Greetings from Sunny Spain

Greetings from the Southern half of Spain.  The P, the J, and the M have arrived in the land of the Conquistadors and the World Cup/Euro Cup champions.  We're on our way south from Madrid to meet up with our friends the Fernandez family.  We'll be talking a lot of business and potential ministry opportunities, but it's nice to be able to do this trip as a family instead of being separated. All is fine here.  It's always fun to come to Spain since I can speak Spanish.  But I also feel that Spain is one of the least friendly countries in our region.  It's surprising since it's more of a hot weather climate/culture, but usually it's just not that friendly of a place.  We'll see how it goes this time around.

The weather is hot, but not uncomfortably so.  The closer we get to Almeria and the Fernandez, the hotter it will get.  That area is desert and it's actually where a lot of those old Clint Eastwood westerns were filmed like "the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

This is Marco's first visit to Spain.  He was actually here before once in 2002, but he was a a zygote in the womb.  Thus far he's really enjoying the climate. I think we all are.
