So we’re settling down nicely in Madrid. Got a bank account and will hopefully have a flat some time next week. My work here is related to ministry and education, which is pretty much what I’ve been doing since we moved to Nazareth back in 2008.
I’m pleased to be serving as deacon at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer (Iglesia Catedral del Redentor). This is the only cathedral church of the Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain (Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal). This is the oldest Protestant church in the country. What privilege to serve at such a historical church. Here are a couple pictures, and then a couple family pictures too.

Miller kids at San Lorenzo de el Escorial
Some time ago I took the DNA analysis test offered by Ancestry.com. It didn’t yield too much in the way of surprises, but it did give me a new found respect for people who record and document vital records. For example, I enjoyed seeing immigration documents for my most famous relative, Fernando Botero.
So, when a cousin of mine shared this document with me, I was very thankful. I thought I might share it here, so that anyone related to Mr. Wallace Ruben Miller of Culbertson, Montana—my great-grandfather—might be able to access this obituary. His son, my grandfather, Duane Wallace Miller, is noted here, as is my great-grandmother, Gudrun Nelson.
