This has definitely been a work in progress…
Beginning a bit over two years ago we started with a project to plant an Arabic-language church here in Madrid—
Two years in we decided to record our reflections on what works, what does not, and answer some questions from colleagues around the world.
Here are the four videos:
Leave any questions or comments below or at the YouTube page. We also have a
Let’s call it 2/3 vacation and 1/3 traveling work.
This summer the Miller family spent a week and half in the small village of Villaescusa in the Comunidad (state) of Castilla y León. We spent the next week and a half in a rural community outside of Posada de Llanera in the Comunidad (state) of Asturias.
We visited many historical and cultural sites. We went to the beach at the Bay of Biscay, we ate the local foods of
hornazo, Cachopo, fabada asturiana, sidra, and so on.
As a priest I also ministered at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Villaescusa, the Church of the Redeemer in Salamanca, and preached at the
Church of St Eulalia in Oviedo. For the first two churches, it was the first time they had received a pastoral visit in many months, since before the quarantine started in March.
Here are some pictures from Castilla y León:

In October of 2018 we embarked on a fascinating and challenging journey: starting an
Arabic-language fellowship in Madrid. Originally Dan and I launched it, but soon Raouf came on board.
Here is a picture from one of our weekly pastors’ prayer meetings:

A few weeks ago we sat down to think through some strategic issues, evaluating the past and looking to the future. This report is the fruit of that meeting:
