These last few months serving here in the Basque region have been full of many exciting opportunities. A few of my recent areas of ministry are:
Every Sunday evening the Tolosa Bible study meets in the city's cultural center. Together we enjoy a great time of singing, prayer, and a message from the Word. At this point we only have people coming from the Beasain church. Last Sunday, before the study, Jason (dark blue, to my right) and I walked around the city passing out tracts, with the goal of witnessing and inviting people to the study.
This Saturday we had our 30th Intensive Institute at the Aierdi Farmhouse. About 80 believers, mostly from the 3 churches here in the Basque region, enjoyed 5 hours of teaching on the book of Jonah. The guest speaker was Pastor David Bell, from Southern Spain.
Last week Dani, Santi, Jason and I sang a special number at church. I am so grateful to see the work that God has done in their hearts during this last year! Our little church building is packed out every week, and we are praying and taking steps towards renting a larger building.
I have begun to teach some private English classes in Beasain, both for a source of income, and also for the ministry contacts it will provide. I believe the Lord is leading me in this direction as a means of partially supporting my missions work. Please pray that the Lord would provide the necessary work and funds for my personal and ministry expenses.
-For the salvation of my English students: Maider, Xabi, Imanol, Alex, Izar, and Maria.
-For a ministry contact from the city of Tolosa. At this point all those who attend the Bible study are from our Beasain congregation.
-The building we are looking at renting for the Beasain congregation.
Thank you very much for your prayers!
