El Progreso Church
& Child Development Center

El Progreso, Chorrera, Panama


Work & Witness Team Updates

From 2017 - 2020, Fairview Village sent five teams to work on the reconstruction and expansion of a Child Development Center to increase their capacity and improve the conditions.  

  • El Progreso is a church outside of Panama City, serving the community for 30 years.
  • They have planted five churches from this location, and wanted to expand part of their facility into a two story addition, to increase their ministry to the community.
  • During these trips the teams added a second floor, and remodeled the classrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms on the first floor.   
  • A basic medical clinic with pharmacy was held for several days at different locations.  
  • Vacation Bible School was delivered during most of the trips, both on-site and remotely.   
  • Backpacks, school supplies, Spanish language Bibles and "Shoes That Grow" were distributed by the teams during their visits.
  • Great friendships were made through the multiple trips team members had made over these five trips.
