Spain is Rich with Community

Hobbit dinner party is a great example of community.

It’s incredible to me that God brought us to Spain to start Kingdom Journeys.  I’ve just seen so much from the way this culture lives their lives that it makes sense to me that God would want us to begin in such a rich place.

This country is rich with community.

Dinner here doesn’t start until about 8PM each night for the Spanish people and they want to spend at least 2 hours at the table together.  They purposefully spend time together over a meal, a biblical practice that we see Jesus practice often with His disciples.

Matthew 11:19 – The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.

Luke 22:19 – And [Jesus] took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Hobbit dinner party.

On a journey, community is crucial and very important.  The brothers God has given me on this journey are my community and I am excited to see what happens.

Hopefully we have a dinner similar to the dinner scene on the Hobbit.  Throwing food across the table, half the beer is spilling onto your chest, singing and tons of laughs… that’s a good start to an adventure.

 

God has a huge anointing on Kingdom Journeys, I’ve already begun to see how He is going to use this trip to grow the men.  I spent a few days in Mijas, Spain at G42 with Andrew Shearman, and Justin and I got to spend time with him as he spoke to us about life.  I spent the whole time soaking up what he was saying and then returning to my quiet time with the Lord and journaling what God was speaking to me through Andrew, it was truly incredible.

On the Camino, we have four men Seth Barnes, Mac Schneider, Damon Gee and David Iglesias, coming to mentor us along the way.  Their time is intentional and will be an incredible two weeks as the older generation of men pour into the younger generation… I’ve already heard many of them say that we will be teaching them as well which is a little confusing to me but I’m anxious for God to move.

God is already orchestrating our trip and changing our plans along the way… This year will be full of surprises and walking in faith.  Neil and I were able to do some listening prayer today in a park in Bilbao, God is speaking and moving here.

Spain is rich in community.

Kingdom Journeys is setting our foundation in that richness.

  • Helena Jordão

    Dusty! As you were talking about truth, it struck me not only that yeah Jesus declared himself to be “truth” but also the way aka “Camino” 🙂 they’re on the way to find truth about life, so Jesus being the Way, the Truth, the Life. They will find Him.
    I’m excited for what God has in store for you & to see Him answer the prayers for provision, I’ll see you soon! Finish strong, brother!

    • Dusty Mick Dills
