It is my deep desire and hope that I will never fail my Lord, and that at all times, but especially right now, that I will be full of courage, so that Christ will be exalted in my whole being,

in everything I do or say, whether I live or die.  Philippians 1:20

MISSION TRIP to SPAIN...?Mid-July 2023? 

Trip Leader:  Phil Brown, former missionary to Spain













GOAL

Most of our service projects will center around Vacation Bible School type activities for children who are at Camp Montgo.  Plus, we will be doing various work projects around the Camp grounds.  We will also be having meetings with the Camp Leadership about implementing the First Priority strategy in the local schools, plus discussing how the Camp Montgo facilities can be used as a Mission Connection Center.


GENERAL SPAIN INFO

Picture a place where snow-capped mountains give way to rolling groves of olive & citrus trees; where the waters of two mighty oceans lap the pristine shores. Imagine medieval towns and sleepy fishing villages virtually unchanged in 500 years, juxtaposed with popular beach resorts. Ancient castles, cathedrals, mosques, aquaducts, and windmills, remnants of civilizations long since past, await exploration and re-discovery. Combine this topographical variety and richness of history, with every diversion imaginable: villas overlooking the powerful sea, museums boasting priceless collections of art, the grandest and most extravagant palaces in all of Europe, and restaurants comparable to none.  The catholic heritage of Spain has created a chasm that seems almost impossible for other Christian organizations to bridge, because 95% of Spaniards claim to be catholic, yet less than 10% are actually practicing catholics. Therefore, most Spaniards put their faith in their religion instead of a relationship with Jesus.
