Yaviza Camp

Donations to this camp help train indigenous church leaders in Panama to be beacons of light in the dark jungles of Darien and beyond.

This project supports the Panamanian Mennonite Brethren Conference camp in Yaviza, providing leadership development, discipleship, and Bible training for indigenous Wounaan and Embera leaders who are committed to outreach both within and beyond their communities.

Founded by national leader Obdulio Isarama and a team of church elders, this camp hosts discipleship training programs, a local children’s ministry, frequent seminars and large church events. Besides the men and women’s dormitories that accommodate national and international trainees, there are two homes on this property, providing a ministry base for Multiply’s Einer and Girlesa Zuluaga and a guest home for other missionary families.

During the last few years there has been significant need for repairs and renovations at Yaviza Camp and the associated Casa de Sembrador (Sower’s House), a residence building set up in Panama City by the Wounaan church to provide housing for students, missionaries and short-term mission teams, as well as functioning as a revenue property to resource these ministries. Damage at the camp has been primarily due to flooding and drainage issues, and theft has been an issue at Casa de Sembrador due to inadequate security fencing for the perimeter. There is an immediate need for funding as follows:

Yaviza Renovations
  • $5880 USD kitchen upgrade - Yaviza Camp
  • $3530 USD flooring - Yaviza Camp
  • $8235 USD ceiling and walls of bedrooms - Yaviza Camp
  • $4700 USD repairs and renovations for two bathrooms - Yaviza Camp
  • $33,000 USD concrete security fencing for perimeter - Casa de Sembrador

All work is being done through qualified volunteers - indigenous tradesmen from among the Wounaan and Emebera people groups attending the local church. Thank you for supporting this ministry!
