Missionary to Spain: Ariel Rainey

On August 12th Ariel Rainey, a missionary to Spain will speak about the people God is reaching through her ministry.

Come hear what God is doing and how YOU can be a part of it.

A little about Ariel from her Assemblies of God World Missions bio:

After more than 15 years in missions in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, Ariel Rainey is currently the General Director of the Oasis Center ministry in Madrid, Spain.  Oasis Center seeks to develop connections, disciples, and ultimately the Church among Muslim immigrants and refugees in Madrid.  Offering classes in Spanish, English, Art, and homework help for children, Oasis Center is impacting the diverse neighborhoods of Madrid, and each volunteer is a witness of the life-changing power of Jesus. In addition to her administrative responsibilities, Ariel leads the women’s ministry of Oasis Center, with a monthly breakfast outreach and a weekly arts/crafts class.

Although the world is influenced by fear of Islam and all it represents, Ariel has spent her entire career working with Muslims, using education as a platform.  She frequently uses II Corinthians 4 to define her own ministry and inspire others to reach Muslims: “Therefore since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.”

Ariel loves communication; she speaks English, French and Spanish, and makes funny jokes in Arabic with Oasis Center students. She enjoys preaching, teaching seminars, and writing when she gets a chance.  She’s also a singer with her local church worship team, taking every opportunity to lead others into the presence of God in prayer, praise and worship.
