There are several areas that Thomaston Road is involved with in trying to take the Gospel to Panama. They are:
- H20 Project: Panama Missions, under the oversight of the Childersburg, AL congregation, exists to take the Gospel to the people of Panama. It began over 25 years ago and seeks to provide spiritual, physical & medical needs for the people there. One facet of the work is providing water filters that transform (in a mater of minutes) the dirty, contaminated river water that sickens-and can kill-to clear, pure drinking water. Each of these gravity-powered filters costs $50 and they last for YEARS. Regularly, our members make donations to our "H2O for Panama" effort. On average each month, we are able to provide funds for two to five filters for Panama.
- Operation Christmas Joy: Operation Christmas Joy is directed by Larry Brady and provides homemade dresses and shoe box gifts every Christmas to Latino and Indian children ages 0 to 17 years from the Darien Mountains and to those children hospitalized in Panama City.
- Sports Equipment Ministry: The "Step Up to the Plate for the Panama Missions" program began in 2008. Gates Winters, a deacon who is a retired school teacher and coach, was asked by Larry Brady to help organize a baseball and softball program for the benefit of children living in the Darien Province. After leaving Panama, Brother Winters started collecting the requested sports equipment and made several contacts acquiring a relatively small amount of equipment which was shipped to Panama via the University Church of Christ in Montgomery, Alabama. The mission team have a person in charge of the program in Panama now. Gates works with the program on a continuing basis by trying to collect as much baseball and softball equipment as possible. All and any equipment are accepted from individuals, organizations or church groups willing to donate to this cause. There are no expenses incurred by those donating the equipment since all expenses are covered by voluntary donations. We just need good used sports equipment that no one is using any longer. The "Step Up to the Plate for the Panama Missions" is another avenue of mission outreach that provides the youth with a wonderful form of recreation.
- Short Term Medical Missions: The entire Darien Mountain region of Panama is served by medical teams all across the nations giving the under privileged Latinos and Indian tribes free surgical care, eye and ear care, and help with general health issues. Simultaneously, information relative to New Testament Christianity is afforded to those who are cared for at the Sanson Medical Clinic. Medical missions serve as introduction to Christian service which propels the acceptance of New Testament Christianity.
