This webpage is to honor the life and ministry of Beryl (Christina) Green (1927-2002), a New Zealand missionary to Costa Rica and Panama for nearly 40 years. The amazing impact of her work in those countries has not really been appreciated in New Zealand. This is partly because Beryl herself was not one to boast of her achievements and partly because she lived and travelled in remote areas at a time when communications were restricted to post or person.
Itwill only be when the crowns are handed out in heaven that the extent of Beryl’s
work and influence will be revealed and rewarded. We have chosen to present a brief biographical sketch followed by photographs, testimonies and accounts of Beryl and her ministry from people who have visited Panama or knew of her work in some way. We hope that you will be inspired and blessed as you read these accounts. Beryl’s work invites us to press into the same level of anointing she had to impact a nation for Jesus.
