Who are LifeBridgers?

We want you to know the people we feel so blessed to serve alongside of. We think LifeBridgers are pretty awesome and the best part is how unique each person's story is. So, we want to spend a little time each month telling you about them.
If we have said it once we have said it a thousand times, LifeBridgers are transient. We love transient people and getting to be part of their life for the season that they are in Panama, but the hard and inevitable part is the good-byes. June is a month of transition in the expatriot world, as people transition to new roles and locations.  So, this month we said "see you later" to some incredible LifeBridgers. 

We count it a blessing to be a part of people's lives whether it be for 6 weeks or 6 years. We trust God uses people's time at LifeBridge and that they are equipped as they leave and represent LifeBridge all over the world. 

There are several people from LifeBridge that are leaving this summer but above is the Caldas family. This family holds a special place in our hearts. They arrived to Panama around the same time as we did and have been on our Ministry Leadership Team. We also got to be a part of baby Owen's first 8 months of life. We will miss them and all the LifeBridgers who are moving to different cities and countries. 

A First at LifeBridge...

A few weeks ago we had our first ever Women's Retreat. It was an incredible weekend of time together in the word and spending time building upon our relationships with each other. 

Jill Petri, from Calvary Chapel Central Bucks, led us through a study through the book of Ruth. Our theme was "Walk by Faith: The Invisible Journey" and the ladies were challenged to see how God might be working in their lives despite circumstances not being how they imagined. 

International Lunch

Earlier this month we had an International Lunch. Everyone brought food from their "home" country. We had an amazing spread which included food from: Brasil, Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, Peru, Mexico, China, Italy, Spain and United States. 

These types of event provide the people of LifeBridge an opportunity to grow deeper in their relationships with each other and to invite family, friends and coworkers. 
In each newsletter we will share a tid-bit aout Panamanian life. Something unique, interesting or fun.
Cold, fish soup anyone? Ok maybe a dramatic way to describe one of the favorite foods here in Panama. Better known as Ceviche, it's made  with shrimp, sea bass, octopus and a variety of other seafood mixed with citrus juice. Found in many parts of Latin America, but made especially delicious from the fresh seafood here in Panama. 

Curious about life in Panama? What questions do you have for us? Let us know, we would love to share about topics that interest you about our country.

Praise & Prayer

We deeply appreciate your prayers for us and LifeBridge.

  • Praise for recent decisions of faith and new believers getting connected at LifeBridge. 
  • Pray for our Leadership Team, as some members are transitioning and moving. Pray that new people would come and step up into leadership roles.
  • Pray for our summer intern, Josh, who arrived June 30. Pray that his time here would be fruitful and mutually beneficial.
