Missionary Update from Justin & Steffani

This is Part 2 of our Summer Update…

In our church, I have started sharing communion meditations, and the first time accidentally said Jesus ‘killed’ for us instead of Jesus ‘died’ for us! Whoops! Language is an ongoing learning skill to be sure. It certainly wasn’t the first language faux pas and it won’t be the last.

Every other Friday I lead our “reunion de jovenes” or youth group. At this time, it’s all guys, and we have a time of teaching and learning followed by some fun and shenanigans. We meet in our church building, or in someone’s home. The guys love playing ping pong, chess, and going bowling. I love investing in teenagers and it reminds me of the sweet years I spent in youth ministry back in Sarasota.

The past two months have been a bit of a blur, as we’ve spent a lot of time getting our ducks in a row with little David. Between embassy & visa appointments, medical check-ups, and all the legal paperwork required to have a child abroad, it has been quite a full season! May and June also included visits from our parents. We relished our time together, enjoyed sharing our life in Spain with them, and of course LOVED introducing them to their newest grandson!

Now, we’d like to share some prayer requests and praises.

 

Praises:

A good hospital & delivery experience for Steffani, a healthy baby boy, and healthy, albeit tired, parents too.

Baby dedication -our friend Pablo made it very special for us and even shared a biblical teaching about baby dedications at church. We learned a lot about ourselves in the process!
New relationships forming- evangelicals are seen as more of a sect in Spain, similar to Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons back home. As a result friendships are a necessary stepping stone to sharing the gospel. And it takes TIME!

 

Prayer requests:

Open doors with a particular adult student- I’ve started sharing my beliefs with him because I felt a nudge last week. Pray that the Holy Spirit starts working on his heart and drawing him to Christ. Pray for open doors in all our existing relationships.

Summer invitations- summer is a very social time in Spain, and we’ve received several invitation to join local families for various activities (I even attended a moto-bike event for one of my students last week)! Pray we take advantage of these invitations to speak openly about our faith.

Steffani- as she spends a lot of these first weeks/months at home with the baby, pray she finds the community and friendships she needs. Pray for other mom friends, and social outlets for her

For us- wisdom as new parents, and rest when needed!
