Hello everyone, we just wanted to send a short update to give you an idea of what is going on in Barcelona. First of all, we love you all and are so thankful for each one of you! We hope that you are doing well and finding peace and rest in the Lord in a time when the world is in unrest. We know we serve a God who is more powerful than anything the world brings.
4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand;
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 4-7
This past week has been a huge blessing for both of us. We had friends and family come to visit us here in Barcelona. It was so sweet to be able to spend time with them and for them to see what our lives are like here. They were able to join us in some of the exciting things God is doing here in Spain and join us in our weekly prayer meeting. We thank the Lord for our time with them.
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
There may be a temporary quarantine here in Barcelona but we are doing well and have stocked up on the necessities. Here in Barcelona, as well as all over the world, people have a lot of fear. We pray that during this time we can help others see the love of Jesus and that He cares for us. Last night we had a very small number for house Church but we used that time to pray and give thanks to God.
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
We are praying for you all. If you have any specific prayer requests we would LOVE to be in prayer with you, feel free to respond to this email.
