Report from Spain: Barcelona Commentary

Youth Convention

This past month the first national youth convention of Spain was held in the city of Murcia. We were excited to have over 500 young people that came from all over Spain to be a part of this national event. During this first youth convention we were happy to have Missionary and President of the work in Spain, Gary Sones preach as well as Pastor Tony Suarez (Norfolk, Virginia). During the convention there were 13 that received the Holy Ghost for the first time! This is an exciting time for the UPCI of Spain, the young people of Spain left the conference on fire and excited about impacting their cities and churches.

Pastors Retreat

In the beginning of June we held our 2nd annual Pastors retreat. We have now grown to 37 churches throughout Spain and there has been a great need to minister to the new Pastors of this nation.
We are thankful that Rev. & Mrs. Luis Paez (San Diego, CA) were able to come and speak to the Pastors on the subjects of "marriage and family." They were a tremendous blessing to the Pastors of Spain.

Prayer Requests

That God would open the doors for a larger building for the church that we pastor in Barcelona.
For the city of Barcelona and the 4 million souls that live in this area.
For our Pastors and national leaders

For the 46 million souls that need to hear the gospel throughout Spain

Thank you for all your prayers and support. Together we are claiming Spain in Jesus' name!

God Bless,
Nathan, Tanya, and Alaina Harrod
