Partners in Spain-Prayer Requests for December 2018:
Ask the Father to guide R. & L. Z. as they help the coordinators in the Canary Islands and Barcelona finalize camp locations and dates for next summer´s children´s camps for the national church. It´s unsettling not to have it locked in already as they need to recruit North American volunteers.
Ernie & Marilyn Klassen´s last Sunday at El Campello Community Church, Alicante, will be on November 25. It will be a bittersweet moment as they say farewell to this bilingual congregation they have had the joy of serving and growing over the last three years. Pray for Andrés Romay, a Peruvian Alliance intern, who will continue in youth and worship through April 2019 without his mentors.
