2016 Panama Mission Team

PANAMA MISSIONS TEAM Summer 2016 

Soar-Panama-Application-2016  download here.  Due date: Feb 7, 2015 

We are planning to send a team from FGCC to our Partners in Panama- the Zuluaga and Foster families this July.  The dates are July 1-20 approx.  If you have interest in the team, but have some questions, please talk to Tori (torijbraun@hotmail.com). We value good orientation, team building and debrief , as well as a reasonable amount of time in country on assignment (travel takes time!) so this is why it is almost 3 weeks long.  Travel takes time!

We  love intergenerational teams so if you are 16 or older you can apply! If you are 14-16 you can apply with a parent. Young adults, parents, teens, seniors… if God is inviting you to go, please consider applying!

The team will spend time with various Wounaan churches within Panama– possibly in the urban areas, or out in the Coastal or River communities of the Darien.  Relational ministry is the focus and having our hosts and Wounaan leaders guide us in what that looks like is our desire.  We may be involved in ministry to kids, adults, youth through prayer, worship, a volleyball tournament, crafts, testimonies, teaching, cooking together, or building projects, all while doing life together.  Be ready to be flexible, love people, and go as a learner !
