We thank God for all who support us through prayer and financial support. We asked you all to pray that we would be able to attend Mission Orientation Training this summer. We have been granted permission to attend this required, important pre-field training if we can attain 66% of our ongoing support by August. We are currently at 58% of our needed ongoing support! A delay in this training could shift our departure date to Spain.

There are 8124 towns in Spain. 92% of these towns don’t have an evangelical church. (3)We need your help. To make our 66% goal we need to gain 8 by 8, this means we need to raise $800 in ongoing monthly support by August. For those of you who have considered partnering with us in making disciples in Spain, know that your ongoing support at this time would make a significant impact on our ministry.

Today, we are asking you to help us reach 8 by 8. Whatever the size of your ongoing support, you will help us to attend the required training and get us that much closer to Spain. Even though 65% of Spaniards claim to be “Christian,” this is a cultural identity rather than a true saving faith. Only about one percent of Spaniards have a saving faith in Jesus Christ! Your support will bring the hope of the Gospel to Spain and make an eternal impact.

We are in this for the long haul. We have left our jobs in order to seek out partnership in the Gospel so that we can be a part of making disciples in Spain. Will you partner with us?

Please prayerfully consider becoming an ongoing partner with us in bringing the Gospel to Spain? You may not be able to do everything, but don’t let that stop you from doing something to help bring Spaniards to Christ.
