MINISTRY IN ACTION
UNITED WORSHIP IN THE MISSION LOS ANDES 2
In addition to a united worship, missionary pastors Arthur Rickman were installed for the congregation of El Redentor Lutheran Church and Raphael Voight in the Mission of the Andes 2, who have been a great support to the Lutheran Hour Ministry and with whom we collaborate with materials and special activities in the evangelistic task.
TEXAS VOLUNTEER GROUP IN BALBOA
A group of volunteers from Texas visited the El Redentor Lutheran Church, located in Balboa, to inspect and determine the next works to be carried out on the property. CPTLN/LHM in Panama collaborated with the work group and coordinated part of the logistics as co-workers and church servants.
PANAMA LUTHERAN FORUM
LHM ministry center in Panama, as a founding member of the PANAMA LUTHERAN FORUM, was the venue for this FORUM with delegates from LCMS, partner churches and districts, as well as local churches, who present projects to be considered and approved for the nxtw year. We thank all partners for their participation in this effort to work in unity and harmony for the future of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Panama.
YOUTH AND KIDS
A MORNING WITH FULL VALUES
We present to the new generation of students of the Jesus in the Poor School, the film Red Boots for Christmas, as the beginning of the Christmas season. It was a morning of artistic activities and games that culminated in the presentation of the video. The powerful message of Values that this story contains does not lose its validity and is always liked by children, especially this generation that watch it for the first time.
ANALYZING AND LOOKING FOR VALUES IN THE TALE OF THE RED BOOTS
After watching the film Red Boots for Christmas, the fourth and second grade students of the Jesús en los Pobres School discover and analyze the values that the film presents. They color and exchange ideas, within the context of playful activities. "Jesus is God's great undeserved gift to us" is the phrase that was highlighted over and over again. Due to repairs to the school's roof structure, classes are being held in the chapel of Dios es Grande Lutheran Church.
CELEBRATING THE NATIONAL HOLIDAYS
With parents, students, teachers and volunteers, we testified to our faith, during November, Month of the Nation. Project Joel takes posters, banners and images of Christian values out of schools onto the streets. It is a great opportunity to declare to the general public our Christianity. Pastor Rafael Voigt, from Mission Los Andes #2, participated with us in this event.
ACCOMPANYING OLDER ADULTS
we spent time accompanying the elderly at Hogar Juan Pablo. We developed activities that stimulate attention and thought processes, such as the alphabet soup of Values and emotions. There are many stories of those who reside in this home, happy memories, sad things, difficulties in the family, dreams and longing to return to their place of origin. The desire to be heard, accompanied, and supported is one of their greatest needs, in addition to material needs. We feel great joy to be able to give them a word of encouragement, support and share hope and a little of our time with them. This is how we convey the message that they are important, that God loves them and that despite all the difficulties they experience, He is also there to care for them.
THE SCHOOL IN THE CHURCH
Due to damage to the roof of the Jesús en los Pobres School, located in the Loma Coba area, three groups of students attend Dios es Grande Lutheran Church to continue their school schedule. Project Joel has made the commitment to work intensely on the development of the My Life Project strategy and to strengthen reading comprehension. To achieve this goal, we meet weekly with these groups, play games, and reinforce the Values training.
DONATION TO HEMODIALYSIS UNIT
LHM Panama ministry center delivered a donation of clothing, accessories and other items for personal use to be distributed at the bazaar that will take place in December in this hospital unit. The donation was received by the head of the social work department, Raquel Camargo.

- MOVING STORY -
“In my beginnings at the IMMOP School, I developed my social work with Project Joel. There I got my first Bible and, thank God, my first steps in the Christian faith. Distributing toys, Christian literature, teaching values and sharing as a team with those who strive to get ahead marked my life for the better. Today I'm in college and something I always have in mind is the Christmas Tour that I volunteer for. I thank God for having received such a good education in Values and now I want to put my knowledge into practice”, shares Elvis.
