Narrow Road Retreat - Belize

Our Mission and Purpose

OUR MISSION is to help fulfill the Great Commission that our Lord Christ gave us in Matthew 28:18-20, “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”

Our calling to fulfill this Great Commission has focused us on the more detailed command found in James 1:27, where we are told where and how to focus our labors in missions. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Our Lord's command was world embracing in its extent, it was a discipling of all nations, it was a call to be witnesses unto the uttermost parts of the earth. As the Lord's parable in Matthew 25:40 illustrates, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

By building relationships and sharing the provisions that our Father supplies us with, such as clothing, food and basic supplies, we are able to respond to those in need, to those who are unable to help themselves.

Our calling is to help these children to become lifelong disciples, who in turn, will focus their lives on achieving the Lord's command to disciple others and to care for all of the “least of these in all nations.

We are confident that God will use our years of experience in operating The Narrow Road Home program to reach out to those in need and to serve Him by serving them.


Recently I came across this quote from Mother Teresa which really summarizes my prayer for our mission. What an inspiration she was! I pray that I might be able to adopt this kind of attitude in serving the Lord and to be able to put Him first in all things and to serve Him by serving others in the way that Mother Teresa did
