God is waiting for you all. He has lots of adventures up His sleeve. And it is all so that you learn to depend upon Him.
May the Lord bless your ministry in Spain our second home. We still miss it a lot We never had the time to go on the camino but one member of our church did. May the Lord bless you and open many hearts to the real Jesus. Many young people go on the camino but do not know the Lord. It is one of the things to do. God bless. John and Ninfa Dixon
