Kaixo! (hello in Basque) These past months have been very busy and exciting for the ministry here in the Basque region. A few of the highlights have been baptisms from our church, witnessing opportunities, and a mission team from People’s BC in Maryland.
Baptisms at the Irun Church
This past Saturday two believers from our church were baptized! What a blessing it was to see these two young people obediently follow Christ’s command. One of the believers, David, had a number of unsaved family members attend the special service. They were presented a clear presentation of the gospel.
Language Studies and Witnessing Opportunities
In addition to learning Basque (for me, Spanish for Jordan), we are both making friends and contacts in our classes. This past week my Basque class had a pintxo contest. During the event, I was able to have good conversations with some of my classmates (which is normally difficult in the class setting). One of the men (standing beside me in the picture) sounded quite interested in my involvement at church and even expressed interest in visiting sometime. I was able to share the gospel with him. Please pray for our follow-up conversations. Also please pray for another young man I was able to share the gospel with recently.
Mission Team from Maryland
This past week we had a mission team from Maryland come to work at the farmhouse and help out with evangelism.
Euskal Herria (Basque Country)
Pablo is an intern from Mexico. He is helping in our ministry a few weeks this summer. Here Pablo and I are working on some finishing touches at the Irun church, just in time for the baptisms.
