Ministry in the States

Despite our plans to leave in February, our time in the States has been extended.  The reason is simple.  We are waiting for sufficient funding.  Our budget for Spain is much larger, so by necessity our partner base needs to  be larger as well.  Don't worry, the vision is still the same.  It's just taking a little longer than anticipated. We give thanks for all of you who have continued to partner with us during this time.  Read further to see what we have been up to these past few months.
Abi and Rebecca - Missionaries in the States

Abi and Rebecca served for 6 months in the La Red church in Washington, D.C..  We are so proud of the way they poured out their lives in service within the church and community.  They are disciples who are truly equipped and committed to making disciples for the Kingdom of God.
They returned to their home in Paraguay on January 26th.  In addition to serving in their local church they have both enrolled in the Baptist University in Asuncion.  Rebecca is studying nursing and Abi is studying psychology.    
Training in Costa Rica

The end of January we had the opportunity to join our colleagues for an Americas Regional Gathering in San Jose, Costa Rica.  Along with 94 other attendees, we participated in 5 days of worship, study, prayer and community.  The week's theme was "Form," focusing on the knowledge that we are continually being formed in the image of Christ as we are being used to form others.  All 4 members of our family left feeling equipped, renewed and encouraged.
Confirmation of the Vision

Spain continues to be the vision God has given us for ministry.  It has a population of about 48 million.  Close to 10 million live in towns without any evangelical presence.  Less than 1% identify as evangelical Christians.  Generations of children are being raised with no knowledge of the Gospel.

In August we shared that Donald will be involved in discipleship and church planting.  Carol will be serving in the area of developing Christian education.  Confirmation of our calling came when Carol was accepted at Regent University to complete a Masters degree in Christian School Administration.  It is a two-year, online program that will equip her for her new area of service.

God's will for this was confirmed further when she received enough scholarships to pay for almost the entire first semester!  


We Need More Partners

We are looking for partners to join with us in the vision God has given us for Spain.  We are in need of monthly, yearly and one-time gifts.

Your contribution will help bring us closer to the goal.

We are grateful, for your prayers and financial support!
