Abraham Rios of Seville, Spain, is grateful for the work of Southern Baptists. Believers who were willing to be totally obedient pointed him to the Savior.
For Abraham, it started at the university on a break from class. First, an International World Changers team asked him to participate in a spiritual survey. Then, short-term worker Yasmin Vila Limo followed up and found that Abraham was seeking the truth.
Next, missionary Martha Moore stepped in to disciple him and get him involved in Connexxion, a student evangelism ministry she started in Germany that is being reproduced on other campuses.
Abraham became close friends with Christians, including other Southern Baptist missionaries and began attending a church plant. Friends celebrated his profession of faith and baptism in 2011.
Today, Abraham is leading the Seville Connexxion team and partnering with missionaries to reach Seville with the Gospel. “God is really using Abraham as a strong Christian leader and as a man who follows God. It’s not easy for him to do that [in the Spanish culture],” says Martha.
Pray for Abraham to be bold and wise in a culture that does not recognize a need for God.
Pray for Martha, who now serves in Germany, and the growth of Connexxion in Western Europe.
