What a beautiful place we actually live in ❤️
Hi all, wishing you all a wonderful 2023! I always find it special, a new year, with new opportunities, challenges. At the turn last year (2021-2022) Evelyn, the children and I wrote on a paper where we expected to be in exactly one year. We then read these papers to each other last week to […]
Schools and mission trips!
We had a very nice Pioneer Training School! A great team and great students. Just now we waved goodbye to the last participants. It was the first time we held a school at this location, and it has been very good. Especially for families, the place turned out to be very suitable, with lots of […]
A beautiful weekend Portugal (and Thijs baptized!)
Last week we traveled to Portugal for a kickstart weekend. We left with a full car (7 people). Thijs was also allowed to come along this time, it was quite an adventure for him! Since it was quite a drive, we decided to spend the night somewhere halfway. We asked a new disciple Javier, who […]
El refugio de Dios (The refuge of God)
Hey all, just an update from the south of Spain! In this period we are working hard to prepare the disciple house which our Dutch friends Ronald and Ellen recently bought. https://robbertdam.nl/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/vid-sabariego.mp4 We hadn’t been in the south of Spain long when I had some email contact with Ronald. I knew him from a year […]
‘Are they refugees from Ukraine?’ – Whole family baptized
In my previous blog, I wrote about the plan to reach the white villages of Spain with the gospel. We went with a team along the way to about nine places to take the gospel there. This is now behind us! And very nice things happened again! Rodrigo and I said to each other at […]

What a change!
“Taste and see that the LORD is good.” (Psalm 34 verse 8) Yeah, it’s really amazing to see. Earlier in my blog you could see a video about Salvador who decided to follow Jesus and was baptized. He was at that time addicted to alcohol, was considerably overweight, lived in a house full of cockroaches […]

God is adding people to our team!
When I wrote the previous message, we were still in Torremejía, a town just below Mérida. In the meantime we traveled further to the province of Málaga. We first spent two days at the sea in Torremolinos. That was nice, but we couldn’t really do much there and we felt we were out of place […]
An update from Spain!
So, I felt like writing something for my blog again. It’s been way too long! I intended to Twitter and also this blog… but in practice that turns out to be difficult. The main reason is that a journey like this is full of surprises. And sometimes it takes so completely unexpected turns that you […]
