Delport family

Church community

Quin, Maleni, and their three kids (Lola, Finley and Max) arrived on the island of Ibiza during the summer of 2017. Before moving to Ibiza Quin spent 18 years in the United Kingdom and came away with a wife, three kids and a British passport.  Quin loves food, photography, and is still a proud Springboks supporting South African.

Maleni moved from Madrid to the UK in the hopes of mastering English and experiencing a different culture for a couple of years.  14 years later she has moved back to Spain (Ibiza) with a husband, three children and a mild decent on the English language. Maleni loves films, coffee, and is known to dominate the dance floor.

There is never a dull moment with Lola and the twins, Max and Finn - three very high energy and friendly little people.

The Delport's favourite family activity is to be around the table sharing food with old friends and new.

Summer season 2018 has begun

Poppy is a member of the San Antonio team in the Ibiza Boiler Room community. She has been coming out to Ibiza for 7 years serving on the prayer teams, two week mission teams and on the long term team. When Poppy got her long awaited visa she moved out to Ibiza in January 2018. 

 

Since I arrived in January, I've had a growing feeling of excitement. I'm excited to finally be here, and excited for the summer season to begin. 

 

Monday 30th April was our first night back out on the streets of the West End in San Antonio, and it did not disappoint. I'm gonna be honest, the first night kind of snuck up on me. Even though I had the date down in my calendar, I found myself a little shocked as I sat in the prayer room at 10:30 for orientation. After all the years of praying and working to get my Spanish visa, it hit me that I was finally here. 

 

For about 30 seconds I let the pressure get to me. 

"What if I let people down?"

"What if I came all this way for nothing?"

"What if I go out there and nothing happens?" 

 

Of course that's all in my head. None of what happens here depends on me. It all depends on God. The truth is that going out into the streets of the west end isn't about me being prepared, or having some sort of amazing master plan. It's simply about me following God's leading.  With him everything is possible (Philippians 4:13).

 

In the end my first night was great. I met a lot of people that I'll get to know over the summer, and I had a great conversation with one of the long term workers. I even got to pray with someone out on the streets! 

 

I walked home that night with a smile on my face, and a heart full of anticipation. This is just the beginning. I can't wait to see what God's going to do next!

Ibiza, we’ll be back...

If you're considering applying for one of our Short Term Mission Teams this summer, then read Karen's account of what it was like for her and the team:

 

It was late July 2017 and 8 of us from Belfast arrived into the Ibiza heat to be greeted by Jud and Stephen. It was a first for all of us, but as we walked down the packed main strip on our first night, all we had to do was mention “24-7” and we were welcomed like old friends.



Nights started with prayer and worship, then into an hourly rhythm between the prayer room and the streets. In the prayer room we interceded for the town and individuals, we brought the hard situations we witnessed to God, and we lifted up his name in the midst of a place where so many other things were being worshipped. At times it flowed easily and the presence of God was tangible, at other times it was like waging war (either in the spiritual, or against heavy eyelids at 3am!)



When we went out on the streets we were each paired with one of the long-termers and, basically, we did whatever was needed at the time! If people were lost, we helped them find their way home. If they were unable to walk, we called for the wheelchair or the aptly named ”vomit van”! If they needed someone to talk to, we listened. And, at times, we had the privilege of sharing the gospel, giving out Bibles and praying with people right there on the street. It felt like just trying to love people like Jesus did…and at times, as we knelt on a busy dirty street to help someone, who swiftly vomited on us, we had to remember that Jesus did exactly that for us!



During the days we (firstly, slept!!) had team time, prayer walks and had an opportunity to enjoy some of Ibiza’s beautiful beaches and stunning sunsets. As a team of varying ages, who didn’t know each other well to start with, we bonded as we served together, laughed together, ate together, prayed together, sweated together and got to celebrate what God was doing in and through each of us. Ibiza, we’ll be back!
