|Across this Sea have come many immigrants,
from the shores of Africa and South America
to the shores of Spain,
looking for a better life.
|To get to them, we cross mountains and deserts
in trains, or buses, or cars
| Working with the Alliance, helping embryonic churches by mentoring
pastors and elders and teaching the Bible to new believers
|Many - most - of the pastors we've met here have had little or no previous contact with the C & M A . . .
but they clearly have known GOD well for a goodly season !
WE can learn a lot from THEM.
|In Spain, even though vast open spaces stretch between the cities,
people crowd together around very narrow streets
just like in the rest of Europe.
|The Church in Spain is becoming a very diverse body !
| Immigrants to Spain - and we ourselves - adjust to cultures already in place
. . . cultures that include and go back to Gypsies, Arabs, Visigoths,
ancient Romans and Gauls . . . and Phoenicians: the Canaanite race
that preceded the Jews in Palestine
|Back home in Camarma, we balance preparation of Bible studies
with family time, and studying Spanish
