They recently went to Panama to help build a dormitory for missionaries in the Dariet Jungle. The other man, Jonas. is from Ohio. He joined the three local men in Houston. Area church members travel to Panama By RoseAnn Wengler On July 3, three members of Living Faith Fellowship Church, (LFFC) Su- perior, left for the Darien Jungle of Panama to assist with the missionary work of Dennis and Jeannie Cook. The Cooks attended Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Okla., with Patsy Busey, LFFC pastor. More than 20 years ago they established their mission in Panama. Their "farm" consists of a large, fenced area they cut out of the dense jungle. The farm contains their home, pavilion and shop area. Since their arrival they have founded many churches. Now they train the pastors of those churches and other pastors. The three men were Tim Crowl, Superior, owner of Crowl Tree Ser- vice; Bob Pauley, Smith Center, cattle raQeher and farmer; and Edwin Wiest, Tulsa, Okla., 1997 graduate of Guide Rock High School, 2001 graduate of Oral Roberts University, student at Rhema BibleTrainingCenter and ORU chemistry lab instructor.. This is Crowl's third trip to Panama. He went seven years ago to help build a radio station. The radio station now reaches more than 50 miles and em- ploys a licensed Panamanian at $1.62 per hour from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Crowl's second trip involved the building of a dormitory to house the pastors who come to be trained by the Cooks. The trio had much to do to prepare for this mission trip. Each had to be immunized. They had to have a Hepa- titis A shot and buy malaria pills. They had to obtain jungle survival necessi- ties including bottled water and flash- lights. They also each had to raise more than $1,000 to cover their ex- penses. They left Kansas City by airplane for Houston and from there to Panama City. 'q'he city was crowded and busy," Vestey Meals Sunday, Aug. ing, mashed vegetables, cake.

The first night they stayed in a motel and the first full day was devoted to running errands with the Cooks. Crowl said, "The difference be- tween Panama City and cities in the United States. is the pace, people and transportation." Then he jokingly added, "The driving requirements in Panama are: be crazy and have a horn." Public transportation in Panama City consists of thousands of old school buses painted in a variety of colors and designs. Crowl brought back a picture of the police officers in Panama City. They dress, as if for war, in camouflage with masks and machine guns. The Cooks have an apartment in the city which is their base for communi- cation with the world outside of the jungle. In the apartment they have a telephone and computer. They make a trip to the city once or twice a week for supplies. The apartment is also used to house guests. From the city, it is a four-hour drive to the Cooks' missionary complex. Two hours of this drive are on a paved road, then the road changes to a winding dirt trail. Along this section of road, there were tall trees on both sides of the road and many potholes. Crowl said the first time he visited the Crooks the drive took 7 hours because only one-fourth of the road was paved. The Cooks have two vehicles, a Ford 3/4 ton 4x4 ex- tended cab pickup and a Toyota 4- Runner. They reported the drive to and from the city vibrates the fenders off of their vehicles. There were three police check points on the route. At each point, they were asked to open the doors of the vehicle so the police could see who and what was in the vehicle. "They could have asked for our passports, but they didn't. They just looked at us. They knew we weren't Panamanians," said Pauley. The temperatures during the day were near 85 degrees, but the humidity was 95 percent. They many encoun- tered bats and lizards. Pauley observed, "It was very green there." They slept in the Cooks' house which now has electricity 24 hours a day. When they first established their outpost they had electricity from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. and frequently three out of seven days it didn't run. They still lack an adequate water supply. They collect rainwater run- ning from the roof of their house for Mappy 4o//; n l o ers ar ff , and 00)ad/ ,.00luyus/11 Letters To use in an outdoor shower during the rainy season. Other times during the year, the Cooks must haul water 20 miles. Food in the jungle and the city: was simple. Meals featured basics like chicken, rice and a vegetable without spices. "They eat a lot of rice and plantanos," said Crowl. The Cooks rely on the "city for bottled drinking water and groceries. In the off season they can purchase bananas in Santa Fe which is 15 miles away. In season, the Cooks harvest their own coconuts, mangos and bananas. The LFFC delegation stayed two weeks in the jungle working on the dormitory. When they arrived, the dor- mitory roof was unstable. They re- moved and replaced the roof. They also installed plumbing. Wiest went to the village of Las Monos (which means The Monkeys) with the Cooks to help with a children's Sunday School class. The people in the Darien Jungle they encountered were the Choco Indians. They learn Spanish in school, but they also have their own native dialect. Wiest found the chil- dren to be shy. "If you talked to them, they were happy," said Wiest. All three men went to a Wednesday evening church service. There Pauley and Wiest noted the people have a tranquillity. They are not in arush todo anything. Wiest said that night was his most memorable because, "It was neat to see the people have the same Lord and worship the same Jesus we do. I knew they did, but it was just neat to see." Pauley described the Indians' wor- ship service. Praise lasted more than half an hour, but they were told it usually lasts an hour. They played bon- gos, a tambourine and PVC pipe with a wire brush, The preaching lasted 30 to 40 minutes. Crowl said, "The people are hard working The Cooks have one full- time employee who works all day cut- ting the grass with a machete. He re- ceives $6 per day and that is $1 more than the common laborer makes in the jungle." The men returned to Nebraska on July 14. Obedience is in a way the mother of all virtues.
