Part of the SOMD class and some of our staff just got back from outreach in Panama! They had been serving the people by investing into orphans, distributing Bibles, doing work projects, and spending time in prayer and worship. A few weeks ago, they had the opportunity to visit the Ngobe (pronounced ‘Nobe’) tribe and partner with Homes of Hope to build a house for a lady in need. During their time there, they were able to get to know the Ngobe people and share the love of Jesus with them. Check out Emily’s story:
Our team went to a community in the mountains called Boca de Monte (“Mouth of the Mountain”). The first day we were there a woman asked us to pray for her daughter who had been sick. Her baby was very fussy and you could tell she didn’t feel well. When we returned the next day I asked the woman how her child was doing and her response was, “she is better now, thanks to God!” You could see the change in the baby as well. She was smiling and even let us hold her. I believe this woman saw the healing power of God in her life that day.
All of our outreach teams returned this week from all over the world! It’s been good getting to hear their stories of what God has done in their hearts and in the lives of the people they touched while overseas.
