More Pictures from Trip to Guabo

Visit to Guabo 2010

This past weekend Derek Tucker, 5 Panamanians and I went to a remote village about 12 hours away from Panama City. We went to check on 2 students from the Church Planting Institute of Panama. The two guys have been living in the village for 1 month and are starting a church.
This trip was way out of my comfort zone. There was no electricity and no running water. We left last Friday and returned on Monday. I am so glad that God has called me to Urban work. Here are some pictures to show the fun.

October 2010

The Urban Panama Team is seeing many wonderful things in Panama. Two students from the Church Planting Institute of Panama went to a remote village to start a church. Pray for these two young men as they are serving the Lord in such a great way. Derek Tucker and I will be visiting them in a few weeks.

The UP Team has been mapping and doing block parties in a new community called Santa Fe. There will be a new small group started this month in this area that has no churches.

I had the opportunity to preach at Calvary Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Panama and The Baptist Seminary of Panama last month. God moved in all of the services with several people making commitments to Jesus.

The UP Team got together and ate chicken that would have had Truett Cathy leaving Chick-fil-A and working for Charlotte.

Please continue to pray for the us and the UP Team has we start churches in Panama City. 1.2 million people are in the city with only 22 Baptist Churches to reach them.
