Interesting Facts About Panama

Panama flagBackground: Explored and settled by the Spanish in the 16th century, Panama broke with Spain in 1821 and joined a union of Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela – named the Republic of Gran Colombia. When the latter dissolved in 1830, Panama remained part of Colombia. With US backing, Panama seceded from Colombia in 1903 and promptly signed a treaty with the US allowing for the construction of a canal and US sovereignty over a strip of land on either side of the structure (the Panama Canal Zone). The Panama Canal was built by the US Army Corps of Engineers between 1904 and 1914. In 1977, an agreement was signed for the complete transfer of the Canal from the US to Panama by the end of the century. Certain portions of the Zone and increasing responsibility over the Canal were turned over in the subsequent decades. With US help, dictator Manuel NORIEGA was deposed in 1989. The entire Panama Canal, the area supporting the Canal, and remaining US military bases were transferred to Panama by the end of 1999. An ambitious expansion project to more than double the Canal’s capacity – by allowing for more Canal transits and larger ships – was carried out between 2007 and 2016.

    Hello Maria, my name is Rhonda Burnett and I have been ministering in Panama since 1998. I was a volunteer for many years with the International Christian Embassy Feast Of Tabernacles in Jerusalem and then the Lord began sending me to Panama to plant the ministry of the ICEJ there. We did the first Taste of The Feast of Tabernacles last year at the Balboa theater and are planning a 70 year anniversary celebration of Israels birth as a nation on July 14th this year.My friend , Rebecca Cayford, is the Aglow prayer coordinator here in Melbourne ,Florida and she gave me your contact information. I am writing to ask if your Aglow group in Panama would be willing to give prayer support to this event? We are encountering increased opposition in moving forward with this event and I know that prayer support is absolutely critical when trying to establish something for the Lord. My local contact is Marco Zevallos, who is the ICEJ representative for Panama . His email if you would like to contact him directly. Thank you and hope to see you at the event in July as we celebrate Israels 70th birthday!
