February Update

Thank you so much for your continued partnership in prayers and finances. I am so encouraged by you and thank God for each one of you. I can’t fully express how encouraged I am by your partnership. It’s such a blessing to know I’m not in this alone and that you care about the Spanish people too. Thank you so much!

In the last newsletter, I mentioned that we were praying about a trip to the USA this summer with students from the English Academy. Good news is things are rolling to make this happen!

This past weekend we had an informational meeting for parents and students interested in the trip. We had 5 boys show up! Praise God for their interest. We hope and pray that we fill the 10 spots to give the max amount of kids this experience. Students have 2 weeks to sign-up, and we would like to see some girls sign-up too! 

This trip would be during the month of July. We aim to place the youth in homes with youth around their age. The students would spend 2 weeks with the family and then head to Castaway Club (a Young Life camp) for a week. The final week they would return to their host families. 

We are planning about one event a week for the Spanish youth. We’d like them to spend as much time as possible with the families, improving their English and making a strong connection. Our hopes are that the students see and feel the love of Christ in the families they stay with.

Please pray for this planning stage as we make arrangements here in Spain and in Wisconsin. 

Thank you so much for taking part in what God is doing in Spain! Please let me know how I can be praying specifically for you too.
