Greetings Changuinolenses from Panama

In 1985 I responded to God’s call to the mission field as a volunteer missionary in the Republic of El Salvador during the summer months. I returned to El Salvador in the summer of 1986.

In 1987 I was commissioned for the first time by International Ministries to work full time in El Salvador. I was there for different periods of time: first, as a missionary of International Ministries and later on as an independent missionary working with the Emmanuel Baptist Church of San Salvador until August 1994.

I thank God that after being commissioned for the second time as an International Ministries missionary in 2001 I am now approaching my retirement time which will be April 30, 2021. I am retiring from International Ministries, but not my call as a missionary. God willing, I will continue living and serving in this place developing the activities that God directs me to do.

I arrived in Changuinola, Bocas del Toro, Panama, on September 11, 2001, the day of the attack on the Twin Towers, WTC in the United States. God has been wonderful during these 19 years that I have been here working for Him.

Through this letter, I formally announce my retirement date and my deepest gratitude for your support, all my brothers and sisters, who have faithfully accompanied me for the last 19 years in Panama.

In Christ, model and figure for my life,


Rev. Ingrid Ivette Roldán-Román
International Ministries Missionary
