The Local Pastor and Missions
Relationships is a key word in missions.
We thank Rev. English for sharing this great video where he talks about the connection between the local pastor and missions.
Evan English is the senior pastor at Crossings Community Church in Columbia, SC, he is also a great friend to our family. In November 2020, our family visited this missions minded congregation, we thank them for adopting our family as their missionaries and look forward to growing in this new partnership.
Feliz Navidad from Spain and Blessed New Year 2022
“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness on them has light shone.”
Thank you so much for partnering with us to plant a missional and multicultural church from scratch here in Spain where less than 1% of the population consider themselves evangelical Christians. God’s faithfulness has been poured out on us through you! Together, this 2022, let’s continue "proclaiming the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)

A prayer for Spain
We praise the Lord for calling and bringing our family to the beautiful, but very needy gospel city of Madrid. Spain is considered “post-Chrtistian,” feeling they have evolved beyond a need for the God of the Bible. Here in Spain less than 1% (0.5) consider themselves Evangelical Christians, and despite the secular mindset, there is a new openness and spiritual hunger. "Our vision is to plant a missional and multicultural led congregation among young professional families in Madrid."
Please pray for Spain.

Visit to Ebenezer ARP Church
Thankful for our home Church, Ebenezer Presbyterian Chruch, our family was invited to share during their missions conference, “Declare His glory among the nations.”
We enjoyed a fantastic time during the Ebenezer Missions Conference.
- Juan Carlos shared a challenge to Evangelism during the men’s breakfast.
That evening Ruth and our girls shared about Spain with the children during the evening missions program.
- We shared our ministry update during a combined Sunday school.
Juan Carlos preached in their morning worship service.
- Ruth shared with the folks of the second mile club.
Once again thank you so much Ebenezer family for your prayers and faithful support throughout our years of ministry first in Mexico and now in Spain.
