Derek and Mary Lynn Parnell
The Parnells serve with Greater Europe Mission in the city of Girona, Spain, part of the Catalunya region. They serve as the Iberian Peninsula Field Leaders over Spain and Portugal, with the overall mission to see cities transformed through sharing life and the gospel with the people with whom they are in contact.
Although the primary language in their region is Catalan, Christian fellowship, teaching and worship in Catalan is rare. The Evangelical church is on the rise, but primarily among South American immigrants who worship in Spanish. There is little to no outreach or focus on the Catalan people group (the locals) and the Parnells' hearts are drawn to see many Catalans come to faith and in-turn, lead others who will lead others.
In their free time, the Parnells enjoy going out on day trips to see the area, including seeing the mountains, the beaches, and cities. They have four children: Isabel, Eliana, Emmanuel, and Elyse.
