Sevilla Update, with Pics

We continue to meet every night with the church in the city of Dos Hermanas, a suburb of Sevilla. The weekly meetings are one hour long, so my father and I alternate the preaching. I will be speaking tonight (Thursday), but both of us will speak Friday evening since the weekend permits a longer service.

My father Royce began with a series of three lessons on “Why did Jesus have to die?”  Last night he presented, per request, a history of the Lord’s work in Colombia, South America. They asked for this lesson because they find this story of faith to be very encouraging, especially in the face of the secularism that dominates so much of Europe.

My lessons have included Bible Principles to Make Righteous Judgments, The Complete Definition of Evangelistic Work, and various lessons on Biblical Archaeology. My hope is that these subjects lend encouragement to brethren who frequently tell me how difficult it is to be a Christian here.

We have been able to spend a lot of time with people here. The number of young people is particularly encouraging. May they grow up free of the humanistic and Post-modern attitudes that shape so much of current Western culture.

    Enjoying reading your posts. I’m so glad to hear that the 3 of you have been able to provide encouragement to the brethren in Spain. I’m wondering – will there be an Encuentro de Espana anytime soon???? Hmmm – something to consider…
