Home again!

Praise the Lord, I’m back in Spain. I thank the Lord for the great time I’ve spent in the US the past 9 months, but I feel like I’ve just made it home again. I flew into the Madrid airport Friday last week after a pretty much uneventful flight across the Atlantic.

I’m really looking forward to this upcoming summer. I’ve already been busy here, and had a great time with my family. My brother Mark is back here from college for the summer, so I’ve been spending a lot of great time with him.

In the next few weeks I’m hoping to detail more specifically a few of the ministries I will be involved in this summer. My biggest goal this summer is to help serve my grandfather Al Bonikowsky’s church in Irun. I will be spending a lot of time there, Lord willing.

For now though, I’ll just share a few pictures.

Here my brother Mark and I are preparing the roof of an old barn for a cement cap. One project this summer will be to replace the leaky, several-hundred-year-old roof with a modern one. Of course, our goal is to get it done without having the whole structure cave in as we do it!

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to preach from one of my favorite passages in the Bible, Psalm 34. It was also the first time I’d spoken Spanish in a while :).

This is the church I grew up in, and it’s always such an encouragement to be with the believers there. They’ve always grown stronger every time I come back to see them.


Please pray for me this summer. I am really looking forward to what the Lord has planned. I think it will be a stretching time for me in many ways.

God bless,

David Bonikowsky
Ps. 34:3
