Church Planting Institute Graduation

One of our main goals here in Panama is to start Bible studies and new churches in areas of the city that are unreached. God has allowed us, the Urban Panama Team, to do that in a neat way. Rather than just us do the work, we have had the chance to teach Panamanians about church planting and do the work alongside them. For the past 6 months we have had a class of passionate Panamanian Christians who have been training to church plant in an area of the city that they have chosen to work in. Having completed the training, we had a graduation celebration to honor them.  It was a special day for our team, the students and their families. 


We began a new class this past week and had 23 new excited Panamanians show up to learn how to start churches! We had planned on 5 to 10 folks showing up. God has blown our expectations out of the water!

Peeks into Panama:Medical Fair

Peeks into Panama: Medical Fair

Recently, we were able to participate in a medical fair in an area we have been working called Santa Fe.  The day was a success on so many levels! Over 250 people were able to receive medical attention and medicine free of charge. Those same families had the chance to hear about how much God loves them and wants to have a relationship with them.  This picture is a group of children gathered to hear about the love of Jesus.  Precious faces and hearts!
