In 48 hours I will be flying to Spain for four weeks, leading two exposure trips to serve a social and cultural integration center in Madrid.
Our first team of five arrives Tuesday and will assist in English classes as well as travel to Melilla, Spain in North Africa for an outreach.
A few days after the first team departs on June 10, a second team of eight young adults will join me in Madrid. The second team will also serve the center.
These exposure trips are designed to not only serve alongside friends engaging with Muslim people and culture in unexpected places. Both trips include culture learning through mosque visits, a culture class with a Moroccan immigrant, and a day trip to Toledo, Spain where histories of Christianity, Islam and Judaism reside in one place.
- Spirit-led conversations with the Muslims and national Christians we meet
- Safety in our travels to/from Madrid and Melilla
- Joy and unity among the team members and missionaries
Madrid is reachable. We will help.
