THE JOY OF A NEW CHURCH-PLANT!
Campo de Gibraltar, Spain
Dear praying friends,
This has been a summer absolutely full of exciting firsts for our church-plant in the Campo de Gibraltar region.
We are so thankful to all of you who have made the rental of our church-plant building possible through your sacrificial giving to the Los Barrios Special Project.
We have been humbled, overjoyed, and sweaty as we work away at getting our outreach ministries going this summer.
Our family has been so surprised as neighbors and casual acquaintances have accepted invitations to come to some of our activities.
JD has enjoyed preaching through the Gospel of John and planning special times of Bible teaching and exhortation to our small and growing group. We have also enjoyed the help of our summer workers, John Michael Coleman and Rona Lee. We also had two families who are very close to our family, also make our church plant a destination-stop for their summer vacation. We are so happy we got a visit from the Higgins and Moothart families.
Please pray for our outreach camp from August 6-11th. We will be welcoming local kids and a mission-team from San Diego, CA. Sign-ups by campers have been slow despite lots of effort to sign-up 11-17 years-olds in our region. We are praying that some families will sign-up at the last minute so that their children can be blessed and ministered to.
On August 24th, our mission-team is helping us host a community Vacation Bible School and BBQ at our new building. Please pray for our community to accept invitations to come and here the Good News.
Thank you for your prayers,
JD for the Bennett’s
