"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7
We are these earthen, clay pots, through which the Light of Jesus shines on the mission field of Gijón, Spain.

Our Field of Service - Gijón, Spain
Spain is the least reached Spanish-speaking country in the world, and among the least reached countries in Europe. You will recall how Spain stiffly resisted Bible preaching in the 16th century when the Inquisition sent many true believers to the stake. Since that time there has always been a particular hardness toward the Gospel among Spaniards. In the region of Spain where we work, Asturias, considered a cemetery for missionaries in Spain, there are just under 2 million people. In its capital city, Oviedo (210,000) there is one independent Baptist church. In the largest city of Asturias, Gijón (280,000), we are starting the second independent Baptist church-planting work in all of Asturias. We are excited to be preaching the Gospel in this needy country, and look forward to seeing how God will bless this step of faith.
Below is a quick video of our city.
Gijón is the northern most port city in Spain.
The people are all around us in need of a Savior, but they don´t even know of their own heart´s need. They wander through the streets and shops thinking they have every necessity met, except for the greatest need of all, Salvation from sin and Hell.

May our candles burn brightly so that the Light of the Gospel may be taken to each and every soul!
You can help those around the world shine for Christ more effectively. Moms, Ministry and More has started a blog event to help missionaries in many parts of the World. You may even receive an awesome cultural item from one of the many countries represented in this event.
Check out at Moms Ministry and More what is being donated from our corner. It is very unique to Gijón and you pronounce it "oreo". Now aren´t you curious?
Thank you for your interest in world wide missions. This give away should not take the place of your church missions giving. This is over and beyond what you would normally give to your church missions. If you choose to donate.
Thank- you! May God richly bless you!
***All Candle in the Corner funds alloted to our ministry will go to helping a young Mexican missionary family who just came to Asturias, Spain this year. They are under supported and in great need of just every day items. ***
