The reach of the churches in MNYBA stretches across the world. Last month, I traveled with Salomon Orellana, pastor of Iglesia Bautista El Buen Pastor and Iglesia Bautista Luz de las Naciones to Madrid to see how we can partner together with Spanish Baptists.
We visited in five churches, met with pastors and leaders of the Baptist Association in Madrid, and spoke at the Baptist Seminary of Madrid. Everywhere we went, we met faithful leaders committed to growing churches and raising leaders. The potential for our partnership is great!
Upon our return, Pastor Orellana shared with our pastors the invitation of Madrid Baptists to come and help them this fall. We already have five MNYBA churches who want to establish an ongoing relationship with churches in Spain.
Thanks be to God!
I am grateful to our leaders like Pastor Orellana who have the lost people of the world on their hearts. I encourage you to pray for our leaders as they seek God's direction about this possibility.
Please put May 21 on your calendar. This is the date for ACTIVATE, the MNYBA Mid Year Conference. At ACTIVATE you'll hear more about Madrid and the global mission of MNYBA.
Speaking of that, over the next several days, I will be in East Asia teaching the Bible and evangelism to church leaders there. It's another example of the reach of your association!
