Barcelona, Day Nine: They Will Know You are [true] Christians by Your Love

Another week has begun. It is still unreal to us that we not only get to see this ministry in action, but also we get to participate in every part of it, partnered with some of the coolest people we have ever met.  We were sad to say goodbye to our amazing Indiana team. You guys were so wonderful, and we loved working alongside each of you. Your sweet spirits left a mark here, and your names, faces, and selfless love will be remembered always. Thank you for letting the two of us be a part of your team while you were here. We so enjoyed each of you and miss you greatly!  We will eat double servings of all the gelato we can get in your honor. Love you!

We have been and continue to be so blessed by the long-term team of servants working in the ministry here. They have such incredible love for the people they are serving, and they have been so willing to let us learn and minister at their sides. They have accepted us into their homes, allowed us to share our hearts, and shared their own with us. The humility with which this team serves, and the love they have for one another is a daily testimony to us of what the ministry of Jesus should look like. Although only a week has gone by, they have become dear, dear friends, and we are so excited to spend four more weeks learning, serving, and being blessed by these amazing people.
Today, we started working with a new team from the Midwest, U.S. We can't wait to hang out with them these next couple weeks!
