Spain Impact Mission Trip

Team Report

Impact Mission Success!

The team to Spain is back in Bend after spending ten days immersed with young people hungry for the Word of God and His ways.
 
Wyatt, Janelle, and Isaac Heinrich, Anthony Estrada, Dick and Teri Kruger, Isaac Villanueva, Sharon Hunt and Gonzalo Franco traveled to Alicante, Spain to participate in a Bible camp for teenagers & young adults.
Although most of the population of Spain is officially Catholic, the Spanish people are only about 1% Christian. Most of the culture has a very anti-church attitude, with some believers claiming that sharing their faith is like committing social suicide!
 
Our team helped provide ten days of strong teaching, including Apologetics, Why the Christian Faith is Real, and College of Prayer. Pastor Gonzalo preached on several occasions, along with interpreting and ministering to staff and friends. We were able to disciple, encourage, and pray with this beautiful group of young adults, and each of us was changed in the process.
Seeing these young people hungry for Jesus and falling more in love with Him gives hope for the future of the church in Spain. We’re excited to see how Westside can continue to support the efforts of our missionaries and Spanish pastors in days to come.

Our Missionaries in Spain

Toward the end of our time in Spain, Pastor Gonzalo spent one day visiting and encouraging our Westside-supported missionaries in neighboring Seville. Tristan & Jackie Cross have recently planted a local church to reach ethnic Spanish families (distinct from the international Spanish-speaking communities that call Spain home).
