Wedding Bells Rang Again ! 
Collier / Arias Wedding - September 2008
Sealed with a kiss
The Carr's moved to Belize in 1977. Six months before John Collier moved to Belize with his parents and two sisters. Few Americans lived in Belmopan then  few Americans remain living in Belize for over 30 years. We were honored to be asked to host John and Reina's wedding conducted by Rev. Tim Tam of The Word at Work who is also a near and dear friend and does much needed work in the Beize City burial grounds and Valley of Peace.
