We are the Del Collo Family, Nathan and Rebekah, Tyler, Luke, Kellan, Lilla, Jude, and Avia, and we have been in Panama since October 2012. God led us to Panama to work primarily with the children of this beautiful country. We believe that true change can only come through faith in Christ and a growing knowledge of Him. It is our hope to see the children trained and discipled in the Word of Christ and to grow to lead the next generation in obedience to God’s Word. In addition to our hearts for reaching the children, God has given us a heart to minister to several of the indigenous tribes throughout the country of Panama. In 2017 our family moved from Chiriqui, in the northwestern region of Panama, to Panama City and we joined with Sport X Change soon after. Since our move, we have been able to serve at the first children’s home for children with special needs in Panama, as well as ministering through sports and athletic teams, amongst the indigenous tribes, and in local schools. Nathan has also been able to use his experience in electrical work to assist with building and development projects. Through God’s grace and the support of so many of you, we are excited to continue our ministry here and we look forward to continuing to pursue the opportunities God provides us here in Panama.
