Good morning – Thank you for your patience with us as we have internet now! We will be posting again later today, but please enjoy this update from our ministry yesterday. -Becky

Wednesday Update:
After being in the jungle for three nights, coming back to an air-conditioned place was like sleeping at a five-star hotel. With a good night’s rest and breakfast in our bellies we set out for the “Beautiful View” school. Once loaded on the bus, Walker engaged the students with encouragement from the word. All on the bus were encouraged by the truth of Jesus+Nothing=Everything. We then discussed the awe of God based in Acts 2:42-43 “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of AWE and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles.” Having passed the short bus ride, we arrived at the school focused and ready for ministry. Hundreds of children lined the walls of the schools courtyard. Upon entering the courtyard, the students began to engage the children: dancing and playing games. They then set up for the first drama presentation excited and ready to share the good news. As the first drama began, we realized truly how warm and beautiful day it was. The students drank much water as they performed. They gave all they had as they worshiped God through the chronological bible story telling. Before the school day was over the students had done the drama three times and shared with several hundred students. We were so blessed to receive lunch from the school staff. They had prepared us hamburgers and orange juice. It was delicious! We then returned to “Casa Blanca”, where students and leadership alike relaxed and enjoyed some time together. Tonight, Walker continued teaching about the awe of God and the truth in Matthew 28:18 “Jesus came up to them and spoke to them, saying “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.” What a wonderful reminder that our Lord has all authority and has control over all things!

Tomorrow is our last full day of ministry and we are looking forward to seeing what God has prepared for us on Cinco de Mayo! We look forward to sharing the many stories He has given us with you, and we are so proud of your students here with us. It has been such an incredible JOY to see their willingness to serve and encourage one another.

Gloria a Dios, siempre! (Glory to God, forever!)
Thank you for checking in with us,

Your Panama 14 Day Leadership
Walker, Becky, Triston, and Bethany
