Hola! After a week of ministry in Girona, the team got to spend a day off in Barcelona on Saturday! We got to see the breathtaking Sagrada Familia and then we went to Montserrat, where there is a monastery on top of a mountain. It was an incredible day.

Today holds mixed emotions as we finished our last day of VBS. We will miss the children and fun days filled sharing God's goodness, praise music, games and crafts. It was sad to say goodbye but our hearts are full with thankfulness for seeds planted, decisions made and sweet friendships formed.

Today was decision day at VBS. Today’s theme was when “life is sad, God is good.” Oscar and Cindy taught the lesson about how God sent Jesus to save us from a broken world and Raquel translated into Catalan so all the children were able to understand.

Today we had our second day of VBS and it was so encouraging to see the kids excited to come back. We had two new kids that were not there yesterday! The theme of today’s lesson was “when life is scary... God is good,” based on the plagues against Egypt.

Our flight was cancelled due to the hailstorm in the DFW area, but we were able to be rebooked through London just a few hours later and finally made it to Barcelona yesterday. Praise the Lord for that because the hailstorm took out 47 American Airlines planes at DFW, but the one going to London didn’t get damaged so we were able to fly to the UK and hop over to Spain!

Team Spain is on its way back to Dallas. I’m thankful for all of the members of the team as they did a terrific job. It has been a blessing to partner with the Parnells in their ministry in Girona. Their love and commitment to the Lord and the Catalan people is contagious!

I have felt an amazing joy in my heart. God has given us the privilege to come to Spain and feel HIS Devine Presence throughout the different types of adventures we’ve had. We have met very nice people who are shining light for Our Lord. And this is the most amazing experience I have ever had in all of the trips I've gone on in my life. Being in Girona has opened my heart to work more for HIS Kingdom. The city of San Miguel, where the camp is located, has given me the desire to come back and serve as a volunteer. Tossa de Mar was my favorite place that we visited here in Spain and the Mediterranean Sea.

Today was a fantastic day! We helped work at L'Arcada encampment. L'Arcada is a Christian camp that has many similarities to normal camps you may have been to in the past (like an awesome ropes course, basketball court and water slide!) In other ways, it was very different (having the Pyrenees mountains in the background!)  We were able to serve alongside a kind, humble man named Rafa, along with his father and son, who work together to manage the maintenance operations at L'Arcada.
