HACHA REPORT - JUNE 16-24, 2018
God bless you. It is good for us to be able to give this report.
Last year around this time of the year a team from Alabama came to join forces with the ministry in Panama in order to go to Hacha, a small village that is about two hours hiking from where the road stops up on the mountain chain of Chiriqui and Bocas del Toro. They went with us trusting in the information given to them, that is one step of faith, camped and ate with the nationals; there was a small number of believers that through years have been getting together to hear the Word in the midst of a village to be MamaTata.
By the end of that week a piece of land was donated, that is another miracle. Through out 2017 another piece of land was donated which was almost in the middle of the village, now that is a big miracle, for the first piece of land was way too far. The news was given to the USA church and they got to raise the funds to consider the possibility of building the house of prayer in Hacha!!! It was muddy and cloudy but the work was done. Only one day the sun came out as to give the time to try hard to finish, Aleluya!
This year another youth team got together and made the trip to Hacha with MGPanama with the purpose of sharing God’s love through the work with kids, the women and men but mainly to start building the so long awaited house of prayer. The weather did not help much but was generous enough to allow the team (USA, nationals and Latins) to finish 90% of the building, the rest would be finished by the mother church that has been coming to Hacha for several years now and the group that follows Jesus in Hacha. The USA team took turns on the outreach and on the building. God is good.
The result was awesome, 7 POF from all the visits made and the last day 2 took the brave decision of getting baptized in the river that passes through the village, the water was very cold but that did not stop them. Loudly gave testimony of what is to follow Jesus. The church that helped us to build the church is committed to send a pastor to look after this baby church that has been established now.
Being able to come back from the mountains with all the team in one piece is always a blessing. We had 14 from USA, 13 of them got sick but God gave them strength to keep going and work hard to share Jesus. On the last day we were able to hike back out, no one was left behind, Praise the Lord!!!!
Your prayers were of great value and we deeply appreciate them. Thanks once again for your faithfulness to our King by praying, giving and as time allows, going.
