Panama Day Six

Posted by Team Leader on

 Hi! This is Bella Passieu. It was day six today in Panama. We first went to a community center for the kids in the inner-city who are not as privileged as we are. We played all kinds of games with them and just loved on them. Most or all of the kids that go there only have one parent, who...

Panama Day Five

Posted by Team Leader on

Today we went to a school to perform and share the gospel. Afterwards, I was talking to the students—or at least trying to—and they kept asking for a picture with me. Honestly, there are probably about 80 different pictures of me with random Panamanian kids, yet I couldn’t...

Panama Day 4

Today, I had the opportunity to perform a drama to share the gospel in a youth detention facility. I was very scared at first; I was pulled aside and patted down by the security and I got very nervous. When everyone got through security, we began changing, assembling the sets, and doing makeup...

Only Three Days in and I Never Want to Come Home Today was a fun filled day. The schools we were supposed to go to were on strike, so we had lots of free time at the camp. We got to zipline, make friendship bracelets, and play different games. Personally, the zipline was my absolute favorite...

Day Nine - Vision

Posted by Team Leader on

AIC Zion's church services, as we experienced last Sunday, are as beautiful, relevant, and scriptural as they are wild, unpredictable, and improvised.  However, "Cultural Sunday" at Zion doubled the overall insanity of church today--making for a perfect send-off for our team. The...

Day Eight - Sofa on a Motorcycle

Posted by Team Leader on

As we spent our final day with AIC Zion's students, we gave many hugs, took plenty of pictures, and generally enjoyed one last day at the school. We participated in a goodbye ceremony that was packed with performances from the students, including songs, dances, dramas, a Kenya Scout...

Day Seven - Out of the Dust

Reverend Wambua is a "starter" who is blessed with the ability to launch long-lasting ministries.  Therefore, AIC Zion is not his only project.  Today we had the opportunity to bring a group of thirty Zion students to visit the recently established Lion of Judah School, located in the...

Day Six - Needs

Posted by Team Leader on

Today was a whirlwind; many of us were so engrossed in our tasks that we hardly saw one another until the end of the day. Ron, Ben, and Cami spent an hour speaking with the high school teachers about their needs and challenges.  Boniface, a science teacher, described the difficulty of...
