Mission Bite #169: God Will Give the Increase

God gives the increase. We clearly saw this in Barcelona. Barcelona is the capital of the region in Spain where Catalan is spoken, and Keith had been asked to record the entire New Testament in that language. He made appropriate contacts. Then he went there to arrange it. A few weeks later, as requested, he and I flew to Barcelona to begin, but we could not do any recording. Perhaps due to all the political unrest, the people there had not found anyone to record. We explained again what was necessary. We prayed together. But finally, there was just nothing else to do but go home.

We had planted, perhaps another recording team will water. God will give the increase.

Pray that Catalan-speaking Christians will use all available opportunities to spread the Gospel among Catalonians.
