Hello Beloved, grace and peace…
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year filled with all the things that really matters, prosperity in our health, spiritual life and our finances!
In Galatians 6:9; the Word of God tells us; Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. As we have the opportunity, therefore, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith, you have fulfilled that Word in deed! We were able to visit and bless SIX (6) communities, thanks to your donations.
I started this Feeding Center 18 years ago and started blessing families with food baskets and toys for the children for Christmas. At that time, I had about 100 children attending the Feeding Center. Over the years because of your generous donations, I am able to provide toys for over 400 children in the province of Colon, Buena Vista, El Congo, Arraijan, Buena Vista, SOS Orphanage and Cuba!, Yes, Cuba. The children of Monte Sinai church under Pastor Roberto Mateo received toys for the first time on Christmas Day! All of this is thanks to all of you. For the past three years we have been supporting this church sending them basic medicine for pain, headache, toothache, vitamins, etc
I can no longer do this week of evangelism by myself, and God has been blessing me that over the past ten years or more, with five or more supporters of the ministry, who travels from the US to Panama to assist with the ministry. This year we were blessed with (7) Saints from the United States. I want to thank Wanda, Rickie, Williene, Yolanda, Nikkie, Jackie, and Moises who gave not only of their finances for the day-to-day support of the Feeding Center but also invested their time coming to Panama to minister the Word to these families. As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words! I will be sending out pictures of all the communities that were blessed by you!
Thanks to all who responded to my last-minute calls and emails for help and provided the funds necessary so that we could purchase all the food baskets needed.
Cuba was not only our special highlight, but so was visiting Santo Thomas Hospital on Christmas Day with Pastors Silvia, Cynthia and myself blessing the women that gave birth on Christmas day with a gift bag containing blankets, pampers, wipers, a Bible and other items. The blankets we gave out was knitted with patience and love by members of the Cords of Love in Virginia and brought to Panama on my many trips to the US this year.
Have a blessed and fruitful New Year.
