I thought I'd best give a Spain update. My brother and his family live in Granada and right now in their garden the roses are blooming and I counted one lemon on their lemon tree. Considering they've not had grass in the places they've lived the last 20 years, this is sort of like Eden. Granada is the historic home of the Moors and Spanish Gypsy's, sits at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and is only 30 minutes from the Mediterranean Coast. Needless to say, they are loving Spain. I love imagining flying over there!
Their VISAS were recently approved and Chris flies back to the US to pick them up in a few days. He's being certified to open an English language school and has one student already - their landlord who isn't a Christian. Christianity is regarded as a cult. So the term "missionary" is not popular there or anywhere, really. Prayers for them are always appreciated.
