In June of 2011, Here I Am Orphan Ministries took our first trip to Panama to continue the work that Meeting Needs Ministry had begun there years ago. A team of 10 visited 5 orphanages in Panama City, David, and Colon. Our team found that the need was the greatest in the orphanage by the port in Colon. They were able to provide this orphanage with air condition units, a refrigerator and a washer machine as well as food, pajamas and shoes.
Many of the team members on this trip had never been on a mission trip or to an orphanage before - so this was a different experience for them. They were able to present a bible lesson, do a craft, play outdoors, and serve a hot dog lunch to all of the children. The team was able to see God's provision throughout the entire trip.
