The Saga Continues

Panama is such a beautiful place. When I landed it was dark and we had to travel for about an hour to get to the place we were staying, so it was hard to tell what it really looked like. We arrived at about one in the morning and had to be up, eaten breakfast, had team devotions, and on a bus by nine. How many can say jet lag! Most of our team had arrived at a decent time so they were up and ready, Richard and me not so much. Our first day of ministry was at an elementary school. We ministered to the smaller kids(k through 2nd) first and then to the older ones in the school. The children were so grateful for us being there and so attentive. There were a large amount of parents and school teachers in attendance. We then went to a high school and ministered to them.

After each performance the drama would be explained to the people and then they were given an alter call. Names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses were taken so that they could be followed up by the churches in the area. That day one hundred and seventy-one people gave their lives to the Lord. It is always such an amazing thing to be a part of. All those lives changed.

When we returned it was time for dinner and then we had our evening services. We learned that over a thousand people were saved in that one day. How cool is that! Praise God! We were so thrilled. The teens were so turned on and couldn't wait for the next day. It was not a late night, everyone was more than willing to call it a day. It was so satisfying.

How about you have you eve had the chance to tell someone about Jesus? Would you know what to say or how to lead them in prayer? It is a lot easier when you can pray in English and not have to use a translator.
God bless you all.
