The "Aierdi Miracle" is what we call the wonderful story of God’s providence through which He gave us the rustic old Aierdi farmhouse in the Basque region of northern Spain. It all began when in 1998 the Lord led us into a prayer project called “Count the Stars”, based on the promise He gave to Abraham in Genesis 15:5. Today we are in the faith-challenging adventure of rebuilding the centuries-old farmhouse and adapting it for all kinds of ministries. With the help of many churches and friends, it is slowly being transformed into a retreat & conference. Although far from finished, we already use it to host church activities, youth programs, intensive institutes, retreats, and mission teams throughout the year. As we look back and remember the many months of prayer and waiting, with nothing to stand on but the promise of God and the stars to remind us of His faithfulness, we praise and worship Him for His wisdom. Glory to God! The stars still shine as sparkling witnesses of His infinite faithfulness and power. Andy Bonikowsky Genesis 15:5
The year was 2000. This was Aierdi. This was our congregation. (most in the pic were missionaries) In 19 years much has changed. We had no idea what God would do. Lord willing, this week we will have our first ever Apologetics retreat, with about 35 believers. In 2019 God's farmhouse will host three intensive institutes, two youth mission teams, several province church fellowships, a Christian workers retreat, the 16th Missionary Teen Retreat, and a few other activities.
