Spain - Daniel & Gail Castro

Gail grew up in the North East of England. She came to the Lord at the age of 13 at a youth camp. After completing her theological training at Northumbria Bible College she felt a call for missions. In 1990 she left for Costa Rica for language training and in 1991 to Bogota, Colombia.

Having been born in Colombia into a Christian family Daniel felt the call to serve the Lord when he was in his early teenage years. In 1987 he enrolled in the Seminario Biblico de Colombia, a theological Seminary founded by OMS. In 1991 he finished his studies and went to work in the Christian Fellowship church in Bogota. There he met Gail and they were married in 1993.

Daniel and Gail served in Colombia with OMS for 16 years in church planting, bible training, worship, and social ministries. In 2007 they returned to the UK for home assignment and a period of further Theological training. After completing their studies they felt God directing them to work in Spain where OMS has been serving since 1972.

The Castros share a passion for presenting God’s message in challenging and relevant ways and a commitment to church development and the training of Christian leadership. These are central to their ministerial involvement in Spain where they serve in a local church in Madrid. They are also part of a church planting team in the town where they live.

Daniel and Gail have two daughters, Melissa and Ruth, both born in Colombia.

Bible verse:
“For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness”, made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”(2 Co 4.6, 7)

The work One Mission Society missionaries do every day goes beyond that of your average day job. Through the application of biblical principles, the people of OMS bring both physical and spiritual hope to thousands around the globe.
