Since we’ve been back in Ibiza January has flown by – we moved into our new apartment which we had just confirmed just before Christmas, which has been such a blessing and more than we could have asked for – it really feels like home already and will be a great place to host people and welcome people into! Thank you to those of you who prayed endlessly for us to find a suitable place to live – God went above and beyond in answering your prayers. It has been great to already have some visitors stay with us, Brian Heasley from 24-7 prayer, and Dave Slinn who will be moving out to lead the work of 24-7 Ibiza.
I’ve also been going to salsa classes this month – for those of you that know me well, you’ll know I’m not a dancer, and don’t do this kind of thing – but it’s been a great way to get to know people and to get out into the community and see some Spanish culture!
One of our main focuses has been getting out into the community over the last month, finding different events to go to and ways to connect with people, and trying to be in the places they are. It’s interesting in the winter season when many people aren’t about, but it’s been great to bump into people in the street and be able to have people over for dinner and just to look for ways to bless those around us.
This month we’ve had some of the usual stuff, keeping up with admin for summer teams and that preparation, sorting things in the 24-7 centre to begin the big clean up for the season, continuing with our own paperwork to become residents here in Ibiza, meeting with people and getting to know people in the community, and a few other things as well – but most of us prefer pictures, so here are some snapshots to give you an idea of what we’ve been up to!
