Life is good here in Panama. We feel so blessed in so many ways.
Derek’s mom visited us, she went home Wednesday. We enjoyed getting to visit with her, and showing her a little bit of Panama.
Another thing that is going on with us is that this weekend (June 11-13) we are attending a mission conference. This conference will be led by Panamanians from here in Panama City, but we’ll be traveling to a city about an hour from here to work with a church there. We’re going along to get to know some of the Panamanians better, and to help with a few of the logistics if we can. We look forward to getting to know some of these great folks some more. We have been getting to know the city better and getting to know a lot of different people here in Panama. We look forward to developing these relationships and seeing God work in our lives and the lives of those around us.
A quick question and thought for you: have you taken a chance lately to stop and just think about all that God has done for you? He has truly blessed each one of us in more ways then we can ever imagine or voice. We are so grateful for each of these blessings! Sometimes it can be hard to see these blessing, but the good things God has done and continues to do are there. Hopefully we can see them and be thankful for them every day.
some great verses: I Thessalonians 5:16-18
“Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances for this is Christ will for you in Christ Jesus”
Regardless of how things are going in our lives, we can have hope beyond the circumstances. Our true joy should come from Christ and what he has done for us.
We are truly blessed and have so many things to give thanks for. We appreciate all your prayers and continuing to keep up with us. Let us know how you’re doing. If you have any prayer requests, we’d like to pray for you, or if you want to let us know what all is going on with you, that’d be great too. We hope each of you are doing great.
