Panamanians get a taste of ‘Sweet Home Alabama’

Four Panamanian youths — Juan Carlos Pimentel, Edward Calderon, Amelexia Santos and Rosemary Sanchez —  were treated to Southern cooking, the NASA Space Center in Huntsville and a visit with Gov. Bob Riley during their visit to the U.S., sponsored by Panama Missions.
“We choose promising students from poor circumstances who we feel will benefit from the experience,” said the ministry’s director, Larry Brady, an elder of the Davenport, Ala., Church of Christ. “Our message to them is, ‘You can break the cycle of poverty by setting goals for your life that include high moral, spiritual and educational standards.’”
The four students attend Churches of Christ in the Panamanian cities of Sanson and Torti.
