Then the work on this mission trip started. It was planned to have an English afternoon tea for the ladies of the church and others. Afternoon tea is little known in Spain.
Nearly 40 ladies attended – church members, non-Christians, Muslim ladies and friends. We had provided a tremendous amount of food which disappeared quickly and some took plates of food home for their families. I imagine the ladies were actually hungry, a reflection of conditions in this port town of Spain.
Meanwhile our young people were entertaining the children of the ladies elsewhere. About 30 children with hardly a common language!! I think we had the easier job.
