Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

These are some photos from the Bible study that is run by an Australian gal named ‘Indigo’ here in Barcelona! She has been helping out with GBU (Grupos Bíblicos Universitarios, aka, University Bible Groups), this is the University ministry here in Spain, equivalent to AFES in Australia that seeks to promote Jesus on the University campuses and encourage believing student’s to share the good news of Jesus with their friends. There’s about 3 staff workers here over 15 Universities (my stats could be wrong, I will check and update), but still, that’s not much for a big city like Barcelona and a country where there should be plenty more!

This Bible study is held on top of the roof of Indy’s apartment, as you can see it’s very cosy!”

We did a Bible study on the first chapter of Peter’s Epistle this week. Had some great conversations, and discussed what is means to be born-again!”

These are some pics of the artworks that are found in the National Art Museum of Catalonia.

Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God”
La Biblia, Hebrews 12:2

Artwork for alter pieces in Catalonian Churches that date from the 1200’s. I was impressed by their Christo-centric focus. Jesus His death and resurrection is at the centre of alot of their artwork around this period”

Hope you enjoyed these photos from Barcelona… Madrid this Sunday, here we come! Will try to upload more photos as I go. The next 3 weeks will be serving with Betel. Is going to be a different life, but will be a great to see what the Lord is doing there through that ministry.
Till next time, Soli Deo Gloria! Joel.
