House of Freedom. One Year in Casa Libertad

Hey everyone! This is Emily. I have something on my heart I really wanted to share with you as we’ve followed God in this new journey. We landed in Barcelona 1 year ago and one day after I turned 40. We had a small window to choose dates to fly and it so happened that the best price was on my birthday. This was fitting since I like good deals and new adventures. What I really mean is that I like the concept, the magical idea of new adventures! We felt confident and knew that this decision was right for our family and although sad and missing comforts and friends, the kids were on board...

How to Build A Kingdom Life Inspired by Your Vision

I believe one of the greatest missing components in the lives of believers today is Leadership. Sadly, when we turn on our TV’s, radios, and web-browsers, we aren’t hearing many stories of great leadership in action. We don’t hear about people pouring out their lives to serve others and we don’t hear about many leaders who are honest and keep their word. Even in our own political system. With these kinds of public examples, it’s no wonder there is a crisis in leadership.  That’s why I want to give my life to serve Christian leaders by helping them understand...

Are We Moving Home?

We are coming to the end of our first year in Barcelona! I have to be honest with you, this has been one of the craziest, emotional, difficult, amazing, incredible, and beautiful years of our lives. We have been stretched, strained and pulled in every direction imaginable – spiritually, emotionally and mentally. All the kids would say the same.  But it has been a year of tremendous growth. Have you ever heard of the study of tree rings? Scientists once thought that the most growth occurred in times of plenty such as perfect weather and plenty of water. What they discovered is the...

The Hardest Part of Living in a Foreign Country

Moving across the ocean is hard and much more difficult than any of us expected. It’s one thing to get rid of everything you own. Trying to relocate your family to a different nation in a completely different context, is something different all together.   I’ve always tried to focus my life on pouring myself into the things God really cares about. If you are trying to serve the things most on God’s heart – make sure you are caring for the widow, the stranger (a foreigner), and the orphan. Anyone who knows me is well aware that I poured myself into serving orphans...

Calling, The Davis Family, Leadership and Spain

A little over twenty years ago I told God I would follow him wherever he wanted me to go. That journey has taken me and my family all over the world. We’ve had the privilege of caring for widows and orphans in ten countries and I have taken hundreds of people with me. It’s been one of the greatest joys of my life. For most of those twenty years I’ve clearly known the vision and next steps of our journey. But when the call came to move to Barcelona, Spain, the vision wasn’t so clear.  What we knew is that God would build something new in our lives – a different...

Why are we in Barcelona?

Most of my life when God called me to a certain ministry, I knew what the next steps would look like. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t know the details, but I understood the big picture. Not this time. What Emily and I did know, is that we were being called to Spain. And that’s about as far as it went. The signs leading us here were so clear that we stepped out in faith and got rid of most of the possessions we accumulated in 20 years of marriage. I remember both of us looking at each other and saying, “No wonder God hasn’t given us a clear vision for the next phase...
