Centro Cristiano mission station, Almeria, Spain. Built in January 1971 by Chris & Christine brick by brick with no machinery whatsoever. They were the very first to take the Gospel to an entire region and shuttled Spanish peasants from tiny villages dotted all around this huge mountainous region to Centro Cristiano to hear the gospel for the very first time; and where people obtained a Bible of their own for the first time as only a priest was allowed a Bible.
In 1999 Centro Cristiano then became Christian Centre and again became the first Gospel witness for the Lord in the English language as the one and only Anglican priest at that time admitted he did not believe in the Bible and did not preach the Gospel. Their vision inspired others who had been attending Christian Centre, and fellowships started springing up all over this spiritually barren region meeting the needs of many.
“There are several fellowships/churches here now that came out of the work of the Christian Centre as you were the first” Pastor D. Hamilton. AOG Missionary, Spain.
“You laid the foundation here, making things so much easier for us all” Church in Turre, Spain.
Centro Cristiano. Christian Centre.
Some of the caravans donated to house people in need.

The tree that saved the lives of the two German girls. However, the tree was considerably larger then. The other half had to be completely sawn off & drastically trimmed due to electrical wires (scroll to end for the amazing story of this tree!).
