Despite a busy September with all of the house moving activities, Andy, Cam and I made a quick trip to the Basque Country and also Catalunya. Given that Daniel, Martu and Iker were leaving at the end of September and I had to be out of the house on the 15th, we made a window to make the journey down to those autonomous areas in what would most commonly be understood as Spain (a problematic understanding for many of the people with whom we serve, who are Basque and Catalan speakers, but perhaps a necessary one for you, the readers).(more…)
Something that we are experiencing in Kale Argia, our Basque-speaking community of faith, is seeing the grace and restoration of Jesus in people’s lives. And for that we give glory to God!
About a year ago, a young woman from the town of Hernani received Christ in her heart, and soon after she decided to be baptised. After being absent from the community for a while, she returned to the meetings, but this time accompanied by her boyfriend who soon also received Christ.(more…)
By God’s mercy, two and a half years ago we began with a team of Basque believers to plant a community of Christian faith in Euskara, the Basque language, here in the Basque Country. In 2019 the group was very small and we had meetings twice a month, but in 2020 the group grew and we began to meet every week as we continue to do today. As time went by we saw the conversion of Euskaldunes (Basque speakers) to Christ and the baptism of some of them. Without a doubt we saw the hand of God at work in the community! We can say that today the church in Basque, Kale Argia, is a reality and that there is a team of local Basque leaders. By the Lord’s grace and love, he allowed us to serve in this whole process, and we give all the glory to Him.(more…)

For some time we’ve been praying and seeking ways to join in Gospel work in Euskal Herria, the Basque Country, in northern Spain and southwestern France. The distinctiveness of the language and culture of the Basque Country has helped show the need for a missions strategy for reaching euskaldunes—speakers of Euskara, the Basque language—and we’re grateful for the many new acquaintances and colleagues that we’ve met involved in mission work there.(more…)
