MINISTRY IN ACTION
LHM Panama SUPPORTS THE PREPARATION OF PROJECTS OF THE EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH OF PANAMA (IELPA)
The Lutheran Hour Ministries, in Panama, have made their experience and knowledge in the development and administration of projects available to the IELPA. During the last 5 years, faced the requirement for the IELPA to systematically express its needs, LHM has constantly collaborated in the presentation of projects that reflect the needs of the congregations, to the partners of the IELPA and the Lutheran FORUM of Panama.
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.
WEBINAR: CREATING THE IDENTITY AND ONLINE PRESENCE
LHM Panama participate in the webinar Creating the Identity and Online Presence of Your Brand, about branding and online promotion. Wix, the platform that provides the hosting and domain for the LHM Panama website, organized this training. The presentation of the content, talked about topics related to brand identity and optimization of Internet diffusion. These types of opportunities allow us to progressively improve the work that we develop in digital media, strengthening the presence of the ministry.
WORKSHOP STRATEGIES FOR MANAGING STRESS
Mayra Fernández, coordinator of the Psychopedagogical Cabinet # 10, invited LHM Panama to develop the workshop Strategies for Managing Stress to teachers from the Federico Zúñiga Feliú Educational Center, located in the Penonomé area. It began by thanking God for allowing this time of care and learning and asking for his direction so that it would be of benefit to all. In this workshop, we share some techniques to manage stress and guidelines to apply physical, emotional and spiritual self-care.
WORKSHOP HOW TO DEVELOP SOCIAL SKILLS IN ADOLESCENTS
We held the workshop How to Develop Social Skills in Adolescents, in which we had the support of the speaker José Ceballos, who shared important guidelines to develop and strengthen verbal and non-verbal communication skills, which are very necessary and they help us to relate in a healthier way with others. We had a group of forty people participants.
Kenesley Impressions, a provider of printed materials for our ministry, donated 50 units of the “Jesus Loves Me” activity booklet to reinforce the work of proclaiming the Gospel to children. We thank God for this valuable donation, which will be part of the materials to share at home of children and adolescents, in a future visit.
TASKS THAT FORM IN VALUES
Through the tasks that teachers realize as a follow-up to the readings, the El Clan de Memo’s videos, and the workshops and seminars, the children carry out crafts that they share with other people. These crafts remind their parents about the Biblical Values learned in each class.
TEENS FROM THE RÍO ABAJO COMMUNITY GRADUATE
A group of 16 young people who had been developing social work and volunteer tasks in the formation of Values, have restarted activities in this time of pandemic, keeping all the biosecurity measures. These young people have developed, in conjunction with Project Joel, “The Project of Life” which consists of workshops and practical tasks that they carry out on Saturdays for two hours. Twelve (12) classes culminate with the construction of the "Tree of Life".
Idabelis Sánchez, from the city of David - in the province of Chiriquí-, was one of the winners of the drawing contest with the theme "Esther, the princess of God." This little girl has not only participated as a reader of the Biblical History Garden book, but she is also a promoter of the comprehensive reading strategy and long-distance biblical tasks. She has carried out this task at her school. Idabelis has been a donor of tours in the East Chiriqui region, and together with her mother, she has participated in the “Red Boots” tours. “I want to thank LHM Panama for inviting, through teacher Águeda, my little girl to get involved in these tasks that have been a great blessing, especially in these days of darkness where we got sick and lost in the family. Puppet readings, studies, prayers and children's songs are part of our family”, says Solangel, Idabelis's mother.
