Executive Brief...
1. Preparations for Trip to Canada continue...
2. Applying World Team Values
3. Evangelism - "The Passion of the Christ"

One prayer that has become special to me (Jacob) since our World Team conference is found in Ephesians...

"... that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." (Ephesians 1.17-19a, NASB)

What's Been Happening...

1. Train bombing in Madrid
Thank so much for your prayers in this regard. There have been a few more scares, including a violent arrest attempt. Please continue to pray for the new Spanish government as they wrestle with the realities of these attacks.

2. World Team Conference in Budapest
The conference was an extremely valuable experience. I learned a lot more about World Team as an organization, and especially enjoyed learning about works going on in different parts of the world. Now comes the hard part, the application! More info below...

3. Recruitment Video project
This is an ongoing request. Most of the taping has been done. We really desire this tape to stimulate more interest in missions!

4. Preparations for Canada visit
Our family is planning to be in Canada for June, July, August, and most of September...
Another ongoing request! More below...

What's New...

1. Preparations for Trip to Canada continue
Here's a basic layout. Ontario in June, Manitoba in July, Saskatchewan/Alberta/British Columbia in August, Manitoba for a few days in September, family time in Ontario, and back in Spain for October 1. I am beginning to email and call people in Ontario now.
Our presence in Canada is an absence in Spain. We have a number of details to prepare, and loose ends to tie up before we leave. Pray for good use of time!

2. Applying World Team Values
The Gospel. Prayer and Worship. Interdependence. Leadership Development. We want our lives and ministry to exude these. Please pray for this process.

3. Evangelism - "The Passion of the Christ"
A LOT of people are going out to see this movie! I love it! Several organizations, like the Spanish Bible Society, have made attractive followup material. A number of churches (including the Aluche church, and our World Team churches) are helping people see the personal impact that Christ's death can have in their lives. There's also a wonderful website for followup ( Please pray that this would be an eye-opener to people that have discounted Christ's death as some lost legend or fantastic myth.

Blessings and love
