This Fall Gail and I will be leading a select Team to Melilla, Spain. We will be working with Pastor Cesar Gil and Centro Nueva Vida, a church he planted and has pastored for 20 years. Our Team will assist with street evangelism, prayer, outreach events, including feeding and clothing the poor, and ministering in other churches in the city. We will also visit the city of Fez, for 2 days of “prayer walking” and experiencing the culture in Morocco.
Melilla is a Spanish enclave on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in northern Africa, sharing a border with Morocco. It is home to various people groups, many who are refugees waiting for passage to mainland Europe. It presents a unique opportunity to reach these desperate people with the love and message of Jesus without the restrictions imposed by the State. Our group will also visit the crossroads city of Fez – the second largest city in Morocco (pop. 1.5 mil.). As a Muslim country, Morocco is restrictive in regards to open religious activity. Security is an issue and absolute compliance to authority is essential. Yet, we believe our presence and prayers will make a difference.
The dates of the trip are October 8-16. The cost will be approximately $1,800. This includes round-trip airfare from JFK-NYC; accommodations, food and in-country travel. Team members will need to book air reservations on the designated flights with British Airways. You will be reimbursed for the cost of airfare from support you raise for the trip. The balance of the trip is paid to Doulos Global Ministries.
