“Here is a vignette from our last three months overseas,” says Cathy Pott, who recently returned from traveling with her husband Hank. They are members of the One Challenge (OC) U.S. Mobilization Center’s (US-MC) Global Ministries Team.
“During our fortnight (two weeks) in Spain recently, we were hosted for several days by the Calderons in Sevilla. Their English was very limited, and our Spanish was not much better. So we majored on eye contact and gestures and verbal grunts that needed much compassionate interpretation.”
“One morning we sat down to breakfast, a typical nicely arranged plate of cheeses and meats. Cathy wondered what meat we were enjoying, and Vianmey struggled with the correct word…. She finally looked at us and said, ” Oink, oink…” (We wondered if Paul had similar issues trying to explain “meat offered to idols” to his Corinthian friends…?).”
“The Calderons were called and committed to a community of 165,000 which had NO evangelical witness. We had a great week together.”
