Panama is located in Central America bordered by Costa Rica to the west, Colombia (in South America) to the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The capital and largest city is Panama City, whose metropolitan area is home to nearly half of the country’s 4 million people.
After several survey trips to Panama, GMI sent team members Alvaro and Mauren Barrantes to open this new field in 2019. Since then, they have been joined by GMI team members Ronnie and Jaque Mackensen along with Cecy Torres. Currently, there is one church plant in the city of David on the western side of the country, Comunidad Bíblica de la Gracia (Grace Bible Community).
