Calvario De Jerez

Hello All,

This is a picture taken shortly before we left back in December. This is our church leadership, and actually, almost the entire church! Much of the reason is due to her troubled history. Calvario De Jerez has been through many trials and tribulations since it's inception. From a church split over the rejection of the Faith Movement's teaching to personal character attacks upon Pastor Carlos, this church has been through much over her 6 year existence. In all that time, Pastor Carlos has been faithful to teach the Word to the church and to be an example of godliness to them. What has remained are fruitful believers, who are faithful brothers and sisters.

Today, our church has about 20 members, several of which are from outside of Spain, themselves members of spanish speaking countries. We have 3 Bolivians, 2 Guatemalans, 3 Brazilians and a woman from Uruguay. Each of these people have come in order to find work, which is abundant, especially in elder home care. We are grateful for each one, as they are each fine witnesses in the community among their employers and an encouragement to the leadership of the church.

Our family came here to bless this church and to work alongside her Pastor. What has happened more often than not is that they have blessed us in greater measure. It is a privilege to stand and work alongside them.

Blessings To The Friends Of Spain,
Frank Sanchez
