Fishers of Men primarily serves Spanish Lookout by partnering with the Mianite community to provide medical care to nine surrounding villages.
Spanish Lookout is a community of Mennonites with a population of about 2,200 people. This Mennonite community moved from Mexico in the late 1960s and created this settlement. Unlike most Mennonite communities, they use cars and are considered rather modern. The community speaks Plautdietsch, which is a Low German dialect. Most people also speak English and Spanish. It is primarily an agricultural community, but also makes furniture and prefabricated wood houses. Additionally, it is the only oil field in production in Belize.
