May 9, 2018 (Wednesday Night) | Panama Mission Team
RRCB’s long-term partnership with the Fundación Cristiana Médico Social (Medical-Social Christian Foundation) in Panama continues to provide medical and dental care to indigenous populations, and this year, the team expanded to include a construction team as well! Come hear from our team and missionary partner Sue Smith about this wonderful trip that was taken February 3-11, 2018!
From February 3-11, 2018, River Road Church, Baptist continued our mission to Panama to serve with the Fundación Cristiana Médico Social (Medical Social Christian Foundation) to provide medical and dental clinics to the Embera Indians and others in need along the Panama Canal region in Gamboa and Chepo. This year we also started a construction mission. The project was working with a Kuna indigenous congregation that has a feeding program for local kids, serving lunch to around 90 kids from the community on Sundays. The program operates on the back side of the church, under a partial roof, with no walls. We helped expand the area where the kids are fed.
The team is partnered with three other churches and 19 people led by co-team leaders Judy Collins, Joe Teefey, and CBF Missionary Sue Smith. Other team members from RRCB included: Libby Grammer, Norma Hays, John Heisler, Bonnie Livick, Emily Sumner, Bill Rusher, Anne Rusher, and Geoff Sundberg.
