Church Planting Institute of Panama

The Church Planting Institute of Panama (CPI) is going real well.  This coming Sunday, 9 students are graduating from the Institute.  These students worked through the CPI for 6 months of training.  Out of this group 6 new church are being started in Panama.  Please pray for the graduates as they are working to start these new churches.
The Church Planting Institute of Panama has started the second class this past Thursday night.  We have 23 new students.  I believe that God is doing something amazing in Panama.  Pray for the new students as they are starting this course.  Pray for at least 15 new churches to be started through this class.
I will start teaching at the Panama Baptist Seminary in April.  I will be teaching the 6 month course in 2 semesters. All of the students and professors are required to take the classes.  Again, God is doing something amazing in Panama.
CPI also has been asked to teach the course to 2 different churches.  One of the churches is in the Northern part of Panama City and the other is with an indigenous group of pastors.  Pray for the planning of these two new classes.
In May, the CPI will be teaming up with PAAM,  the mission sending agency of Panama, to train Panamanean missionaries to start churches.  This seminar will be for one week for 8 hours a day.  God is doing something amazing in the WORLD.

Operation Christmas Child

Many people that follow our blog make and give shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child.  Here are some pictures of giving the boxes here in Panama.  I think Charlotte had just as much fun opening the boxes as the kids.

Medical Fair

Saturday we were at a medical fair in Santa Fe.  We were working with one of the church planters from the Church Planting Institute of Panama, Carlos.  50 people received Christ and over 250 people were seen by the doctors.
