Dear Praying Friends
Thank you for praying for us over the past weeks! God continues to guide our steps each day.
Photos - taken this weekend at the MBTI workshop and on my visits to the groups in Calatayud and Zaragoza.
Karen served a new team in Madrid with an MBTI workshop. This is a newly formed team of seasoned missionaries, beginning a new work in Madrid. Pray for them as they learn to know each other and work together in pioneer church planting.
Jacob visited the Calatayud and Zaragoza groups this past weekend. It's always a pleasure to serve by preaching, teaching, and just participating. Each time I visit these groups, I get to know someone new! God is building his church!
New arrivals! – Craig and Brenda Landrum scheduled to arrive March 8, 2011. The Landrums will assume responsibilities in Calatayud as Juan Carlos and Tere pursue other options. We're so looking forward to the injection of new energy!
Preparations for the annual Spain wide leadership retreat are underway. We're still working to finalize some of the details. These retreats are important as we are so spread out throughout Spain, and have little regular interaction throughout the year. Slowly we are seeing this develop a sense of "community" across the distance.
Health concerns... two families on our field are really being affected by health concerns. Would you pray for the Cook family and the Tjernagel family this week as they continue to grapple with how these health issues affect their lives and ministry? Thanks!
Thanks again for praying! We sincerely appreciate your partnership in this area!
