Back in Panama!
By Rod and Sherry Boyd

Monthly support partnersWe’re back in Panama! What a great feeling to see the tall buildings as we flew in to Panama City. Then to see the smiles and hugs of our team at our office conveyed the clear message… Welcome home!

Budget Update. We’re so grateful to all who came through in the month of June to help us meet our monthly commitment budget. We have 95 churches and 34 individuals that have made monthly commitments. Please pray with us that our generous support team will remain faithful so that we can ministry in an equally generous way. Pray especially for those churches that are not able to give according to their monthly commitment. We could really use some additional support to make up this difference. Please visit our Support page.

Preparing for the Bolivia 2016 Educators SummitImportant Travel. We haven’t been able to unpack our bags quite yet! We spent just 10 days in Panama in July. Most of our time was spent on three important trips:

Santa Cruz, Bolivia. We met with the Superintendent of Bolivia and other key leaders to begin forming the local committee of the 2016 Educators Summit that is scheduled for Aug. 22-25, 2016. We visiting three hotels with convention facilities and one of the larger churches in the city. We are planning for a group of 400-500 leaders, teachers and pastors from the South American countries. Please pray with us as we are negotiating contracts at this time. This is the southern version of the Educators Summits; the northern version will be held April 18-21, 2016 here in Panama City, Panama!

Final preparation for the 2015 Educators Summit in the Dominican RepublicSanto Domingo, Dominican Republic. We met with the national leaders and expanding local committee that is working on details for the upcoming 2015 Educators Summit that will be held Sept. 14-17. There was a high level of excitement as we talked about the theme – Lift of Your Eyes – the same message we’ve been sharing in the churches in the US the last several months. We are expecting that between 250 and 300 leaders, teachers and pastors will attend the Summit, probably 80% or more from the Dominican Republic. Please pray with us that the hard work of the local committee will pay off!

2015 Little Davey Project - GuatemalaGuatemala City, Guatemala. We were privileged to work with another Little Davey Project team to build and distribute computers for LACC schools. We'll have a full report on the 2015 Little Davey Project trip to Guatemala next month.

House Hunting. Please join us in prayer as we are looking for the house, duplex or apartment. Rents have risen dramatically since the last time we looked for a place more than 10 years ago! Still, we know that the Lord has the perfect one for us.

We are so grateful to be back in Panama and back to work. Thank you for standing with us in prayer and financial support.
