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.

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.

Fair in the Pediatric Hospital

………………………………………………………………………………..

As part of the activities carried out by the Pediatric Specialty Hospital, as part of the International Day of “Non-Violence towards Women”, LHM Panama was invited to participate in an orientation fair on the importance of preventing acts of violence against women; this is due to the increase of the cases of femicide in the statistics of our country. In our position, we distributed the booklet Couple in Crisis, which explains how the conflicts in the couple affect the relationship and the importance of seeking emotional and spiritual help before the crisis is greater or can end in a tragedy. In addition, we made a raffle of a Bible and CDs of Christmas songs, the lucky ones being Mr. Luibell Gallardo and Ms. Janett Díaz, who were very happy and grateful with their gifts.

With the presentation of our puppets: Doña Cata and compadre Chencho (the abuser), we shared the clear message that blows and hurtful words not only produce physical pain, but also pain in the soul, and that we have to go to the source of love to be able to treat others with love. We encourage people to always put into practice the “Golden Rule” that the Lord teaches us in His Word: love God above all things and your neighbor as yourself.
