum development, and fundraising through short-term visits to Belize and long-distance work from Baltimore. They will begin a two-month term of service on April 15, 2018, and will discern the dates for future 2-3 month stays, hopefully 2-3 times per year. Please hold Adrian and Rosalie in the Light as they take on this new work! One of their responsibilities will be to revive this blog, so stay tuned!!
