Goodbye campers!

Posted Jan 10, 2017

Hola !! 
I’m still in awe of the way the Lord broke down barriers this week. Despite cultural differences and all the hilarious mis translations of language, we have built relationships in Panama that will truly have an impact on our hearts forever. 
The last day of camp was very bittersweet!! The day started out with breakfast and bible study but as it lingered towards the end of camp, the sadness set in. Tears began to flood every campers’ and counselors’ face as we said our goodbyes. 

One of the sweetest moments that I (Morgan) will cherish forever is when one of the Panamanian leaders was praying over all of us and in the midst of the prayer the campers ran towards their counselor and squeezed us tight. As I was standing there I could hear the weeping and feel the sadness in our hearts in that moment. It was such a cool reminder that love is enough, God is enough. 

I still can’t grasp the relationships that were made simply because we shared so few words with one another but love and laughter filled this camp from the moment we woke up until our heads hit the pillow at night. We are so thankful for a great week of camp and for the Lord working in powerful ways! 

We can’t wait to wake up tomorrow and explore more of Panama!!!! 

Los vemos pronto amigos y familia!

  1. God bless you all!
    Praying for a safe trip!??
    I love you Brandy❤️ I can not wait to hear all about your trip!

  2. I love hearing all of the incredible things that God has been doing within this last week in the hearts of PC staff and the Panamanian people! What an incredible experience y’all got to take part in and watch Gods hand actively at work within the camp in each heart there. Enjoy these last hours/day that you have. You will treasure these memories and experiences for ever. I know that the 2 years I went will forever impact my life. And I know it will for each of you as well. My challenge to each of you is to leave from Panama a changed person. A changed person for the Kingdom of God, bearing bountiful fruits (just like the ones on the hill by the “slab”). Continue to pursue people back at school/work with the same effort you used with a language barrier. God is good. God is faithful. And God is capable of all things. I pray for safe travels back to the U.S.
    Love you guys!!
