Marcos Palma lives in Panama with his wife and children. He says he met Christ when he was 12 years old in a Bible school, and since then he always felt a strong desire to serve God. Over the years he has been involved in many areas of service. The subject of evangelism has always called his attention.
Marcos was invited to participate in the process of raising awareness about the need for church planting. Through his experience, he felt a special call not only to evangelize but to plant a church. Marcos began to receive the church planter training provided by Multiplication Network Ministries (MNM).
In the training, Marcos learned to survey the area where he wanted to plant a church. Through this, he learned that Santa Cruz Final Pedregal has great economic and spiritual need. The people seemed to be without hope—they were just trying to survive.
For Marcos, it was a new experience to see a better way to create relationships and reach the people of this community through these relationships. He has seen the difference in his ministry as he has moved forward.
Something that moves Marcos is how the work of God can move forward with a broader vision than his own and can arrive and settle in places that are forgotten by the great churches and cities and from there a new community of believers can be born.
“I have had a good response from the community and we have seen families and lives transformed and changed by the power of God," says Marcos.
