Daniel, Gail, Melissa and Ruth Castro travelled to Spain in August 2010. They are located in Fuente el Saz del Jarama, a town about 15 minutes to the north of Madrid, very close to the towns where the rest of the Vision Norte team live. They have recently been involved in an exciting, unprecedented evangelistic event. They report:
“There were also participations from children and young people with whom we have been working for a while. Although there was a very clear call to follow Jesus, it’s early days to know the response of the new people as there was not an altar call. We will only know through the people that invited them. There were about 140 people attending, and about 30 of those were completely new people, not bad at all for Spain’s standards. There was a good atmosphere, people were participating and the message was very good and clear.
Some of the things we accomplished:
To present the gospel very clearly in a town with one or two Christian families but where this had never been done before.
To bring together some Christians that live in the area and two small churches (the only two in the 15 towns we are working in). Some of these Christians were dormant spiritually and were so inspired by what happened that they are now asking where they can start to serve. There were also some Christians from a couple of churches in Madrid.
To start something the team had been praying and dreaming about. We would want to do this at regular intervals, maybe every two months, and we had a good start.
There is so much to do and to pray for about the work here. Thanks for being a vital part of it. May God bless you and guide you every day,”
