On Sunday we went to the Gamboa Union Church with Tony and Lisa Amstutz and family, and after we visited the Miraflores Locks to see how the Panama Canal Operates.
On Monday we walked around Casco Viejo, one of Panama's old cities, and did some shopping.
Tuesday was a visit to the Summit Zoo (the monkeys are my fav).
On Wednesday we went on the awesome boat cruise where we got to feed monkeys that jumped in our boat and spend the afternoon hanging out in hammocks on this floating dock where we ate lunch.
Thursday we toured the ruins of Panama Viejo.
And of course we spent lots of time by the pool and out on the town!
Saturday we got up SUPER early and took our respective flights back to our homes, and I was reunited with my housemates in Honduras one again!
Today we celebrate the reason we are alive, the conquering of our Savior over the grave. How thankful I am for what He has done for me, and that because of His sacrifice, I can look forward to death because I know it means I will spend an eternity with Him. A week in Panama may have been nice, but forever in heaven? Nothing could ever compare.
