News Time!

Hello, we hope that you enjoyed your 4th of July in the United States. We spent the holiday painting the church that we are partnered with, La Comunidad. After we spent the entire day painting the church, they blessed us with a gift of pizza. Then, we began our talent show for the night and had a human firework show to celebrate. Its quite different celebrating the independence of the United States in a different country.

Today, we started back on drama ministry in an area of Panama that is extremely stricken by poverty. We were blessed to do five different dramas in this neighborhood, and we had so many people surrender their lives to the Lord. It was so amazing, and the great thing is we were able to reach many more people than the ones we saw today.

While we were performing the drama on a soccer field, a man came up and then began to video us with a huge camera! After it was over he came over to our leaders and stated that he was working for a local Panamanian news station, and they wanted to do a piece about us for the news that night. They asked to interview one of our leaders, and he began to share the gospel on the news channel. Our God just continues to provide us new avenues to share His light to the lost world.

We ask that you continue to pray that God would use us to further His kingdom and let us see a closer glimpse of Him every day. Thank you so much for your prayers and comments. We need them to to help encourage us and help us finish this trip.

Your CCs, 

Dustin and Meagann

    Seek ye the kingdom of God first and all these things will be added unto you. Winning souls is not your first pursuit – God is. Winning souls is your second pursuit and that happens (is added unto you) as you seek Him first. Press into Him and He will renew your strength. Revel in His beauty for it is there you find passion and energy and a deeper knowledge of God. Thank you for sharing your adventures; I am continually awestruck at all He does through you. Your obedience is inspiring. Ally, I love you and I am WAY past missing you – it’s an all new missing you level now! Can’t wait to see you and hear all your stories! Love love love you!! (I’m filling my love tank cause I think yours may be full – lol!)
    Love Mom
