To Spain, in the rain, mainly on a plane.

I am flying to Spain in a few hours to visit churches in Barcelona and Sevilla (Seville). I’ll be traveling with my father and another Christian from the congregation in Tampa where I preach. We plan to be there for almost three weeks, returning to the U.S. on Tuesday, the 27th of this month.

This is not my only involvement in Spanish-language work. For anyone who does not know me personally, I preach for a bilingual congregation in Temple Terrace, FL, and travel to Colombia once or twice each year. This will be my third trip to Spain.

We are scheduled to arrive in Barcelona Friday evening (Spain time) and stay for a week, spending each evening with a church there. We will then travel to Sevilla and meet with two congregations there before heading back home.

I plan to post photos and updates of our trip on this space, so feel free to visit regularly. In the meantime, here is a photo from my previous trip, taken two years ago. It shows some of the young people from the church in Dos Hermanas, near Sevilla. My daughter Laura is on the right wearing the red/pink outfit. (I was able to bring her and my wife, Melanie, on that trip.)

    Oddly enough, it’s your child that has the red hair and the fair complexion, I never would have known….

    Have a safe and productive trip

    These kids are certainly the future of the work in Spain. I hope you can give them lots of attention. We’ll pray for your efforts.
