Or kids attend a school that Sharon and I really appreciate–Colegio el Porvenir. This school was founded by a German Protestant some 120 years ago when Protestant children in Spain had a very, very difficult time finding decent education. This is a recent class picture of our youngest daughter’s 2nd grade class going on a field trip here in Madrid.
All of this to say we’re thankful for this trilingual school, the fruit of German missionary work here over a century ago.
PS: Our daughter is the blond one on the right leaning against her teacher.
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.

We recently arrived in Madrid and I felt like posting a fw pictures from here. I have taken pictures of various places that denote the strong Latin American presence here, though I have also seen many signs with Arabic of Islamic terms as well.
From top to bottom: Need Santeria? We got it right here in Madrid. Middle: My daughter with a traditional breakfast of churros and hot chocolate. Bottom: “Restaurante Aroma Latina”. Lots of dishes from (I think) Puert Rico and/or the Dominican Republic.
