The photo and video were taken two months ago. It shows the program being listened to via radio in Panama, in a state without roads, difficult to access, totally isolated, in the county of Clarim Ngoble, in the district of Ngabe-Bugle. The indigenous community that lives in that location, far from the urban centers affected by the pandemic, is part of another evangelical church, pastored by Pastor Milciado, but has received the assistance of Panama’s MCC for some years, having participated, in previous years, in presential seminars in the church of Panama, in the city of Aguadulce, according to information from pastors Vicente Castilho, Nairom Pimentel and worker Pedro Murtha Lacerda. Following broadcasts from the Program Announcing the Eternal Gospel, pastors in Panama have received calls on their cell phones from many visitors to receive prayer and clarification of the Word of God.

Outside the indigenous village, the program has also had an impact. “A sister wrote to me asking for one of the lessons and praises, as her friend had listened to the radio and was delighted. She wanted the praises to hear at her home, ”said worker Pedro Murtha Lacerda.

The family of a pastor from another evangelical denomination, assisted by pastor Vicente of the ICM of Panama, said that they were feeling abandoned by the church to which they belonged. They started listening to the MCC programs on the radio and were delighted, testifying that the churches stopped preaching the return of Jesus, and that is the message that must be announced.

It is important to note that the program’s premiere is worldwide on YouTube, on the MCC channel, always at 8pm EST (9pm Brazil time), on Fridays, providing access to all regions of the world that have an internet signal.

However, in order to evangelize and provide easier access to its members abroad, MCC continues to seek radio stations and television channels to show the Program Announcing the Eternal Gospel, in order to reach more lives that are thirty for the revelation of the Word of God.
