We have to tell you the story of two Kuna ladies, Yeli and Norma with whom we were just re-connected while in Panama. Many years ago when we had to leave the Kuna village where we had been living because of safety issues, we resettled in a community outside of Panama City where there was a large Kuna population. Joyce began a Bible study and literacy classes with 4 Kuna ladies from that neighborhood. The group quickly outgrew the facility and was moved to a large Kuna church where it touched hundreds of ladies. Well, Yeli and Norma were in that original group of ladies! They heard the Gospel, trusted Christ, learned to read in Kuna and fell in love with His Word!
We’ve lost track of them over the years. But recently while in Panama, we visited a new Kuna church in that area where we used to live. And yes, we ran into Yeli and Norma! They were so excited to tell us how that little group has continued to grow and that now there are Kuna men, women and children with their own dear Kuna pastor meeting together. Just goes to show that you never know what God is going to do as you are faithful with a few that He brings your way!
