Dan travelled from Bucharest to Spain with Mark and Kim, our son-in-law and daughter, to introduce them to the ministry team in Madrid. Pedro David of the Salem Church did an excellent job hosting and organizing the time as Mark and Kim became acquainted with the Salem work in the city. Particularly enjoyable were the visits to the home groups where younger people mingle with older adults because they deeply desire those cross-generational relationships.
With Mark’s expanded role in theological development of our Eurasia Region, Pedro David was keen to discover how Mark and Kim could bring contribution to their many young leaders. Though Kim had not been in Spain since her years as a young teen, her fluency in Spanish resurfaced and she was able to do much of the needed translation during discussions.
Thousands of Spanish flags have been draped on windows and balconies across Spain to show their support of remaining together as one country
