(Shenandoah) -- Belize Missionary Dr. Paul Whisnant is speaking on his over three decades of experiences at several KMAland churches later this month. Members of the Southwest Iowa Belize Mission will be hosting Whisnant at five churches on August 27-28, including at the New Beginnings Church in Shenandoah at noon and Vine Street Bible Church in Glenwood at 5 p.m. on the 27th. In addition, the Hillsdale Church near Glenwood, Clarinda United Methodist Church, and Presbyterian Church in Red Oak will host the missionary on the 28th at 9 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m., respectively. After an original one-week mission to Belize at 18 years old and seeing several families in poverty and malnourished, Whisnant tells KMA News he felt a calling to establish a more permanent mission in the Central American country. Thus he took a one-way trip in 1990.
