First things, first...

Greetings from León! We are excited to share what we have been up to these past two months and how we have seen the Lord's hand working in this beautiful country; thank you for praying for us!

What have we been up to? 

For the past year, we have been adapting and readapting to the new challenges of the Covid-19 world. Everything seems to be very different in our lives these last 13 months, yet one thing continues to be the same; our Savior. He does not change. A passage that brings comfort to our lives has been Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever" What a comfort it is to meditate on this truth! 

On the Ministry Front

Iglesia Evangélica de León 

We continue to be thankful for our loving church. Our pastor is doing a series on Ephesians and we have seen our church members grow in their love for Christ as a result of their exposure to these truths. Please pray for our congregation as we continue to meet with certain restrictions. 
Our men's and women's ministries are thriving, though we are still meeting using zoom. Melissa had the great privilege to teach during the month of April; there have been more than 40 women in attendance. 
Gus continues to serve in different capacities.  lately, he's gone back to his roots, at least once a month, he has been helping with music playing bass. He's loved to help with the worship team. He continues to do a series on the attributes of God once a month and to preach occasionally.

Seminario Berea 

Our seminary continues to train men to preach God's Word. In March, we had 3 classes with our 3 different cohorts. Expository Preaching, New Testament Studies, and Ecclesiology. All these classes are still being taught online. Our students are responding very well and we are hoping to graduate 10 men of our Bible and Theology cohort in June (we will give you an update when the time comes). We also had an amazing opportunity, as you can see from the pictures below, we had a donor provide us funds to buy the Biblical Doctrine book by Drs. MacArthur and Mayhue to give them out to pastors and leaders of churches around Spain. We mailed 200 copies of this book to pastors, leaders, and graduates. We received so many emails and texts of gratitude! Praise the Lord for His provision!

On the Support Front 

We are so thankful for many of you that pray for us and sacrificially give to our ministry here in León. Thank you!! Continue to pray for our support to increase and for us to trust the Lord through our support-raising endeavor. Also, please pray to see if the Lord has laid it on your heart to support our ministry in Spain, click here for more information.  Remember that 100% of your taxable-deductible donations will go into our accounts and will be used for ministry here in Spain. Thank you for praying for us in this very important area. 

On the Family Front 

All three boys are doing well, all things considered. Continue to pray for their salvation and for wisdom as we parent them.

Finally... 

Please continue praying for us! (You can check out our prayer requests on the side column of this newsletter.) We are so thankful for your prayers and continued support of us. It is encouraging to know that we are not alone as we continue on this journey for the glory of God! 

Thank you again for your prayers and love to us!!
