Ken and Cathy
∙ Appointed for long term service in Spain. (2012)
Ken and Cathy Yinger have been living in Jerez de los Caballeros, in the region of Extremadura, Spain, since 2014. God has given them a vision to see healthy, multiplying churches started all over this part of the country, an area that has less than 1,000 believers in a population of over 1.1 million people. The dominant religion is a medieval Catholicism that is based on traditional rituals rather than Scripture and a personal relationship with Christ. Although many profess atheism, and that is considered acceptable, evangelical Christianity is viewed with suspicion. They are building relationships as a means to share Christ and to meet felt needs, such as being hospitable, teaching English, etc. They have gathered a small group of believers who meet weekly in their home for prayer and Bible study.
