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.

School holidays are a period time of highly anticipated by students, because these days are exploited to rest, walk and visit relatives, among other activities. Children of Pasitos de Panay School celebrated this time, playing sports and outdoor activities, where the appreciation for nature, exercise and teamwork was emphasized. Until this period of the school year, Project Joel program has worked about 79 hours on the formation of  Values. We thank God for this wonderful opportunity and the Principal and academic staff to strengthen this work.

Getting the word out through the TV!

The state media, SerTV channel 11, visited San Antonio School in order to film part the classes that are being developed on the subject of Values. These classes are being conducted with Professor Tatiana Cornejo, in conjunction with Project Joel program, daily, to students of this school. The results have been observed in improving academic performance, conduct and discipline.

The support of mass media help us to make known, in this case at the national level, the task of training in Biblical values that are being carried out and the goals that are reached. This indicates that the continued investment of well-established education positively impacts the lives of children and youth. Ever since some years, Project Joel has been working with Professor Tatiana in the tasks of academic training in Values, giving good results, thank the Lord!

We have also had the opportunity to support the School for Parents.

A plastic snake gives us a message

One of the issues that we consider crucial in the life of a young and child is the value of Obedience. An obedience that is linked to the respect and understanding of correct decision making. This issue we have been working with students of  La Cabima School. With the support of voluntary Diana, we continue with the training that promote the message of the value of Obedience, analyzing the first disobedience of man and the origin of sin, in the book of Genesis. We use a plastic snake as a tool to dramatize the story and to exercise the rejection of everything bad, destructive and negative for our lives.

“God has blessed me greatly”

Silvia de Chang

Testimony of Professor Silvia Chang, of the University of Panama (Faculty of Humanities, Department of Anthropology)

“In addition to my work at the University of Panama, and as part of an alternative social task, I collaborated with Project Joel program during talks on values and training at Artes y Oficios Institute and at National Institute. We develop topics as “Towards Professional Life”, “Integrity” and “Bullying”. We use materials of LHM Panama, which are of great benefit and mate very well to the task of training in values, especially Christian values. As an educator, I can confirm that when we train and guide students on Christian values, I am the first beneficiary. I’ve grown a lot as a human being performing this task. I have also seen the Herculean task that has Project Joel when traveling to remote communities. That’s admirable for them. The times in which I participated, God has blessed me greatly. ”

When God’s love compels us, no limitations

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Even amid an environment of extreme poverty, joy is no impediment to gladden the hearts of children.

In the community of Paso Blanco we have witnessed it, when we participated with spouses Guevara – Phany and Sixto  – carrying the message of hope in God. Yes, we have found limitations with access to electricity, however, in the near future, we will present films with messages of encouragement, with the help of a power plant. Yes, we did find a need in food, children are participating in a dining room. Yes, we did find spiritual lack, by God’s grace we share the wonderful love and power of God through the stories contained in the Bible and the Book of Life – flipbook format for children.
“This is an unavoidable task, it is our duty to be close to the most needy, and here there are about 100 families living in extreme poverty, depending on begging; however, this may change to a better life. I am convinced that empowering children with the powerful Word of God, much of the work is already done. Children receive food free of charge, and receive devotionals and books with teachings. For this year, we will add to this community in Red Boots for Christmas Campaign”, said Porfirio Franco, Project Joel program coordinator.

Testimonio 02

Testimony of Aníbal Sanchez

I feel very important working for “the things of God.” Here in El Golfo – El Lagarto in Chepo -, many children have come to see the movie, receive toys and candies, and I also got a cute toy. I was participating in a presentation with Diana and Porfirio, using one of the puppets – I was “Cococho” the naughty puppet -. And with Cococho, I learned that I must be obedient, respect my parents and, above all, I learned that I am important for God. We sang, we present and perform devotional dramas. My grandmother took me in this event, which has been the most exciting of my life. She says I’ve changed a lot and see me as a Christian child. Back to school after these holidays and I thank God that I may be doing this work.

El Lagarto in Chepo, is a place of difficult access, a rural area hit hard by poverty and droughts caused by the strong summer.
