Our New Church Building

We are moving in! This is the new building for Liberty Baptist Church, Gijón, Spain!

Remodeling and getting a new building up to city code is expensive! We knew we needed to do these changes and get permits but, it seems at times very overwhelming. We know the God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills and cares for every bird. That gives us comfort to know He will continue to care for our family even if the dollar drops time and again.

Let me go back a couple of months to explain how we got to this point.  For 2 years now we have needed a new building for services, and  for community activities in Gijón, Spain. When we came back from our third furlough, the end of January, God brought us to the exact building. We have been praying and praying for this move, so when the right one presented itself, and the funds to sign the contract, it seemed like a dream.

We just met for the first Sunday in our new church meeting place for services. Liberty Baptist Church now has a new home! Even though, we are still without water and building permits, we had a very blessed service, praising God for all the recent miracles we have witnessed. We thank God for all those who have given to make this possible, as well.

This past weekend, we had friends from Germany come on a missions trip. They paid for the materials and decorated the room I will be using for teaching English as an ourtreach ministry. It is the only room in the building where you can sit and not get dirty.

We covet your prayers as we are embarking on a new journey in uncharted territory for us.
