Ten years ago, Dan Leatherwood and his family started an “English Cowboy Camp” as a part of their full-time ministry in Spain.
The vision of this trip is to use the great interest of learning English in Spain to share the Gospel. Christian English speakers serve as the counselors of two weeks of camp each summer. The reputation of this camp has grown in the surrounding Spanish communities over the years as a place where children have a positive, fun experience.
The campers are generally from homes where Jesus is unknown, and most of the children have never even opened a Bible. In years past, there have been lines of parents outside the Leatherwood’s local church waiting to sign their kids up for camp. As a result, waiting lists were created for all the kids who exceeded the capacity of the camp facilities.
The need is great, and this trip and all its details are all within God’s perfect timing. Our team will be serving as staff for the third week of the camp, which is the first time that a third week has been offered! The three weeks of English Cowboy Camp are not Christian camps, however, the campground and facilities are owned and maintained by seven local assemblies, it is directed by the Leatherwoods, and Christian teams from the U.S. serve as the staff.
The English language and the western cowboy theme are used to connect with the kids. Bible verses as songs are used for sing-a-long times, biblically themed lessons are shared each day, and the Bible being read around the kids are just some of the many ways that the staff use English to invite opportunities to share the gospel. For six days, the staff has the opportunity to live out the gospel with the hope of eternally impacting each of the kids’ lives.
BONUS OUTREACH: After camp we move to evangelism in Zaragoza, Spain using Emmaus Courses and working with CMML missionary Pamela Catalan and an established local church in the city.
