Missionary to Spain
More than one Christian missionary to Spain has a blog - what better way to get to know them? Blogging is becoming more and more common in Europe, and each missionary to Spain has unique insight into what the country and culture is like, and what it's like to serve God there.
You're about to meet several missionaries in Spain, mostly around the urban area of Madrid, a city expanse with around 6.5 million people (though only a little over half that number are in the city proper). But first, let's get to know the country a little.
A little about Spain
The Kingdom of Spain (Reino de España) is a European country with a rich history centuries old. Today, Spain is a modern country with a large amount of income from industry and tourism. Over 46.5 million people live in Spain, and most would consider themselves Roman Catholics. However, some polls suggest that less than 20% ever even attend mass. There are small but significant numbers of Jehovah's Witnesses, Evangelicals, Mormons, and Muslims. Others hold to various religions, though a large number would say they don't even believe in God.
