As announced by the church this past week, the Panama Mission will be getting a new Mission President on July 1, 2016. The new mission president is going to be William Current, who will serve with his wife, Susan. We had a Skype conversation with them and can tell that they will do a wonderful job building up the kingdom here in Panama. Pres. Current was just released as Stake President of the Coral Gables Florida Stake. He served a Spanish-speaking mission to Canada. His wife served a mission in Mexico, so she already knows Spanish. We are already praying for them as they prepare for this important assignment in the best mission in the world! I will put a photo of them on the blog as soon as one appears in the Church News.
We welcomed 16 new missionaries to the mission this past week and said goodbye to 3 great missionaries.
Departing missionaries that we will miss so much! Thank you so much for your service here. We wish you all the best.
