Our Family is Growing!

Yes, we are announcing a new baby via our blog – sorry mom.

The Thompson’s have made a commitment to join our community here in Panama!

Isaac (the dad):

Jennifer (the mom):





& Valor:


Isaac and Jennifer and their five kiddos, yes FIVE, are planning to move here in November.  We are super excited!

The Thompson’s have a blog sharing their adventures as they make their way here:



Of course they will be joining our family and Terry & Liz and potentially others by November.  God is working!  Be in prayer for us as it appears God is calling more families, couples and singles to live here in community with us – praise God!

    Just to clear things up for EVERYONE who is asking. No, Shirlene is not pregnant. Although it does seem like the thing to do here in Panama… get pregnant that is, most women here are or are carrying a couple dozen kiddos. But no, I repeat, Shirlene is NOT prego. ;)

    Missed you so much especially at the church family picnic. The children and Johann did the slip and slide. Ten degrees warmer and I would have joined in. Calvin loves the farm tractor and just wanted to know what every lever does. Need you here to show him, Bobby. It is a joy to pray for your family. Looks like wonderful, solid answers (with names!) are coming your way. Bless you. Love, Janet
