January 28 – February 5, 2017
The Virginia Team will serve with the volunteers from the Fundacion Christiana Medico Social (Medical Social Christian Foundation), and will provide healthcare to Gnobe Indians in Chibirital, a small, primitive village in a remote area in the Veraguas Province. The team is a partnership of six churches and 13 people led by co-team leaders Judy Collins, Joe Teefey, and Sue Smith, DMin./SW, former missionary in Costa Rica. Other team members from RRCB include Libby Grammer, Norma Hays, Steve Larson, and Bonnie Livick.
Our church will commission the team during worship on Sunday, January 22, 2017. We hope you will commit to pray for them as they are on mission in the name of Christ providing love and care to our Panamanian neighbors.
After a five-year partnership between the Virginia Baptist and Panama Baptist Conventions concluded in 2016, the Virginia Team was asked to serve again due to the relationships developed with the Medical Social Christian Foundation and the Cooper family (founders).
