New Generation Vision and Vehicle Appeal
We recently spent time with Eli and Sherling in Madrid, Spain with their two boys Mateo and Santiago and we love them so much. Their passion for Jesus and people is amazing and they have a big God given vision for Spain and in particular Madrid. They have planted a church, look after people from many countries, organising a World Mission Conference, have home church groups in many parts of Madrid, train and equip leaders and now have a vision for children and young people. Below is set out of that vision and please take time in reading about it – true God inspired. We at MVGB are raising fund for them, they need a vehicle to get around Madrid and areas beyond. Besides a growing family they take people everywhere and transport is anise for them. They visit homes, hold home groups all over Madrid, so a vehicle is very much needed. We have looked together at the need and come up with a vehicle we believe is suitable for themselves and the ministry which will ensure many people reached with the gospel and their lives transformed – https://www.coches.net/citroen/spacetourer/diesel/segunda-mano/madrid/ here is a link to the vehicle and if you would like to give to this fund raiser please follow give link here and write in the comment box ‘Sanchez vehicle Support’. Many thanks and please continue to read about their vision.
Reaching, Training, Equipping and Sending the New Generation
while he was still young, he began to seek the God.2 Chronicles 34:3
When We think in reaching, equip and sending the young generation we love to think about Josiah who was born in the middle of a family with bad heart , his dad and grandfather that were not following Gods word but destroyed with corruption and bad thing the generations before Josiah and once he took place in the kingdom he decide not to follow his grand father or his father step but the step of the king David and choose to serve God and he took hard choices that not only change his life but the whole generation that he was serving. So when children and young people find their identity in Christ they will took the place in the kingdom and they will serve no matter what giant is in front, they have that Faith that only came from the heart of God. We are praying for a New Generation that will be reached, trained, equipped and send it to reach the nations with the message of Hope and Love.
This Missions Field: Spain
This missions field is located in strategic place where is connected with the rest of Europe, but also is well connected to middle east thought Morocco and Africa having two cities in African continent. And when we says well connected we mention that is a door with vision to reach more countries.
But just Spain have over 8 millions children under 17 yrs old, this represent the 17.9 % of the whole people in this country. And most of them live in the big cities and Madrid is the city that have more representation of the infants in Spain. From this only 971.479 are foreign children so most of the children. The news report that children are living in broken families like never before because the divorce have increase so many in the last 7 yrs in Spain. The family association in Spain says that every minute 5 divorce are happening and Spain is the second country that have higher percent of divorce in all Europe. This make over 150.000 children every yr been affected by problems of broken families.
The need of children in Spain
For this reason thousand of children are living in the middle of the chaos and knowing all the problems of their parents they are in the middle of the fight. And they are living alone, trying to resolve their problems in school with drugs, bad friends and as the association family in Spain says living under depression even when they are children and the percent of children and teen that are choose suicide is increasing more and more.
God is calling us to save the New Generation
For all what we explain before of the emergency to save this new Generation this project NEW GENERATION have four direction:
Reach: In this mission field we are talking of children with no christian background, with atheist families around or just other families that faith is just not part of their lives. And we are called to bring the gospel and hope to those children and young people. Using all the strategic and tools to bring the gospel.
Training: Training them with the gospel and many others tools so they can be ready for life, for difficult situations, training them with discipleship so they can heal first all the pain that they are carrying but also empowering them so they can be the Josiah of their generation.
Equiping: We believe that God choose you and prepare and equip you for the call or dream that he have for you for this reason we are dreaming in a place that can give different tools to this young generation so they can keep reaching others, impacting lives wherever they are or they go.
Sending: The vision of New Generation is this have a movement of children and young people ready to go, to impact, to transform, in their city, in their country in their continent and end of world. Sending them because we believe they will be pastors, leaders, missionaries that will respond to the call of God in this generation.
New Generation project is the bridge, the dream center that can help to transform lives and transform generations with the love of the gospel.
How can we get started?
For yrs we been working with children and young people in Nicaragua and Latinamerica, one of our prayers always as been Lord open doors so we can reach children and young people in Europe and as Eli always says with the vision of from Spain to the rest of the nations, because we believe in a vision that don’t stay quite but is constant moving and its a movement.
This yr in January we had a call of leaders in Spain saying guys we want you to consider including children and young people in your project beside of planting churches and we know it was our prayers to God, the door not for our dream but the call of God for having a movement in this nation and with this he was putting connection with many churches all around Spain.
After praying we decide to star with our onw church doing outreach of children and young people and now we have a group of young people that we are training and giving discipleship. with this team we have choose 10 churches in Madrid different denominations, and we are presenting the vision to every pastor and choosing two people that love working with children and young people some of them are bible school teachers all ready and we are planning to have a first meeting with all those 11 churches including our church and present this project, vision, have a special camp just to train them how to work with children and young people and challenge them so we can start with group in every church christian and no christian giving discipleship, planning the first camps for children and one for young people.
once we have strong team here in Madrid and the program running we are moving forward to other region of Spain where we have been talking with 3 different couples that have a passion for children and young people, so we can multiply what we are doing in Madrid in other region of Spain. And having a strong team not only of teachers, but children and young people leaders they can have their first missions trip to train other to others region of Spain, during weekend.
We also are planning that every church team can have outreach every weekend and once a month all together in one big area of the city.
