Serving Pilgrims and Locals along the Camino de Santiago (Wes and Sherry Koop)
Pilgrims’ Oasis Café and ministry in Viana, Spain
After being married for 34 years and raising 2 grown daughters, we are finally fulfilling a word God gave to us over 30 years ago...that we would someday serve long-term overseas! Some things just take time!!
Where We Work
We are running a small non-profit cafe in the village of Viana, Spain, along the Camino Frances of the Camino de Santiago--an 800 km pilgrimage that hundreds of thousands come from every continent to walk each year. We provide a relaxing place where we care for them physically with ice packs, foot baths, and our snacks and drinks, as well as spiritually with our 'food for thought' Bible reading and prayer time. We are also excited about continuing to build relationships with the local people in Viana and the surrounding area.
