As holiday travel to Spain is limited at the moment, it reminded me that I was in that country only 15 months ago. Three of us went out there to support our missionary friends who were in Algeciras, a ferry port and resort of southern Spain.

At the time we were there, the unemployment rate was high and being a ferry port, drug smuggling was a problem. I wonder how the members of that church are getting on now that the corona virus has hit the country..

We often had a laugh when we were there. I only knew about six Spanish words. My friend knew more, especially how to ask for a cup of tea. Useful until we wanted to order chicken. My miming of a chicken were not very convincing. Another time a cockroach was found in one of the cases. Not a laughing matter for the case owner.
