As missionaries to the Kuna Indians in Panama, Dave and Nancy Mankins were living their dream. After seven years of learning the culture and ministering among the Kuna, they had found a home in this small village.

Then, in one terrifying moment, their dream was shattered.

On January 31, 1993, Colombian rebels burst into their home and captured Dave, along with fellow missionaries Mark Rich and Rick Tenenoff. Helplessly, their wives watched in horror as the three men were seized at gunpoint and taken into the Colombian jungles.

Join us Saturday at 3:30 on “A Place Missionaries Call Home” as Nancy tells us her story.
