NEWS FROM ALCORCON - SPAIN
At the end of January, we had the annual conferences of our Reformed ministers association in Spain. This time, we held the meetings in the church building in Toledo. We also took this opportunity to have the official opening of the building for public worship. The work in Toledo is still very small, but there are now several people attending the services every week. There is a woman who is faithfully attending both morning and evening services on the Lord’s Day, and is taking a series of studies on discipleship to become a member there. She will be our first church member in Toledo.

With regard to the work in Alcorcon, a new family with three little children has started to attend our evening services after they got in touch with us through our web page. This family lives in a small town in the province of Guadalajara, which is about a one hour drive from the church. After their first time in our church, they met with me and expressed their desire to start coming to our evening services because they are unhappy with the unbiblical practices that they see in the Roman Catholic Church.

In the last few weeks, a middle-age woman from Eastern Europe, with a Greek-Orthodox background, joined us in the social work, and she also came to our evening service last week. She is depending on the town hall for a home and is concerned that she may need to move to another part of Madrid, which means she would not be able to collect the food or come to the services on the Lord’s Day. Please pray for this lady.

As we need more room for services, meetings and other church activities, we are now considering the need to look for a larger site. Following an initial review, we have actually found one that would be perfect for our purpose. Of course, we would also need to sell our old building so that we can buy the new one. We are waiting on the Lord to provide for this need.

As the new work in Toledo is growing little by little, we have seen the need to develop a new Book of Church Order, as the old church statutes are very basic. We have now commenced work on the first part, which is the Form of Government.

Pray for all of these matters so that the Lord will enable us to spread the Gospel for the extension of His kingdom and His glory.
