Welcome, and thank you for visiting Panama Jack’s Web Page. I hope that my website highlights the wide variety of work, fellowship and service opportunities available with Latin American Missions (LAM). Please feel free to read more about our work on this site, or come and go with us on one of our campaigns. We would love to have you as a part of the LAM family.
Jesus came to seek and save the lost Luke 19:10. Our mission is simple “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” It is truly a life changing experience for all who go with us to Latin America.
We have been training native men since September 14, 1965 and have sent them out to PREACH the Gospel
