Missionaries to Spain - Tim and Paula Tjernagel
To the left you see a picture of one of our new adventures, "ENGLISH CONNECT" an academy that has been started through much prayer and planning. Together with our teammates, our local church members, and others in the community we were able to get this English Academy started on Oct. 1. One of the greatest needs that Spain has right now is for children and youth to improve their English. We have over 100 students taking regular classes, learning from native speakers. We´ve been able to provide a few jobs to people in an economy where there are no jobs. And most importantly, we´re able to be light and salt in the community so that people can CONNECT with Jesus. There is not time to count all the ways God has started this venture, so please shoot me a note if you like to hear some good stories.
Another initiative that started in Oct. was a Biblical training school. This has been a dream of our missionary team for quite some time and Miguel Ángel (the man in the light blue shirt top left) has been used by God to help start this training center in a region of Spain where there are almost no other options for quality Bible training. In addition, we are able to disciple young men and women in church planting, something that I just don´t see happening much in seminaries across Spain. Once a month we spend an entire day together, studying the Bible, listening to quality teaching, conversing over the best ways to reach communities with the gospel, sharing meals, and doing life together.
So please give thanks to God with us for letting us (that includes YOU!) be a part of these new ministries that strengthen starting up new communities of believers in unreached parts of Spain.
Until the whole world knows HIM! Tim, Paula, MaKayla, Nathaniel, and Hannah Tjernagel
