Spring, Growth and Preparation
I'm writing from Panamá, in a little place in Costa Verde. It's been over a year and it feels so good to be back! I'm here for a few more days and then I will return to the States to make final preparations to return to the field. I'm praying that things go smoothly and that I can return at the beginning of September. God is doing incredible things both in the States and across Panamá. Check out below some of the ministry highlights from March and April.
I had the privilege of attending a wonderful ladies retreat.
I was able to to lead one of the study sessions and also present the ministry.
I was also able to see the small group that I often mention. We had not seen each other in person in over a year! Such a sweet time of fellowship and encouragement.
The picture below is of a dear friend, Adelina. She is a missions-minded lady with whom I've gone on many mission trips. It was so good to reconnect and to emjoy some awesome Panamanian food!
It was refreshing to attend church at Iglesia Bautista de Costa Verde. This is a growing church plant that is reaching a developing area and is currently the only church in the vacinity.

I had an unexpected encounter with my high school Spanish teacher a few weeks back! It had been 10 years since I last saw her. It was great to say "Hello" and share how much she spurred on my love for languages!
