Today's Missionary Highlight: Katie N.

Serving in Spain

1. Tell us about your family.

I'm single, so no family over here. My parents and siblings and their families attend Valley Church.

2. How would you summarize your ministry?

I collaborate with the national-led church federation (the Spanish Evangelical Free Church) primarily through technological projects. I work in two areas: the federation's leadership network (local church leadership) and their online theological school.

3. Favorite non-ministry activity:

My favorite non-ministry activity is reading. Currently enjoying the topic of behavioral economics.

4. how you have seen God work recently?

Outside of my primary ministry, I've made relationships through attending Catalan (regional language) classes. After a few months of our course, I was walking with a small group of classmates and they were asking me questions about myself. I shared that I was collaborating with evangelical churches in Spain. They were each startled and said they had never met an evangelical before, nor knew they even existed in Spain. Evangelicals are thought of as members of a strange cult, and I didn't fit that mold in their eyes. I was pleased to tell them there are Spanish evangelical Christians and even a church in town. God certainly opened up the door in that conversation and many since!

5. Prayer Requests

Pray for the Spanish Church to have a heart for the world. It is widely accepted here that the church doesn't have a passion to reach others in their communities, much less in other countries. Pray that God would light the Church here on fire with a passion and desire to see others saved for the glory of God. Please pray for me also especially in my relationships with others from my Catalan class who are not believers. Pray for wisdom in our conversations and that God would give them eyes to see and ears to hear. 

 

Thanks so much to Katie for sharing this brief look into her life on the mission field. More missionary highlights are coming soon!
