SUMMER SCHOOL IN LOMA COVA

 

In conjunction with Dios es Grande Lutheran Church and the Juvenile Police units, LHM Panama participated in the Summer School in the community of Loma Cova. With topics from the book Garden of Biblical Stories, the teachers developed various stories, including "Joseph and his tunic." The children, regardless of the health restrictions caused by Covid 19, did not stop having a pleasant time of learning and fun, songs and prayer. The Clan de Memo’s puppets were part of these activities, in which we also distributed hygiene packs, and books donated by the One Hope Foundation.

SELF-ESTEEM WORKSHOP

LHM Panama developedt the How to have a healthy Self-esteem workshop, beginning with words of prayer from Pastor Alejandro López, from the Emanuel Lutheran Church, based on Psalm 121 that tells us that the Lord is our protector and takes care of us in every circumstance of our lives. During the workshop we talked about factors that affect this perception of value towards ourselves. This more loving and compassionate perspective allows us to see ourselves through the lens of Jesus as valuable beings, respecting and accepting ourselves, which allows us to have healthy self-esteem.

 

CHISPITA THE CLOWN TELLS A STORY

 

With the valuable support of Jazmín Martínez, member and teacher at Dios es Grande Lutheran Church, LHM Panama held several comprehensive reading sessions. Chispita the Clown, performed by Jazmín, developed sessions based on stories from the book Garden of Biblical Stories, participating in virtual programs. 

COMMUNITY

WE ONLY SHOULD WORSHIP GOD

Via Zoom and Youtube, a group of children and their parents participated in the presentation of the Eliah’s story, taken from the book Garden of Biblical Stories. These families sang, played and analyzed the content of the story and its main message "We should only worship God." Drawings and tasks complemented the video, sent to their teachers. María Cabir and Jennifer Estrada carried out these sessions, as part of the summer activities.

THE HEALING EFFECT OF HUGS

 

"The Healing Effect of Hugs", an article published in the LHM Panama blog, shares interesting information about the physiological, emotional and spiritual effects that a hug can cause, such as the reduction of the stress levels, improvement in the immune system and the strengthening of the affective bond with the people we love. Through these readings, we offer messages that encourage and exhort people to practice well-being habits and lifestyles for the body and soul.

COMFORTING AUDIO MESSAGES

 

Referring to the month of Love and Friendship, LHM Panama shared biblical verses from the book of 1 Corinthians 13 that tells us about love and shows us that love allows us to be patient, overcome difficult circumstances, forgive and love others, even when we feel it is difficult to do so. This recorded message was distributed to those who are part of our WhatsApp list, with the aim of encouraging them, taking care of them and continuing to show them that God's love and friendship fill the soul and give meaning to life.

DEPRESSION CAMPAIGN

Through a special campaign focused on Depression, LHM Panama shared encouragement through recorded messages. We offered the eBook edited by Vivenciar.net as a support and a guidance resource. These messages, words of hope and encouragement, were shared with parents, besides of Ministry of Education and Vivenciar.net contact details.

ENCOURAGEMENT AND HOPE

 

LHM Panama carried out a campaign on the International Day of Childhood Cancer. Through WhatsApp, Dr. Gisell Zuares addressed parents with children facing Cancer, contacted through the Department of Social Work of the National Police. The booklet “When cancer knocks on the door” complemented these advices and messages of encouragement. With this support, we want to bring that voice of encouragement that the Word of God offers us, giving them strength in these times of family struggle.

SECURE INTERNET FACING THE NEW NORMALITY

 

LHM Panama attended the Secure Internet Facing the New Normality webinar, developed by the Panamanian Institute of Law and New Technologies, and with the specialist of the National Secretariat of Childhood, Adolescence and Family. Important topics were touched on, such as the danger to which we are exposed, especially children and young people. 1 Corinthians 10:23 tells us, "One is free to do whatever he wants." It is true, but not everything agrees. Yes, one is free to do what he wants, but not everything builds the community. "

VIDEO ABOUT COVID 19 EXPLAINED FOR CHILDREN

With the aim of sharing quality content, within the framework of the Month of Love and Friendship, LHM Panama prepared a series of messages to share daily through digital media. The messages touched topics related to love and friendship, such as communication, management of relationships, conflicts, and problems with anger, among others, keeping the focus on the Word of God as a sure source of hope, advice, hope and strength. Our sources are content from Sentido Latino, Vivenciar.net and LHM.

Moving Story

Bringing Hope in the Midst of Need

Through devotionals, LHM Panama encourages to people who are going through difficult times. For Mrs. Thelma the reflection “Pointing to Jesus” came just when she was feeling sad and alone. The message of this devotional made her feel more encouraged and grateful. She thinks that God knows what she needs and that He acts for her good, even when there are circumstances that are very hard to bear. It is wonderful to see how God uses these devotionals, which take place in faraway places, to bring them directly to the heart and life of a grieving woman, encouraging her and giving her the comfort she so longed for.
