Happy Easter from the Book-Satterlees

The life, death, resurrection and God's sending of the disciples is why we go to Spain.  We've been called to vocational ministry as missionaries.  While we're not yet in Spain we got to enjoy Easter Sunday with family here.

I, (Kevin), was thinking that every Sunday is an Easter celebration.  What a great thing to be a part of week after week.  And we have been charged to go into the world and make disciples.  For many that charge is within their local work environement.  For us that is in Spain and we are ever mindful of that call as we hope and pray and watch God bring us closer and closer.

An increasing agnosticism in Spain means that Easter is increasingly irrelevant there.  I'm reminded again today, however, that Easter is not irrelevant.  And we look with great anticipation to be working alongside believers in Spain to show that what a resurrection people look like.

He is Risen...The Lord is Risen indeed!

On a related note, our friends in Spain have finally gotten their gas turned on 6 weeks after having moved into their apartment.  6 weeks!  That is normal from what I've seen.  Madrid winters aren't harsh, but they definitely require heat.  That said, we are reminded, even from this little anecdote, it is best to move in the summer.  We of course are ready to go as soon as possible.

Please join us in prayer this month to see the support come in abounding and that relationships on the other end of the pond (the Atlantic) would be formed and solidified that we could go in enough time to where if we have to wait for the gas to come on, that we wouldn't freeze and Eliana would not have to take frozen baths.

Happy Easter!
