The Trip

This trip will offer you a great view of life in Central America.  You will work in the very modern city of Panama city and also minister to the people of the Kuna tribe.  Located in the rain forest,  this people group is the second shortest group of people in the world (second only to the Pygmies). They have remained segregated from the world, despite living in the most modern country in Central America.   It’s a great mix of work as well.  We will go do either construction or sports ministry in Panama City and then take the long trip into the mountains to minister to indigenous people where we will do photography, children’s, and sports ministry.   This is a great trip for groups of people with mixed interest. There is something for everyone to do.
