Jakob and Amber updates

As I was working on the soccer entry I realized I should post a few pictures of the kids. I was blessed to have the whole family with me for these first 2 soccer camps while the kids were still on their Christmas break. It’s really amazing to watch them interact and use their Spanish to…

Soccer Camps 2011

We are so excited to walk through this new door that God has opened for us in the form of Soccer Camps. As many of you know mid December through the end of February marks our “Summer” here in Panama. That means, for most of the kids, there is NOTHING TO DO! Well, it is…

Flood hits Panama

For the first time since the U.S. invasion of Panama, the Panama canal was  shut down.  This time however, it was for a different reason.  On the days leading up to December 7th we were drenched with a non-stop rain that caused many rivers in our country to overflow their banks.  Some have said it…

Youth Camp 2010

This year we had almost 1000 students come out for “Desafio Extremo” or Extreme Challenge. We saw God move in some awesome ways and challenge the students to give up some of themselves and to go all in for God.  Above is a photo of our opening evening service.  We held it outside and the…

Oh Santiago (part 2)

The following weekend we were invited back to Santiago. This time we had youth ministry training on Friday and Saturday night. Here is the group shot. Believe with us that God is going to use these servants to touch and transform lives of many students in the Santiago area! It seems no matter where we…

Summer 2010

Well it seemed like a whirlwind, but the Summer of ’10 has come and gone! During those 3 months we found ourselves very busy. We were out almost every weekend with ministry and a few times Terry was gone throughout the week as well. God has opened some amazing doors for us and we are…

2010 MEC conference

  On April 21-23, Panama hosted the ‘Misiones en Conjunto’ or MEC conference.  The conference is held for all of the Spanish speaking world and delegates from Argentina to Mexico and even from Spain converged on Panama City.  The days were full of workshops, seminars, devotionals (which were really more like powerful sermons) and evening…

Kuna Yala

On March 18-21, 2010  I had the honor to travel to 3 islands off of the Caribbean side of Panama.  A team of 8 of us left the city at 5 AM for a 2 hour ride over the mountains of Panamá to the city of Cartí.  From there it was a 3 hour WET…

Soccer and swimming

Just a little update on what the kids are currently up to.  Two weeks ago Jakob’s soccer season started for his school.  Right now he has practice 2 days a weeks and is is slowly getting into shape.  I (Terry) am serving as the assistant coach when my schedule permits.  Both Amber and Jakob started…
