ART COMPANY IN ACTION
¨ TEAM SET-UP AT THE COSTA DEL SOL (May 15-19)
> Arriving onThursday the Filipino group set a time for every theatre casts to be present for practice. Then held a prayer vigil on Friday while the Spanish group did their casting on Saturday afternoon. Then on Sunday right after the service these two groups gathered together for a time of prayer and fellowship. What a privilege to unite the body of Christ for the cause of reaching Costa del Sol with the Gospel message.
¨ LEADER´S CONFERENCE IN BARCELONA (May 29-31)
> Our YWAM strategic meeting was held in Barcelona, representing leaders from different parts of Spain. It was ´a time of sitting at the feet of Jesus´ (so as to say) for some input & spiritual recharging. It is essential that ministry leaders gather once in a while for fellowship and accountability. It´s great to know that all over Spain the Gospel is being spread out and Believers are being discipled to be effective witness of Christ!
¨ “JUICIO FINAL” THEATRE PLAY IN VILLA VERDE (May 10)
15 souls accepted the Lord as a result of the first public performance of our new theatre cast in Madrid. It was held in a small church but despite of the heavy rain the place was filled up. The performance was annointed. Rey considered it as a dress rehearsal as majority of the group expressed that it will be their first exposure to this kind of ministry. The challenge given to everybody was to pray for the person acting while others were waiting for their turn behind stage. It was powerful, how the acting was converted into a realistic, convincing & convicting performance. Praise God, now we are ready for a bigger challenge as the group has proven that … yes they can do it in God´s divine power and intervention, Amen!
¨ ´CLOSE-OPEN´ DOORS OF OPPORTUNITIES
Beyond our control and expectations the Lisbon outreach was suspended. The host church pastor and his family needed to leave for Brazil because of an emergency family situation, so we decided to cancel this opportunity which we considered as a close door. But the CENTRO DE GALLEGO cultural event site at the very heart of Madrid, in Puerta del Sol opened for ART COMPANY to gather youths from different churches for HIPHOP practices every Friday with follow-up practices on Tuesdays & Wednesdays. Dani´s (our talented son) one year training in a dance academy is now being used to disciple youths and win souls for Jesus!
¨ AFRICAN MISSION FESTIVAL (May 31)
Along with various artists both secular and Christian groups, ART Company was invited to participate on a fund raising festival to help an African mission based in Spain. For the second time around we took the privilege to be part of such an important ministry of helping an orphanage home in Africa to provide a better future for abandoned children.
