Despite a global pandemic, La Unión Femenil Bautista Misionera Helen Stuart continues to support missions in Panama.

The organization, part of the Baptist Convention of Panama’s Woman’s Missionary Union, donated $1,180.88 to the 2020 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO). 

“This gift, and the many years of sacrificial giving to the IMB from our brothers and sisters in Panama, is yet another example of the deep appreciation of those who have heard the Gospel because of the obedience of Southern Baptists to the Great Commission,” International Mission Board President Paul Chitwood said in an interview with the Baptist Press. “All over the world there are believers and churches who love the Southern Baptist Convention for the same reason.”

The IMB and Panamanian Baptists have had a working relationship for quite some time.

“There’s never a time that the Baptist Convention of Panama is not speaking into the strategy and vice versa: ‘Where can we take the gospel next? Where is there a community with no evangelical work going on that we can have an outreach, where we can have English as a second language classes going on to get to know people and be relational and share Jesus with them one-on-one?’” said Tim Louderback, an IMB missionary.
