MONTGOMERY, Ala (BNC) — Larry Brady, Director of Panama Missions, is pictured with Yati Chami and Neilis Saenz, girls from Panama. Dressed in their native dress, both girls spoke at the annual Panama Missions ‘Friends of Panama’ Dinner, Saturday evening in Montgomery. They told of their family and life in Panama and about life in the United States.
Brady gave an encouraging report on the work in Panama and encouraged attendees to help by purchasing a water filter for a family or helping with “Operation Santa Claus.”
He also stressed the importance of education, and told of Yati and Neilis’ plans to return to Panama after receiving their education where they will be better equipped to help their people.

As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. I knew no one who was desiring to be a preacher but each night I knelt by my bed and prayed, “Lord, if I am capable of being a preacher’s wife I would like to marry a preacher. If not, just let me marry a Christian.” God answered that prayer for me. Our local preacher, Jerry Humphries, preached in two gospel meetings that summer and invited a young man from Alabama Christian College (now Faulkner University) to preach in his absence. He brought his girlfriend with him so that took him out of the running. But when I learned they were coming back in a week or so, I asked if they didn’t have some fine young man they could bring down and let me meet. The girl thought for a minute, snapped her fingers and said, “Old Doug.” Old Doug and I have been married 54 years and have two children and two grandchildren. All our children are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
