The Work of the Lord in the Republic of Panama

Looking back over the past two years, no doubt you have used similar words as we have to describe the experiences of Covid. Words such as a trial, challenge, test, deep water, dark valley, fear, uncertainty, why, etc. It's not what we call these experiences but what we learn from them and the spiritual development they produce in us.

Tirana, Albania

It was lovely to see our hall at full capacity for the Christmas outreach! Many non-believers were in attendance, including a few for the first time. The Sunday School children sang carols and recited Bible verses they had memorized, followed by a Gospel message presenting the Lord Jesus Christ, the Greatest Gift of All at Christmas. We trust and pray that the Holy Spirit touched all present. It was an encouragement to the saints and serious thought to the sinners of their standing before a Holy and righteous God.

Lutsk, Ukraine "Before the Russian Invasion"

I am sure that the parents of the boy born blind and the boy himself had asked many a question WHY? Why us, why me? They had no doubt tried to reason things out in their minds! At birth, they experienced anxiety depression, possibly blaming themselves or each other! This event was life-changing they were already poor, and how would they cope! Others judged them thinking that the blindness was the result of sin!

Lviv, UKRAINE "Before the Invasion"

Ukraine is the 2nd largest country geographically in Europe but is not a member of the European Union. With a population of 44 million, steeped in "religious idolatry," and landlocked by seven other countries except in the south where the Black Sea forms a beautiful coastline. Since 1991 they became independent from the USSR and left communism behind as the "iron curtain" fell. Since 2014 and the invasion of the mighty Russians in the east of the country, their armies have been entrenched 60 kilometers inside the Ukrainian border

Tucupita, Delta Amacuro, VENEZUELA

The Lord, in His infinite mercy, gave me the privilege of being able to return with my three boys, Matthew, Mark, and Philip, to our field of labor in Tucupita, Estado Delta Amacuro, on the 28th of March 2021, after an absence of 1 year and five months. Although feeling keenly the absence of my dear wife, who was taken home on the 11th of January 2021, after a year battling with Leukaemia, we have come to appreciate that our Lord's ways are past finding out, and we submit to His Sovereign design.

Santa Maria, RS BRAZIL

I arrived back in Santa Maria during the second week of November. We felt bad the 20 months when international travel was restricted and the door to Brazil closed. Each weekend, I recorded two messages during these months, one in the Gospel and the other in ministry. I sent them by What's app, initially to believers in the area we usually labor, but with time these were passed on to contacts right throughout Brazil.

San Salvador, El SALVADOR

The past few years have been very different for the world ever since Covid-19 started affecting the lives of individuals, families, nations, and the assemblies of God's people. You hear a lot of talk of how this has affected countries' economies and governments' efforts to get theirs back on track. Unfortunately, in some cases, the assemblies of God's people have also suffered a setback. As we look forward to 2022, our focus is to rebuild.

Prahova, ROMANIA

In summary, in the 14th year of this work, tents were pitched in 87 places (in 17 Counties), with over 14,000 children attending their meetings, and in the evening, over 13,000 people (saved and unsaved) came to tent meetings. Most encouraging is that many people have been saved by Divine grace.

In regards to an update on our work, restrictions have intermittently halted our usual three-times-weekly gatherings in our home with children and teens for a meal, singing and bible lesson. We were able to have small groups of five in at times for bible study and hosted children for cookies and verse learning outside on our deck in the warmer weather.

Cooroy, QLD AUSTRALIA

On the Australian Coat of Arms, there are two animals, a kangaroo and an Emu and the symbolism is not without its significance in the fact that neither of these animals can travel backward. Yet, in this land of apparent success and advancement, a degeneration of alarming speed is taking place before our eyes. This demise, not only within society but in Christendom, ought not to take the Christian by surprise, with numerous NT passages instructive to identify conditions that will prevail in the closing days of this dispensation.

Nazareth, Assembly ISRAEL

The Emmaus Arabic correspondence course work began in a very simple way in 1975. George Khalil, a young Palestinian believer, found a few old Arabic Emmaus courses on a shelf in the Nazareth Assembly in Israel and sent them to contacts he had made during a local outreach
