Celebrating One Year in Malaga!

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith
as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain,
‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you.”
(Matthew 17:20, NIV)

Christ is building His “church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it” (Matthew 16:18, NIV).


Thank you for believing with us, for generously praying, giving, and even coming to work by our side. Your faith gifts, motivated by love, continue to make a difference in the lives of people. The Scriptures are clear that workers like us cannot go unless they are sent. Thank you for sending us! Your faithful giving, praying, and encouragement mean the world to us. Thank you for saying “Yes” to God and stepping into this work with us.

We Need Your Prayers … Here’s How:

1. For Jesus to be lifted high in Malaga, Spain. For existing churches to be encouraged, new churches to be started, and for a movement of people to follow Christ. 

2. For the new International Church plant in Malaga (ICM). For the hundreds of people we have connected with in Malaga, for spiritual, relational, and numerical growth in our home groups and Sunday gatherings, for God’s timing and provision of a Sunday Worship space, and for Christ to be lifted up in this city that we love!

3. For God to call people to come be a part of the ICM plant team. Please pray for three families including seven children (and one on the way!) who have joined our team, for our summer intern who will be arriving soon, and for a current mission family who is waiting for God to open a door so they can come. If you are interested or you know some one who may be interested in being a part of the team please contact us at our email:

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).
