Equipping The Saints Workshop, Río Rita-Colón

02Equipando a Los Santos

LHM Panama dictated the seminar “Lutheran Identity” in the Jesús Divino Salvador Lutheran Church, located in Río Rita. We had a group of participants, who were very motivated and participative during the development of the issues, clarifying doubts they had about the current situation of the Lutheran church and changes adopted by some churches that do not belong to the same synod.

03Equipando a Los Santos

The speakers: Licdo Edilberto Méndez, director of LHM Panama and Pastor Patricio Mora of the El Redentor Lutheran Church located in Balboa, clarified all their concerns and presented in a clear and simple way the importance of knowing the guidelines of the church and thus be able to make it known.

WORKSHOPS THAT CREATE COEXISTENCE

Autoestima 03

Friendship, companionship and a great desire to live are reflected in the group of pediatric nephrology patients of the Hospital of Pediatric Specialties, with whom we meet every month to develop personal and spiritual growth workshops. These children are all life warriors as they attend their dialysis treatment three times a week, travelling from distant places of the country and try to carry out their daily activities such as going to school and doing their homework.

Autoestima 01

Despite the fatigue or pain that their medical treatments produce, children enjoy these workshops; we can see their smiles, the sharing and take off their own thing to give it to their friends. Just as Joseph did with his friend Alejandro, who gave him his friendship bracelet. These meetings are generating a beautiful coexistence and an affective sharing between the parents and their children. At this time, they talk, carry out their crafts as a team, laugh and reinforce the parental bond and sharing among children.

Autoestima 04

The subject was about the self-esteem and the feeling of personal value that comes given to being made by God in his image and likeness; Which makes us valuable to Him and gives us a sense of personal value to ourselves. As a complementary part that strengthens the development of skills, the children together with their parents made earrings and beautiful bracelets that looked proud at the end of the workshop. When she asked little Ania what she liked most about herself, she said, “What I like best about me is life.” This makes me reflect on how we face our personal situations and how we let the Word of God work in our daily lives. Let us not tire of doing good and continue showing love in every work and action that we do and thus we can testify that the love of God is in our life.

Discipline as a key to success in life

Valor de la Isciplina 02

Puppet Grandpa reinforce the importance of values in life.

As part of the follow-up to the work that has been carried out in the Jesús en los Pobres School, Project Timoteo developed the theme “Discipline” as one of the most important values that must be formed and reinforced in children and young people. With the support of volunteer Mauricio Miranda of Dios es Grande Lutheran Church, the puppets Conoco and Grandpa explained the importance of discipline in life and how God in His Word talks about it and the negative results of living in disorder.

Valor de la Isciplina 01

Children listening the message.

Many of the students at this school are attending Dios es Grande Lutheran Church, so we believe that this follow-up work is quite complete, they also attended on Sundays by the team of leaders who carry out Bible School for Children, thus reinforcing values and relationships with them and their parents.

Workshop “I Have a Friend”

Hepot03

Pastor Patricio Mora talks about love and friendship parents should express at their homes with their families.

Continuing with the workshops, with the group of mothers and children patients of nephrology of the Hospital of Pediatric Specialties, we met with them to develop the workshop “I Have a Friend”. This workshop was attended by Pastor Patricio Mora of El Redentor Lutheran Church, who talked about the theme of love and friendship as key ingredients in interpersonal relationships, especially in the family environment; as well as the love that offers us our Father God, who offers us His friendship and fills our emptiness and solitude.

We had the participation of two parents who were accompanying their children to the dialysis therapy, who enthusiastically were involved in the workshop and developed their friendship card “I offer you my heart and my hands”. Through a note written on this card, parents told their children those qualities that they like about them and how much they love them.

Hepot02

Parents and children show the crafts made during this session.

This was a time when parents and children interacted and shared together expressing their ideas and developing their crafts. Although initially these workshops were scheduled to be held with parents, we have found with the pleasant surprise that some of the children coincide in time and can share even a moment with their parents, before entering the therapy or when leaving the same; which allows us to have them together by participating in the workshops and teachings.

We are very happy and excited about this new door that God has opened to us to testify of his love and to perform works of mercy.

………………………………………………………………………

In a very special way, we started the Christmas season at the Jesús en los Pobres School. Encouraging artistic skills in children, we shared the Christmas Journey booklet, reiterating the reason why we celebrate Christmas. Throughout each page of this book, some children discovered the story of the birth of the Son of God, while others recalled this message they had already learned. In the end, we conclude that in this season, as in every day of our lives, we must remember that happiness is not found in toys, gifts or material, but in the peace and hope that God offers us through His Word.

For example, in the case of cans, which was the material we use to perform manual labor; to oxidise release a fine dust that can be sucked affect our respiratory system. Similarly, drinking water or breathing these pollutants affect our health and we produce many of the diseases that can sometimes be fatal.

The teachings given by Professor Rodríguez caught the attention of everyone, who showed great interest by asking questions about how they can dispose these wastes commonly call it “trash.” Similarly, we continue to strengthen the importance of taking care of nature that has been given to us by God in order to have a healthy place to live.

With welcoming remarks from Dr. Neil, deputy director of the Outpatient Pediatric area, LHM Panama ministry center began the presentation at this medical center. Walking the aisles of different waiting rooms at the sound of the chords of guitars and tambourine, children and parents sang carols, applauding with the palms and the little kids dancing to the melody, feeling the thrill of Christmas arrival. We stopped in the hematology room where the children shared with our program of Christmas songs, while receiving treatment. By sharing about Jesus to these people who are going through a difficult situation, we bring the message that in Christmas we receive the greatest gift of all: our Savior. We encourage them to trust that they are not alone. For people who do not know the Word of God, we shared, through carols and “A Different Path” devotional that they can move forward with Christ.

Dia de la Madre 01

A special program with songs and poems alluding to mothers at the time, was presented by the Ministry of LHM / CPTLN in the Hemodialysis Unit of San Miguelito. This tribute organized by the hospital administration was held on the eve of Mother’s Day. It was a special time to highlight the love and dedication of moms like the “Virtuous Woman” in Proverbs, they are always attentive to his family and the needs of your home. A special blessing asking God, for all mothers every day of his life and especially this group of women who, in their day to day, plus care for her family must cope with their disease.
