Serve children in the diverse city of Panama City, Panama. Partnering with local missionaries Dan and Jessica Cotton, Ben Lippen students will organize and run youth activities in the community center in Dos Mil, Arraijan. These activities may include a VBS-style program, playing games, doing crafts, and loving on children who visit the community center. We may also participate in work projects to assist the community center and its members. Students will visit the Miraflores Canal and get a front-row view of one of the busiest canals in the world, worship at a local church, and visit a village of native Panamanians. The team will stay at Rio Mission’s base, Casa Paraiso, where each night we will debrief and spend time together after a long day in the city.
