Your Old Laptop can be a Missionary!

Our laptops are our lifeline here in the mission field! We use them to make phone calls to the U.S., to communicate worldwide via email, to locate resources here to help in our work in Panama, to keep up with the news back home, to prepare Bible lessons, to create documentation that keeps the LST program going at the university, to manage and edit the photos that make our work known to you, and to make our reports about our work. We each (me, Lisa & Michael) had our own laptop - and they were all in use constantly - until recently...

Lisa's has CRASHED. Michael's was STOLEN! Now three of us are sharing mine, which means that we're each reduced to a third of our former computing capacity.

Perhaps you have an old laptop you are not using. Let it become a missionary! We don't need the latest and greatest. All we need is a properly functioning, Windows-based laptop with at least two USB ports. Please email us at if you can help.

OR, we would be thrilled with one of those tiny, new "Netbooks". The Acer "Aspire One" and the HP "Mini 2133" are both going for about $300 in the U.S.

A New Congregation!

Two house churches combine to form the new Metropolitan Church of Christ in the city. If you're visiting Panama, and your Spanish isn't so hot, you'll appreciate the warm, bilingual reception you'll receive!

The new school year begins at UDELAS with a record number of Let's Start Talking folks!

Read all about these two items in the March newsletter. Choose from MSWord (.doc) format or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.
