Panama Mission Trip 2024


March 17–24, 2024


Panama City, Panama


See details below


With its vibrant people and unique culture, Panama attracts many tourists from around the world. But few who visit ever see the desperate need that now exists in the many indigent communities just outside its popular vacation destinations. 

Poverty and unemployment have increased significantly over the past several years due to the pandemic, with 10 percent of the population now suffering extreme poverty. To make matters worse, the healthcare system is antiquated, including a lack of medicines, long waiting lists, poor infrastructure, and rampant corruption. As such, these communities do not have access to quality medical care.

However, even in the midst of this crisis, the precious people in these communities have an earnest desire to learn more about Christ. That’s why Amazing Facts and Granite Bay Hilltop SDA Church are planning a much-needed mission trip in March 2024—to serve as Christ would have us serve, including construction projects, health and dental clinics, revival, and outreach training.


Several Sabbath-keeping churches in the region do not have a place to meet for regular worship. Home churches are common, but this limits the number of people who can attend worship together. We will work on two construction projects to help build larger centers of fellowship and worship. 

The first construction site will be at Princesa Mia. The congregation there is currently meeting under a metal roof overhang. We will be building them a new church facility.

The second site will be at Loma de Guadalupe. They have a church building started; we will help them complete the work.


In partnership with the Panamanian Institute of Special Needs (IPHE), we will be hosting a health clinic to provide free professional medical and dental care to the local community. The school facility has 14 classrooms that will be utilized for this much-needed ministry. 

We will also be presenting a Bible program for children of the school, which has 800 students with special needs. The program will be tailored especially to these children, teaching them about Jesus while also engaging them in many outdoor activities.


Sabbath-keeping pastors in Panama are fervent workers for the Lord, and their desire to grow in the work is great, but economic limitations prevent them from receiving the evangelism training they need to be effective shepherds. So Pastor Doug Batchelor and a team from the Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism (AFCOE) will meet with 400 to 500 local pastors and other church leaders for outreach training; we’ll also equip them with helpful resources to help them in the local gospel work.


At the end of the trip, Sabbath, March 23, Pastor Doug will host a revival series at the Panama Convention Center. We are expecting 5,000 people to join us.

Important Notice: Dear Friends, we are truly humbled and grateful for the incredible response we've received for our upcoming 2024, Panama Mission Trip. Due to an overwhelming surge in applications, we find ourselves in the position of needing to close the registration phase earlier than anticipated. This level of enthusiasm demonstrates the depth of commitment within our congregation to spread the three angel’s messages to all the world and we are excited to embark on this meaningful journey together. As much as we wish we could accommodate everyone, our current hotel availability presents a limitation that necessitates this decision at this time. However, please note that we are actively exploring options to potentially reopen registration at a later time, if in the event that some participants choose to withdraw from the mission trip. Your dedication and understanding during this process are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your ongoing support of Amazing Facts International and the Granite Bay Hilltop Seventh-Day Adventist church as we strive to make this mission trip a remarkable and impactful experience for all involved.
