Spain | January 2017

A pre-conference visit

This past week I had the opportunity to visit Spain to view the site for a conference in July.   A lot of the 'site work' had been done in advance and contracts signed so this visit was an opportunity to work out the logistics of how we will work with what they have to offer.  It was not a difficult visit as the site is great and going to be ideal for our needs.

A pastor from one of the local churches showed us around and after the meetings took us to see some of the local area to have an idea of where we are coming to.  The area is beautiful.  We will be located on the edge of Terragona on the way to Cabrils, this is about an hour from Barcelona.

Here are just a couple of pictures i took well driving around...

A view off the main street in Terragona.
Yes, i will be needing to have a morning walk along this coast!

Further into the city this is the view with the old roman ruins just off the coast. 

This is a statue of Paul.  It is believed that this is the very spot that he shared the gospel when arriving in Spain. 

This is just a small little road that i thought was cute as we  were driving past and wanted to share with you.

Zachariah is 5! 

It is hard to believe but Zachariah is now 5.  He loved his birthday and his party with his friends.  He has announced that he is now ready for more responsibility now that he is 5.  We are not exactly sure what that will look like but glad he is up for the challenge.

Happy New Year 2017

WOW!!  It's 2017!  That seems to have snuck up on us real quick!!  I am not sure where the year went and i am amazed that 2016 is over but we had a great year and will take lots of memories, lessons and friendships forward with us.

2017 is already looking to be another great year.  We look forward to telling you about the plans we have for ministry and family and how things all play out as time goes on.

We continue to need and value your prayers for our family and ministry in this coming year and are so THANKFUL for all of you and your involvement in our lives, family and ministry throughout 2016!  Please know we are grateful for the roles that each of you have played in our lives.
Before they call I will answer, While they are yet speaking I will hear.

New Years Eve

December 31st, always an exciting night across the world.  We like many had a wonderful evening with friends, playing games and having fun.  Aaron almost missed it all, he had been in France for a few days with an OM Global Village event and his flight was cancelled then delayed further..... having him only arrive back in London about 9pm on the 31st.

Family fun, January 2017

A Few Family Days

We took the opportunity to sneak away from London for a couple of days after the New Year.  January 1st and 2nd we went to Folkestone.  The weather wasn't perfect and although we were at the coast none of us attempted to swim at the beach.  It was a few fun days of memories to end the holidays with. 

Well, it is fall already... time keeps sneaking past us faster than we can keep up with it. The kids are back in school and loving it! A...
