Jo is studying Spanish and Italian at Durham University and wanted to use her year abroad to serve God and improve her language skills. Jo spent four months (September – December 2018) in Bilbao, Spain and then six months in Bologna, Italy (January – June 2019).
In Spain, Jo served at Sarriko Church in Bilbao where the evangelical Spanish speaking church and international English speaking church are linked. Jo was involved with bible study groups, helping with the children’s work and music. She also taught English and shared the gospel through that.
In Bologna, Jo served at Forte Torre Church alongside Crosslinks mission partners JP and Sue Aranzulla.
Thank you very much for your prayers; your support is so valuable! Please do keep in touch, I’d love to know how I can be praying for you!
‘For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ Romans 8: 38-39
I was so encouraged reading these verses last week. Even though it’s been a year which has felt very hard and lonely at times, it is wonderful to know that God is always there and that nothing can separate us from his love.
