Chris, Liz, Leo & Samuel live just outside of Valencia, Spain and are involved in planting a local church. Within a network of 4 churches, they lead an outreach project to sex workers in the city. Alongside this, they also run a 9 month mission training school and are involved in overseas mission work in North Africa, India and Romania where they have planted other churches. Their church runs numerous projects including: men’s groups, women’s groups, youth ministry, football, English lessons, marriage courses, food distribution, training courses & job creation. Largely unreached with the Gospel, some research suggests that Spain is less than 1% Christian. With high rates of un-employment and poverty, Chris & Liz are strategically placed to provide hope and support to the Spanish community in which they live and work.
Please pray for: their children and family life, church growth, the local leaders they are training, financial provision, a strong support network and refreshment from the Holy Spirit.

Jarod & Bexi
Jarod and Bexi have been church planting in Croatia since 2014. They are working with a YWAM team who have a big heart for the people of Croatia. Not only do they run a church but also fortnight-long summer camps, English classes, and they have heavy involvement in children & youth work. A Discipleship Training School (DTS) with a sailing focus is now in the process of being established as a fresh way of discipling young people and helping them grow in relationship with God. In 2022, they felt God calling them to move on from Croatia and move back to the UK.
Please pray for: transitioning back to the UK, logistically and financially, and what to do with their St Brendan, their treasured boat!
