Lifeline's ministry in Panama initially began in 2012 by ministering to the Guaymi (pronounced "why me") Indians through food distribution. Today, the ministry includes 10 house churches with more than 400 people.

Why Panama?

Here are a few reasons to share Christ's love:

    • Panama has the fewest Christians in Central America; there are almost no independent Christian churches.  You have the opportunity to be on the forefront of a new movement to plant churches.
    • Thousands and thousands of the Guaymi need to know the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Most of them idolize a woman who founded the Mama Tata religion.  The Guaymi also need a lot of social, medical and educational assistance.
    • Panama City is a key international city for commerce and is very diverse; there are Venezuelans, Colombians, Nicaraguans, Cubans, Dominicans, Salvadorans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, Ecuadorians, Brazilians, Chileans, Europeans, Chinese, Africans and others.  In the future, we have the opportunity to plant multicultural churches.

You & your church can further the ministry in Panama!

Through your donations, you continue to make a difference in the mountains of Panama to the Guaymi people.  There are 10 houses churches with 400+ people and more than 300 people have been baptized,  yet there are many more in the Guaymi tribe who need to know about the saving grace of Jesus Christ.  You and your church can personally impact the growth of the ministry in Panama:

Go and see first-hand
Church/mission leaders can visit the ministry on a small, personalized trip with Lifeline's leaders to experience the ministry first-hand and learn how their church can personally share Jesus' love with the people.

Personally connect with the children and families
Your church can build a relationship with the families in the house churches through our Roots ministry.  By sponsoring children within the church, sending mission teams, and encouraging the house church leaders, you're building cross-cultural relationships that show God's love, while also stretching and growing the faith of those in your own church.

Grow vibrant & dynamic leaders
Lifeline's Bible Institutes in El Salvador and Honduras are producing dynamic pastors and leaders who are multiplying house churches throughout those regions.  Your church can be part of a new Bible Institute to exponentially grow the church throughout Panama!



Pray for the church: pastors/leaders must walk great distances to share the Gospel and church members also walk long distances to worship together in this rural, mountainous area.

Pray for Jose, Lifeline's Mission Director in El Salvador & Guatemala, as he travels to Panama frequently to meet with, encourage, and study with the pastors and leaders
