OUR STORY

Wow, where to begin?  My husband and I first came to the beautiful land of Belize in 2011 on a mission trip with our church, but that is not where our journey began... God put Belize in our hearts from the very beginning of our relationship a few years earlier.  We knew from our first time in Belize that the Sittee River area was where we wanted to be and two years later we were able to come back to find our dream property had been waiting for us all that time! 

 

Eden's Gate Retreat has been a work in progress and has been the dream that kept our family going. We went through several very hard years and the loss of loved ones. Our beautiful daughter, Kelli, passed away in April 2016, and after a long battle with cancer, my loving husband Alec passed in December 2018.

These tragedies have compelled me to continue our dream, and I am more determined than ever to follow God's leading of turning Eden's Gate into a Guest House and Missionary Retreat.  We have joined together with several of our family members and friends, including new friends we've made on the river,  to restore the existing buildings on the property which the jungle had attempted to overtake.  When all is finished we hope to provide accommodations for all needs, from a  hostel/group bunk room to private cabanas (eventually)! 

 

Eden's Gate is located on the Sittee River and only minutes to the beaches of Hopkins.  Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the jungle around us, we have truly found our Paradise here on earth!  Come join us in our journey or visit us as a guest in the near future!  We hope you enjoy looking through the photos and keep coming back to see the progress! God bless you!
