We went to monastery of Montserrat. Cathedral was santa maria nera. “Black St. Mary”. Pilgrims stood in line up to 2 hours to kiss her statue. Met with a Monk who was quite nice but had no clue.
Just like we had trouble getting into the Country, we experienced and instantly recognized warfare [at the] last. Think it began on Montserrat.
We are at the airport this morning awaiting our trip to Rome. Praying about agenda in Rome we have been presented with opp. To meet someone there not sure yet if it is God’s assignment for this time.

Yep we’re on our way…or sort of…the plane coming from Madrid had a mechanical and had to turn back!!!scary!!! And change planes so we are delayed FOUR hours so far so we will miss our connecting flight to Barcelona…all in God’s time…we are at O’Hare.
Here’s the schedule I just received from Claudia:
leave today [the 16th] for Barcelona arrive tomorrow a.m.
leave Barcelona on Sunday a.m. for Rome and stay there til Thursday a.m. we fly WIZZ AIR to Budapest. This is a big one to cover, only one flight a day and if the cancel it, they cancel it…we don’t have control and other flights are $600+ to go on another airline.
In Budapest we attend conference with European leaders and learn how we can partner to see the prayer movement spread across Europe. Exciting times…thanks for praying.
We love you all…
Claudia and Jody.
