Mariano & Fanny Pineda
Mariano and Fanny are originally from Argentina, and they’ve been serving in Spain since 2001. But it wasn’t until 2007 when they discovered the Camino de Santiago (Saint James Pilgrimage) and walked it themselves, that it changed. The Camino was a “before and after” experience for them. They fell in love with it and the opportunity to share God’s love with fellow pilgrims in a holistic way. Every year, more than 300,000 pilgrims from more than 180 nationalities walk the Camino. Most of them are spiritually seeking and spiritually open. So in 2013 after finishing their work with students in Madrid, they moved to the Galicia area (NW Spain), and for the last 5 years, they’ve been serving and caring for pilgrims in various capacities.
Mariano and Fanny serve in the context of the Camino de Santiago (also known as Saint James way). Together, they founded Casa de Pan (House of Bread), with the vision to create a monastic space where people can find rest, renewal and increased awareness of the presence of God in their lives. Through hospitality, soul care and spiritual formation, they want to see lives transformed by the love of God.
Mariano and Fanny have been married for more than 25 years, and they have twin boys, Teo and Tomas. You can pray for them in the following ways:
Pray for Mariano and Fanny as they lead and cast vision for Casa de Pan. Pray for wisdom and direction from the Holy Spirit
Pray for the pilgrims God will bring to Casa de Pan [either those who physically walk or those whose hearts are set on pilgrimage (Psalm 84:5)]. Just like those on the road to Emaus, we pray that Jesus will reveal himself to them in the breaking of the bread, through Scripture, and through encounters around the table.
Pray for their team and family, for each one's continual progress in their pilgrimage with Jesus, that they will be salt and light to their neighbors in the village of Angueira de Castro
