Panama is a small country located on the isthmus linking Central and South America. The country’s population exceeds 3 million people and like many Spanish-speaking countries, is heavily influenced by Roman Catholicism. The goal of this trip is to share the genuine love of Christ using methods that will bridge the language barriers that we face. We will be joining with LDBC member and missionary, Dr. Grace Smart, DDS, along with Manna Worldwide to provide dental and medical aid as well as general eyesight screening/eyeglass fitting to the people of David, Panama. There will also be opportunities for those not interested in medical work to spend time with the children at the orphanage and feeding centers. For those who are looking for a more hands-on mission trip and like to get their hands dirty, don’t worry! We will be working alongside our local missionary, Byron Willis, to make any necessary repairs to facilities as well. God has used the Willis family to establish several incredible ministries in Panama where they have served for over 40 years.
Local transportation is provided by the Willis’ ministry and accommodations are at a local upscale hotel. Cost of the trip includes all ministry supplies, lodging, and transportation.Register for the Panama Mission Trip
