The Cross Family in Spain

An update from the Cross family – July 2024



July 2024
Ministry Update
Our missionaries in Spain, they have been with World Venture since 2014, and Spain kept coming up as they prayed where to go, they have been in Spain for almost 5 years now, working with a Community Center “Friendship House”. The Friendship House is a community center that focuses on reaching out to refugees and immigrants (mainly from North Africa), as they develop the relationships, they are beginning to see that the trust and the feeling of safety become stronger with each encounter. They provide teaching, clothes, food to the less fortunate, recently they have added to their team a Church Planter, and the community has been very receptive to their interaction.

We have had the privilege to have Grand Canyon University send their second team to serve , by working with the teens on their English as well as math skills, they were given the opportunity to hear about ministry of teaching missionary and third culture kids, they shadowed seasoned teachers in their classrooms. They learned a lot and gave a lot of their time and gifting the short time they were with us.

As my time with my English learning student at the Friendship House grows I feel our relationships continues to grow, The end of the school year coming to an end, I have noticed how much growth in wisdom, and knowledge, I am extremely proud of how far they have come.

Sean is staying busy managing field finances, getting all the logistics in order for teams to come and serve at Friendship House.
Would you please pray for…
  • Praise for the team from Grand Canyon University & their fruitful time serving at the Friendship House and Evangelical Christian Academy
  • Praise that as a body of believers, we can go to God whenever we want or need
  • Praise for all the children finishing the 2023/2024 school year
  • Pray for Andrew and Olivia that our God would be forever at the center of their marriage.
  • Pray that Jack and Evi will finish this school year strong.
  • Pray for Evangelical Christian Academy as they are recruiting teachers for next year and beyond as well as accepting new students.
  • Pray for travel Mercies as we head back to the states
  • Pray for all details that need to be completed as we prep to head back to Arizona for a whirlwind trip.

Much love & many blessings,

Sean & Ruthann
