Art Expo for Refugees in Spain
Jul 03, 2017
Oasis Center in Madrid, Spain is an outreach to immigrants and refugees offering much practical help as they share living hope in Jesus. Ariel Rainey, AGWM personnel there tells of a special event held recently.
“We offered an art exposition for a week this month, featuring artwork from several Spanish artists, donated for auction to benefit the Oasis refugee ministry. We were able to auction off several pieces, raising over 1000 Eurosand we'll still be collecting bids over time on other pieces.
“We have many ministries ongoing under the umbrella of "Oasis" and a significant part is our refugee ministry. Most of our refugee work is outside of the Oasis building; it's in the refugee centers, in our apartments over dinner, in the city of Madrid while we're helping refugees find jobs and apartments, or even over coffee while we talk about Jesus and pray together.
“This event gave our entire team a chance to operate in different gifts, whether painting "live" or serving our guests or doing the publicity and public relations. We all got to join together for a worthy cause - bringing the gospel to refugees.”
