Harvey and Rosella have a heart for Belize. They both grew up in a Spanish Lookout, Belize and are concerned about the future of Belize. As a teenager Harvey found life in a Spanish worship service and became interested in more than the communities' Mennonite traditions and beliefs. As Harvey and Rosella got married a life of ministry began. They traveled to Bolivia in 1994 with their two children. Harvey became a school teacher to Bolivian children for two years. In 1998 Harvey and Rosella traveled to Honduras to provide relief for Hurricane Mitch victims. Then in 2001 they went to El Salvador to aid earthquake victims. They have fun and sad stories to tell of being on missiontrips. Their main income stems from a pre-fabricated house building company in Spanish Lookout - Plett's Home Builders. And while Harvey is a business man is sign at the entrance puts it simply: "Owned by God, Managed by His people, to Grow His kingdom." In Spanish Lookout the Pletts have founded Fountain of Life Church which has impacted hundreds over the years! The Pletts' hearts' have always been to help those in need.
