Last week’s update… online only @ April 29 Update

Spain Team’s “One Thing”
At our April “Team Building” Retreat, we all agreed to concentrate efforts on “One Thing” in this next year. We will band together as a team to see the new Guijuelo effort established in a reproductive manner. Please pray with us as we put feet to this proposal. I’ve been so excited to see the Guijuelo effort moving forward, and am equally excited to see what can happen when our entire team is used of God to advance this beautiful work.

Spain Team Prayer Conference
This Friday and Saturday, a number of participants from Germany and from the USA arrive in the Madrid area to participate in our 4th Annual Prayer Conference. Having other Europeans take part in this event presents exciting changes. This year’s participants will learn about ministry to Muslims, experience Street Evangelism, get information on ministering in a Postmodern setting, and understand a lot more about Spain! All these items become important elements in the various prayer opportunities offered the group. Would you pray for this group of “prayers?” My prayer is that God would have His way with them and would meet them all in a special way as they seek Him for further advancement of the Gospel in Spain.

Spain Team Member Health issue
Janet Cockrum recently wrote… Not good news about my dad. The cancer is wrapped around the blood system. Don’t really know what that means. Something about fingers into the other organs inside. The doctor is thinking maybe 8 months. They have sent off the tissue and think in about 2 weeks get diagnosis. We are all disappointed and I just hate for my mom to be alone. Pray some friend will come stay with her until I get there and sit with dad so she doesn't overextend herself. She had 11 friends there going in in groups of 2 to pray for dad before the surgery. How sweet the body of Christ is! How we are privileged to come alongside one another. Thank-you for doing this for me. Please pray for Janet and her family

Heart and Stroke Jump Rope for Heart (repeat of last week’s note)
