Spain Tenerife, Day 10, June 29, 2014

Blessed to be able to attend service and worship with a host of nations – Spanish, American, Venezuelan, and even Swedish, we were welcomed by our host church with open arms and the traditional two cheek kiss.  A great time of worship with song, communion, and the message, we clearly have been accepted into this local body of Christ.  For some of us, it was a reunion of sorts while for others, all things were new.  Both Tim and Kylie gave their testimonies in the service and while Tim has good control of the Spanish language, Kylie’s testimony was translated into Spanish.  A fellowship time followed the service as the PTR team mingled with the church until lunch time.  Served again by missionary Lois and her kitchen crew, we had a fantastic lunch which even included home made mashed potatoes.  A very valuable and meaningful team time followed lunch as we spent time worshiping in song, both a cappella and with Sajid on the guitar.  Hannah and Tim told their stories of what God has done and is doing in their lives and both were an encouragement to us all.  Continuing in our study of Philippines, we were blessed by the discussion and input from both English and Spanish speakers alike.  The team returned to their homes to change out of their church clothes and into something more comfortable for a meeting concerning the week’s clinics, then dinner, and then a trip into a nearby town for a little sight seeing, a little shopping and a little ice cream.  Following a great day of worship and fellowship, we returned to our homes to rest and prepare for what comes next week.  We are anticipating what God will do in us as well as with us as we engage with the children in the towns of Santa Ursula and La Victoria.  May God use these simple clinics to bring honor to Him and spread His fame through us.

For the team, Coach Brendan
