Transform 2017 Spain- Rural Villages of Extremadura

Transform 2017 (www.transform.om.org) is a unified effort around Europe to create momentum for the gospel by mobilising people and training them in telling their personal God story. To involve young people who have participated in the TRANSFORM conference in outreach in towns of La Vera in western Spain, especially to young people and children. The goal will be to reenforce relationships that have already been established by the local team, as well as develope new "contacts" which can be continued when the campaign is over. All within the overriding purpose of sharing Christ's life

La Vera is a district of 19 small towns among the foothills of a mountain range in western Spain, where most people have abandoned the traditional religion and many are searching for a good life in a "back to the earth" experience as well as various false religions, including New Age philosophies. Young people are basically anti-religious, many live a disorganized life-style, and some want to take life seriously but need the Truth.

The Transform Conference is a unique opportunity to meet and hear international speakers, and intercultural mission practitioners from the fields in the Mediterranean. You will be refreshed and equipped to reach those in the Mediterranean including refugees, Muslims & trafficked peoples. The conference includes an outreach in Cambrils where the Transform conference on Spain's east coast, participants will travel across the country to La Vera district where we will fit in with the summer hot-season schedule. Normally noone is out from noon until 8 or 9 pm, except at the natural swimming pools along the streams coming down from the mountains. The main outreach will take place in the morning and at night, with a good time of siesta in the afternoon. Activities with children, interaction with young people, and just hanging out where they are in the evening, sports and possibly some language interchange are some of the ways we want to use those days. There may be opportunities to get to know North African people.
