Earlier this month, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Spain with a group from GPBC, and serve alongside our global partners, Dan and Eva Anderson. God gave Dan and Eva a heart for the Moroccan immigrant and Spanish community within the La Fortuna neighborhood of Madrid. Through their faithful service, God is impacting the lives of families in La Fortuna as He breaks down the cultural and spiritual barriers between them and Jesus!
“In the same way, let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.”
-- Matthew 5:16
The Andersons’ light is shining as they show love to the people in the La Fortuna community. It was inspiring to see how God is using Dan and Eva to build relationships with the Moroccan immigrants and Spanish people by allowing them to become a trusted and valued part of their community. The Friendship House offers several services for the community including language classes, clothing closet, sewing group, and after school care and tutoring for children. As Dan and Eva meet the needs of the community, they help the people of La Fortuna discover the love and freedom available through Jesus. These relationships give them the space to speak into the spiritual lives of people who may otherwise reject them for being Christ followers. I pray God continues to bless the Friendship House and Dan and Eva’s ministry, and that He will continue to tear down barriers that exist between Himself and the people of La Fortuna.
The Spain mission team would love the opportunity to share more of how God is using the Friendship House and Dan and Eva to help the people of Spain grow closer to Jesus! Please join us on Sunday, July 1 from 12-1:15 PM in the Mount St. Helens/Hood Rooms for a time of sharing and praying for the Andersons. Snacks will be provided, I hope to see you there!
