The "CLEFT of the ROCK"
One of the purposes of our ministry is to help improve the nutrition of the Ngäbe people -in particular the children. The children have difficulty focusing in school partly due to malnutrition. Ngäbe teachers speak about the children falling asleep and being tired. They also can be tired from walking 30-60 minutes to school one way.
We have afterschool feeding programs on the Comarca which help the children to be able to get extra teaching as well as an additional meal for the day. In some programs, God’s Word is also being taught to the children by a Pastor to provide for their spiritual as well as physical well-being.
We help to provide for the spiritual needs also. We like to have Vacation Bible School on the Comarca for children whenever possible. The children are quick to memorize Bible verses and they also walk a distance to get to Bible School.
