Manager History:

We felt the need for an office in Panama for many years, but the Lord knew the time and person to help us. Brother Alfonso who works full time for the Panama Highway department he is responsible for the highway safety of the main road from Panama City north for over 200 miles. On the weekends he visits the Indians in the high wilderness area, and he also visits the churches to make sure they have enough material for the people.
