Featured Missionary: Justin and Grace Hayes

August 26, 2014 at 2:22 PM

Our featured missionary family this week is Justin and Grace Hayes of Madrid, Spain.

Sometimes, things don’t work out as expected. After thirteen years of prayer, mission trips, Bible college, internships, and deputation, Justin and Grace Hayes arrived in Ireland on January 21, 2008. For two and a half years, they worked alongside Irish believers at the Lighthouse Baptist Church of Swords, in North County, Dublin. Their weeks were filled with discipleship, Bible teaching, Sunday School lessons, media presentations, and most importantly, soul winning.

However, two months after arriving in Ireland, they were notified that the Irish government had changed previous immigration laws, and that they would only be allowed three years in country. They continued to feel a strong burden for Europe, and after much prayer and consultation, they decided to focus on Spain. They arrived in their new country November 29, 2011. They are currently serving in a local church in the capital city of Madrid, while they spend time learning the language and the culture.
