Greetings from the Joneses
Where has this year gone? The Center celebrated its fourth anniversary in October. We finally received official word and are now recognized by the Spanish government. We have seen God work in so many ways. We're thankful that we can have activities in the neighborhood. The annual Easter egg hunt went well. You can see photos here. Here are some photos of the AWANA club which has started. We hope to reach some kids in the neighborhood. If you want to catch up on what has been happening, click here to read our Prayer Updates or click on any of the topics on the side banner. Thanks for praying for Roy's surgery. It went well and he's recuperating.
As you may remember, we purchased a car last fall. Now we have to pay for it. The first year we are paying a monthly fee but will soon need to pay the full amount. If you would like to help with this purchase, you can do so by clicking here.
We're enjoying working as a team with Keith and Jody Hudak as well as our other co-workers, Caleb and Krystie Hague and their three children. They are expecting their fourth child soon. Ministry is so much easier and more fun when you can collaborate with others especially with these talented folks. This summer we spent time with Carla Blumetti and the Duryees who will be coming to work in our ABWE churches in the Madrid area. They both will be in Spain this Spring. David and Josué continue to be a big help with the teaching and preaching.
We continue to look for ways to reach Torres de la Alameda and the surrounding towns for the Lord. There are now several families who live in Torres de la Alameda and other families live nearby. English is still a useful way to make contacts. We thank the Lord for a renewed vision for reaching Spain and especially in this area where God has placed us. We pray that folks will come to the Lord.
Thank you for praying with us for the work here. If you would like to see a video and photos of the ministry center in Torres de la Alameda you can click here. You can also read our latest update by clicking here.

Spain is located on the Iberian Peninsula with France to the North, Portugal to the West and Africa to the South. There are 44 million people living in a country about twice the size of Oregon. Less than 1% consider themselves to be Evangelical Christians. Spain is changing though. About 10% of the population are immigrants from Eastern and Central Europe as well as Central and South America. We live in Campo Real, about 20 minutes east of Madrid and are beginning a new work in Torres de la Alameda.
