Jack & Nancy Farber PanamaJack.me

Missionary, Jack Farber began his involvement with LAM in 1977 when he participated in his first campaign in Panama. During this campaign, he had his first Bible study with a woman who was converted during the week. Over the years this woman remained faithful and raised preachers and preachers’ wives. This memory is special for Jack. He, his wife, Nancy, and two sons lived in Panama for two and a half years while he worked as the co-director of the Pan American Bible Institute. Jack, also known as “Panama Jack,” enjoys being a deacon, woodworking, fishing, and being a grandpa to his four grandchildren.
