Thankful for U.S. Partners

Yesterday we had the joy of meeting the Bledsoe family (Chris, Teri, Hannah and Dan) from Stockbridge, GA.  They are members of Eagles Landing Baptist Church (one of our US partner churches).  We had the joy of sharing with them some of what God is doing here in Panama.  We shared with them that God is working here and amazing us with what He's doing!  This is a family that is seeking to know how God would have them be involved in the work here in Panama and possibly other places in the world.  It is so encouraging to us to have people like the Bledsoe family who are willing to come to Panama, pray for Panama and who are truly seeking God in their lives.

Another of our U.S. Partner churches will be arriving tonight - First Baptist Church of Thomasville, GA.  This is the home church of fellow UP Team members - Tim and Tina Louderback.  This church has been so supportive and has sent several teams during the past year.  This week, the team will be working in an area of the city called Don Bosco doing a community event, backyard Bible clubs, prayer walking and mapping.  They will also be assisting us with an outreach event with our Selah group on Monday night.  Pray that God will be glorified in all that we do during this upcoming week and that lives will be changed.

We also greatly appreciate our other partners - Olive Springs Baptist Church in Marietta, GA; Temple Baptist Church in White House, TN; Catawba Springs Baptist Church in Brewton, AL; Noonday Baptist Association in Marietta, GA;  Burnt Hickory Baptist Church in Powder Springs, GA; and Central Baptist Association in Oklahoma City, OK - who partner with us through prayer, sending mission teams or through financial assistance with specific ministry projects.

We are thankful for the churches, associations and individuals who are involved in our ministry here in Panama.  It takes everyone working together, doing what God leads each of us to do to reach Panama and the World for Him!
