God’s Glory

Today we stood in awe as God moved in front of us. We started out this morning at La Comunidad Bible Church. An incredible time of worship with our Panamanian  brothers and sisters in Christ. Walker was also able to tell us all about his trip up Mount Kilimanjaro with the cross. It is amazing what God can do you when you keep your eyes on the cross. We spent a long time reconnecting with members of La Comunidad we had gotten close to last year as we ate our PB & J and Lemon, Mayo, or Chicken chips!

In Panama, today is African Culture Day. Next, we joined a group of Africans for an afternoon celebration at Centro Misionero Jehova. Many of them were dressed in traditional African clothing and were a joy to watch worship. The highlight of the day for many of us was them singing their welcome song to us…several of us were left in tears at their gratitude and graciousness. We presented the drama story to them and then they invited us to stay for lunch (including fried plantains! yum!!). Once again, we were in awe of the generosity and their humility.  It was an amazing time to engage with their culture.

Our final destination for today was to IglesiaVida Nueva. This is a neighborhood/village of Kuna people. It was a packed house and there are no words to describe how the Spirit moved as we worshiped God and then presented the Gospel through our drama. As Pastor Luciano asked for those who wanted to accept Christ to come forward the response was amazing! Many came for prayer and 8 Kuna (MEN and women) accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. Walker said this was equivalent to 3000 children coming forward in a VBS! The Kuna are a closed people, and yet God softened their hearts and changed many, many lives!
