Story number 3 for 9 Dec 2002

By December 9, 2002

(Spain)–Spain has always been known as a graveyard for missionaries and resistant to the Gospel. But, missionaries are now reporting that the time may be at hand for a revival in that European country. Latin America Mission’s Ken MacHarg reports: “Spain is living a key moment according to LAM missionary Dayana Elasmar who has worked with church planting in the Extremadura region. But, she warns that church growth is slow. An average large church has between 50 and 100 members and, she says, U.S. supporters of missionaries in Spain must not be impatient when churches do not grow as fast as they do in Latin America. Christians report that only 650 towns in Spain have evangelical churches, leaving 7,000 towns and cities without an evangelical witness. Dayana says that Christians must be alert to God’s voice and able to move with God in each area of the country. For Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg. “
