By Prayer and Fasting in Spain
Mar 27, 2017
AGWM Personnel in Barcelona, Spain, Missionary Associates Nick and Kelly Seders, are excited at the result of the prayer emphasis at the International Church of Barcelona.
Nick relates, “In January, the two of us worked very hard to create a 14-day journal, to guide our congregation through a time of intense prayer and fasting. We were so glad to see our brothers and sisters internalize the Word of God, as they expected him to respond to prayer and help them speak truth to their peers. Out of those two weeks came inspiring stories of university students introducing their friends to the Bible, ladies having Christ-centered conversations at work, and men witnessing in public.
“The prayer and fasting culminated in a new season of community groups (small group ministry). More than 20 groups are now meeting together! Having received the charge to oversee discipleship within the congregation, I hope to raise and equip leaders within that ministry, so that our community of faith begins to multiply itself throughout Barcelona in a movement of disciple-making.
“One thing I’ve implemented is a weekly Sunday Review – a discussion guide that helps leaders expound upon the most recent sermons, and explore the truth of the Gospel with their groups. This is helping people of all backgrounds engage the Word of God on a consistent basis!
Kelly is also instructing others in obedience to the Word, as she pastors the children that participate in ICBKids activities. Every Sunday, in coordination with a great team of volunteers, she leads the kids in worship, prayer, and the examination of Scripture.”
