Members of MTW Madrid at Living in Grace Conference

Kristy and I had the privilege of spending last week at MTW’s Living in Grace conference. The purpose of the conference is to help incoming MTW missionaries better apply God’s grace to all aspects of life. We heard lectures on the Gospel, the love of God, repentance, humility, and a number of other topics to help us root our lives in God’s grace and extend that grace to others for the glory of God.

Another great aspect of this conference was the time we were able to spend with other incoming MTW missionaries. It was simply refreshing as we connected with old and new friends who are experiencing many of the same joys and trials that we face as itinerating missionaries. We had a wonderful small group (two other couples, both going to Berlin) with which we were able to share our lives and the ways in which God is at work in drawing us to Himself.

One of the best parts of the week (aside from the giant waterslide) was being there with three other couples who are planning to join MTW Spain. We already knew the Terrells from when they lived in Athens, but we met the Barnes and Brink families for the first time this week. All of these couples are planning to leave for Madrid around the end of the summer. Please pray that God would use each of them in wonderful ways to build His Church in Spain!

Living in Grace was a wonderful time of preparation for the work to which God has called us. We wouldn’t have been able to attend this conference without the help of our wonderful support team. Thank you very much for this refreshing, encouraging, and challenging week of training! Our prayer for you today is that God will enable you to better live out of the grace God has extended to you in Jesus Christ!
