Who is behind this page? What is its purpose?
Decision has collaborated with Communicating Life to open the website www.unaoracionpor.es with the purpose to promote prayer for the people of Spain who are without an evangelical witness and to provide tools such as videos, photos and statistics on the neediest places. To learn more about these entities you can visit their websites: www.e-decision.org and comunicandovida.com.
How is data researched?
Since its beginning 36 years ago, one of Decision’s jobs is to do research on the need for the Gospel witness in various regions of Spain. John Blake has been the promoter of this project that has resulted in brochures, conferences, websites and all sorts of resources to mobilize believers toward the unreached peoples who are without an evangelical church. The research process involves the analysis of various sources listed as places of worship in Spain, personal pastors and denominational leaders, surveys and field exploration. This study focuses only on the towns with over 5,000 inhabitants because we understand them to be the priority right now; however there are thousands of smaller towns without a witness who also need the Gospel.
Many Spaniards ignore the reality of the evangelical presence in their land. In Latin America and North America there is a clamor to God for Spain. Many churches around the world share this concern and pray for God to work and advance the Gospel. At the same time, there are few tools that provide concrete and timely data on these people who are without a gospel work. This site seeks to fill that void with the goal that people are adopted and sponsored. We understand “adopting” to be a commitment to pray and evangelize the people until there is a church and by “sponsoring” we commit to pray often for a Gospel witness soon.
What resources does the page offer?
There are videos on the neediest regions which include a short documentary and prayer. Information is incorporated from Wikipedia on history, demographics and other data provided by the encyclopedia. In addition, the web will continue to grow in the future with new resources and contributions from those who visit. Your prayers and commitments will help advance the gospel until the testimony of Christ reaches the corners of the bull’s skin (all of Spain).
Who can I can direct to the page?
Decision and Communicating Life encourage all who are interested in praying for Spain to pass on this site to any person, entity, church or mission that wants to participate in the advancement of the gospel in Spain, supporting this work both in prayer and, perhaps, sending workers to the areas of greatest need.
