And he said unto them, The harvest indeed is plenteous, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest.
Luke 10:2  ASV

Prayers from, and for Panama!


It is my sincere desire that this report finds you in good health, physically as well as spiritually and enjoying peace that only comes from God our Father during these trying times.

It seems that our current situation is going from bad to worse in Panama as well as in the United States and indeed, throughout the entire world. We have now been on total lockdown for over three months. I understand that you all are suffering through the same situation with this virus.

Businesses have remained closed and church services remain illegal here in Panama. We have been able to use the social media networks we had set up for organizing the Torti church to stay in contact with most of the members.

The rainy season began and Teddy, Yoise and their son had to build a more permanent structure in which to shelter from the virus up in the jungle. The blue tarp and tent were completely inadequate due to the severity of the wind and rains. We advanced Teddy two month's salary and provided his family with fuel, transportation and other items. With help from family members already sheltering in the area, they were able to build a small cabin and plant food for the coming months.

Those hardest hit in our area are day laborers who earned 20 dollars per day doing odd jobs or working as farm hands. These people use their daily pay to buy food and supplies for their families. To most Americans, living day to day is unimaginable. Asking God to provide us with our daily bread is well, something we don't want to have to do daily. 

There are a large number of refugees from Colombia, Nicaragua, and Venezuela living in Torti as well. Many do not have work permits and are completely destitute. Several of these refugees are in the Learn English Bible Classes I teach each week. I have been helping them buying food out of my salary, as much as I can afford.

On two occasions, brother Creston Waddle and Christians from the Shiner Church in Kentucky have provided funds to purchase and distribute food to the Christians in Torti. We have so far been able to obtain permits from the government to purchase and distribute these food items.

We continue to do all that is within our ability to serve God's children and others around us who are in need.

As always, I and those who labor with me, covet your prayers, and we also offer up prayers for all of you. Please continue to support this work and to encourage others to join in as well.

Wishing you grace and peace, I remain your servant in Christ,
                   Kim L Rowell
