Construction Update -
Latin America Resource & Training Center

Fotos at the end of the article

We’ve been back in Panama since July, following nine months of itineration, visiting supporting churches and individuals. You may recall seeing our video that showed us walking through the property where the Latin America Resource and Training Center (LARTC) facilities would be built (2014-09-LARTC-Vision). We challenged God’s people to help us build a vehicle bridge, replacing the wood bridge that we crossed on the video.

And together we did it! It’s not a bridge; instead we used twin five-foot culverts that allow full flow of the creek during heavy tropical rains. This change helped us to preserve the natural beauty of the area and we saved 20% in construction costs! The road is now extended another 100 yards past the creek to where the LARTC buildings will be located.

We are now preparing for the first two construction teams that will be with us in February and March. But there is so much to do before they arrive. Please pray with us that God would provide the necessary funds to complete four important preliminary steps:

  • Grading and leveling to prepare for the foundations

  • Purchase and installation of transformer and cable

  • Road, drainage and septic work

  • Foundation, columns and second-story floor of the first buidling phase.

All of this must be completed before the first team arrives in mid-February. If you are able to help, please send your offerings to:

LARTC Project 14295
1445 Boonville Ave.
Springfield, MO 65802

Also, please pray that God would send additional teams in the coming months to continue construction on the building. Our goal is to be able to move our offices to the new facilities by December next year!

Please visit the website for additional information about the project, including building phases and specifications.

Once again, we want to say thank you for partnering with us. Together we are raising up Christian leaders in Panama and throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America!
