Countdown to Panama 2017! The planning is complete, departure is set for THIS Saturday morning. Our team is anticipating another trip filled with laughter, tears and many God moments that are sure to take our breath away! For some, it will be their first experience on a Naz Mission Team to Panama, for others, this will be our second trip. I remember every moment of those first days and look forward to seeing the new and familiar faces of Espave, Playa Chiquita and the Cuna Village. Our plans include some building projects, vacation Bible school, a visit to Espave and of course, the children....who could forget them? Just the thought of them brings a smile to my face, I cannot wait to play with all of them again! Pray for us, pray that God will not only keep us safe, but that He will be in every moment that we are there. Pray that our team will have unity throughout the trip and that we will not miss one moment to be the hands and feet of Christ!
The picture in this post is a family from Playa Chiquita. I remember meeting this very animated, proud woman at her gate on a dusty road of their little village. Without knowing one word that she was saying, I knew I liked her. She was lively, loud and had a lot to tell us! She brought Luz and I to her front porch and after a few stories about her and her family, we prayed with them.......they have been on my mind from the moment I knew I would be returning.
That same catchy little tune has returned to my mind......the beat of a drum....the heartbeat of Panama calling us back again......
"Be big God, be HUGE, let us see your glory again!"
Can you hear it??
