Hi from Spain. How is your summer?
We are doing very well. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and giving. The Lord is blessing the ministry and bringing increase. He is so good!
The top pictures are from the church picnic. Bottom pictures are a youth meeting and the church nursery.
As I have been seeking the Lord lately, it seems that He is emphasizing the importance of our Life of God International Prayer Team. There are things that He would like our ministry to move into, but we need power made available to be able to accomplish this. Look at what the scriptures say:
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16b [AMPC]
For I am well assured and indeed know that through your prayers and a bountiful supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) this will turn out for my preservation (for the spiritual health and welfare of my own soul) and avail toward the saving work of the Gospel. Philippians 1:19 [AMPC]
Thank you to those who have already joined the prayer team. Perhaps you would like to as well. Simply reply to this e-mail and we will send you periodic special updates and prayer requests. It would be great to have you join us in regular prayer for this work in Europe!
We had our first conference in the Burgos church this June! Pastors Jeff and Renée Mitchener from Family Church in Mayville, NY and their daughter Ezra joined us for dynamic ministry. It was a great blessing to us and brought increase and correction to the church. Below are pictures from the conference and their visit.
God is moving in the earth! We won’t be distracted by difficulties or extreme busyness. We will focus on the Lord and His Word and continually ask Him to lead us into His highest will. Let’s walk on together in all that He has planned.
Above are pictures from recent mission trips. The top picture is Pastor Jeff with a Christian brother in Nykoping, Sweden. The middle two pictures are from artic Finland. The bottom two pictures are from Belfast, Northern Ireland in April.
On these trips, we have been seeing more opportunities to share the gospel and hand out Christian books. People are increasingly open and receptive. And we return to these cities to continue and finish what the Lord has started. Europe will be won!
