Tenerife Day 9 – June 30, 2013 Sunday

Starting the morning with the church service, we began our second week in Tenerife.  United in the name of Christ Jesus, we worshiped with the Santa Ursula church.  Composed of Canarians, Venezuelans, and Americans, we worshiped the same God altogether in the same room at the same time.  Although not knowing everything that was being said, the Holy Spirit moved in the hearts of those non-Spanish speakers who were listening.  With the praise and worship songs having a familiar tune, we were able to sing along in English as the rest sung in Spanish.  One of the missionaries spoke on Hebrews 13, emphasizing Biblical principles that should be apart of our every day lives.  Lunch was another fantastic meal at the church where we enjoyed each other’s company.  Following lunch we met for Team Time where Kory shared with us about the life of Paul and how we can look at his life and gain confidence in our walk with the Lord.  We also heard testimonies from Lauren and Zoe, both of which shared how God has moved in their lives and what He is doing now.  A quick trip into the nearby town of Puerto de la Cruz allowed us to do some sightseeing, shopping, and of course have some wonderful gelato ice cream.  We returned to our homes for dinner and a time of fellowship with our hosts.  We have also prepared for our adventure next week as we will be sending a small contingent to a local town for a mini-clinic and the rest will hold a full size clinic in the town of our host church, Santa Ursula.  Once the mini clinic is over, those participating in that clinic will join the rest back in Santa Ursula to finish the clinic there.  Sound confusing?  Well, we’ll see how it all plays out tomorrow.  At the time of this entry, Spain’s soccer team is playing Brazil’s team in the championship game of FIFA’s Federations Cup.  It’s never a dull moment here in Spain when there is a soccer match on that captivates the attention of the country.

For the team,
Coach Brendan
