This week there were two holidays, one day apart from each other, so we had a little extra time off from school and work. A few weeks ago, a church in Barcelona called me to ask me if I would speak at a special church retreat which would take advantage of those days, so our major activity this week was that retreat. Our family with a couple from our church spent four days with a group of about 50 representing several churches. The Lord gave us a wonderful time of fellowship in the word. I preached six sessions from James chapter one about dealing with difficulties. Back at home, Israel held the service with the remaining believers.
